Thanksgiving baskets 2018

Youth Group Meets on the second Sunday of each month at 11:15 a.m.

The United Reformed Church Youth Group invites all children in 6th grade through high school to join us for variety of community service activities and fun fellowship time together. A few examples of past service include: preparing meals for the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program, organizing toiletry collections and assembling health kits to be distributed by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, providing baskets with baked treats for and visiting the elderly, participating in the CROP Hunger Walk and much more. Fun activities include: hosting fundraisers during the Peter Mayer concert, arts and crafts, games and of course sharing pizza. Community service projects completed by our youth have been featured by the Courier News, TAPinto Somerville and acknowledged by New Jersey Assemblyman Jack M. Ciattarelli.

Gathering time is often on Sundays but does vary based on the event. No need to be a member, just a willingness to enjoy Christian fellowship, as we “love all, serve all”. Friends are always welcome! Please call the church office at 908-725-4545 if you would like more information.

Multi-Generation Survey

This project is a multi-generational survey that compares “Then and Now”.  Each student interviewed an older member of the congregation and compared the differences between growing up then, and growing up now.
