The good news of the Gospel is that all are members of the household of God and are invited to the Lord’s table. We carry out the mission of the church to extend God’s hospitality to a broken, fearful and lonely world.
PCIN Shares Warm Clothes and Hot Soup in Paterson, NJ
Our partnership with the United Presbyterian Church in Paterson, NJ, is growing. For the second year in a row we led a warm-clothing drive and on February 10, 2019 shared hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, socks and more with local residents in need. UPC provided the hot soup, and our joint volunteer team served up more than 40 bowls to appreciative passersby over the course of a chilly afternoon in the UPC parking lot. Here are a few images of Pastor Timothy Son, Director of Children’s Ministry Rachel Crilley, and PCIN volunteers Jane Kim, Kathy Millstein, and Doug and Tommy Henschen enjoying the day.
