The Special Lenten Offering is an opportunity to give to a special group, event or cause during the lenten season.  To participate, mark your donation ‘Lenten Offering’ and put it in the collection plate at a service or send it to the church office or donate online. We will be collecting this offering throughout the season.

This year the offering will be used to support the work and ministry of the Institute of Music for Children in Elizabeth, NJ.

The Institute of Music is a non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization which believes that artistic expression and the creative process prepare children for success and endow them with life skills and self confidence. The Institute offers high-quality programming in a wide-range of art forms including instrumental and vocal music, drama, dance, visual arts and filmmaking to fulfill its mission of H.A.R.M.O.N.Y — Helping Achieve Responsible Motivated Optimistic Neighborhood Youth.

A recipient of a 2014 Citation of Excellence from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the Institute offers economically accessible, high-quality arts training in a safe and nurturing environment.
