You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. – Matthew 5:14
HOW CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE???
The staff and members of Collingswood Presbyterian Church are involved in a variety of activities, ministries, and missions to help family, friends, neighbors, and millions of people around the world. Help us to help them. Here’s how :
* The Deacons collect food each Sunday for the Collingswood Food Pantry. Boxed Cereal is always needed but any food items are welcome. Consider clothes soap, paper goods, bath soap and diapers since they are not covered by SNAP. (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program)
* We host the men of the Interfaith Hospitality Network Council in the spring for two weeks. We will need people to provide meals, men to stay over night and transportation to nearby meetings. Please contact the church office if you want to help.
* We work with services in Camden NJ who care for homeless, those in need of clothing and support the work of New Visions Day Center. Volunteers are always welcome at Cathedral Kitchen to serve meals.
*Want to help with the Hurricane Sandy relief? The Presbyterian Disaster Relief is working with West Jersey Presbytery to restore homes and churches of those not covered by insurance and without help. Teams go down to Atlantic City/ Brigantine area on a regular basis. See Pastor Kate for more information.
