Elijah's Promise

Murder Mystery Dinner Elijah's Promise was founded in 1989 as a small soup kitchen based in New Brunswick, and has since become a multi-service agency that moves people out of poverty. The organization offers many services leading to self-sufficiency.

    What has Elijah's Promise done and is doing:
  • distributed clothing through the clothes line;
  • trained 70 people in the culinary school;
  • Served over 100,000 meals at the soup kitchen;
  • provided over 100,000 meals to low income people through Promise Contract Catering Services-much of this is through meals on wheels;
  • employed several low income people full time through catering employment;
  • served over 20,000 meals to economically challenged people at A Better World Café-in the Reformed Church in Highland Park;
  • provided medical testing to people who can't afford it through the Medical School at RWJ hospital.
Please help as you are able to this very worthy organization. Visit Elijah's Promise on the web at www.elijahspromise.org

Sign up for yoga is going very well, but a lot of people have informed me Wednesday evenings are not a good night (ex: Choir practice).  So I was going to change to Friday evenings, there are no committee meetings on Friday's so this may be the better choice for all concerned.  Also let me know if you would like to have weekly or monthly either way all of classes would be covered include Stress relief, Yoga, Chair Yoga, Yoga for seniors.  Please email me at barbz2@verizon.net and let me know.

Does anyone have a piece of church history they might be willing to give to the church? Articles such as pictures of past activities, newspaper clippings, information on past ministers,or stories that you would be willing to share would be appreciated.  If you do, you can leave them on my desk. My room is on the second floor of the education building next to the treasurers office. If you have any questions call me at 732-828-3223. Thank you. Ginny Herbert
