I have great news, we will be closing on the new property, God willing next Thursday, May 25th (which is the Feast of Ascension).  Thank you for all of your prayers and support through the process.

Last Sunday in the Link we had a fun-filled discussion on Growing Together as God’s Family, in a new series entitled:

Think of a time when someone just poured themselves into you through loving service.  What about their love to you impacted you?  How did it transform your sense of community with them and others?
Last Sunday we discussed how in our family friendships we encourage one another, just as iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17).

Discussion Questions for Sunday
1. What are some of the reasons you think Churches fall apart?
2. What happens when you “remove Christ” from Church?

May 21, 2017 at 1:00 PM: Following the Diving Liturgy on Sunday, May 21st, you are invited to join for our monthly Lighthouse service to offer a meal, prayer, and Christian love to our brethren in Trenton, NJ area.  More details to follow.

We believe that every member in the body of Christ should be actively serving in the Church.  You are invited to personally get involved and help out by offering your time to serving the many needs of the growing community, as we seek to serve one another, in the model of Jesus Christ.  Drop us a line at and we can help you figure out some volunteer opportunities.
