They provide services to people of all faiths in Medford and Medford Lakes. They assist those at risk for homelessness with vital services such as food, water, electricity or gas. They also have clothing on hand.

Need a little help with something around the house or a ride to a doctor's appointment? The deacons maintain a list of people willing to help with simple one-time tasks like this. This ministry is called Helping Hands. We can facilitate help for simple handy man tasks, an occasional ride somewhere, outdoor work, assistance with home electronics or paperwork/filing. If you, or someone you know, is in need of this service contact Pat Cohill, Dave Wood or any deacon and we'll get the ball rolling.
