TRUSTEES “B & G” WORK DAY @ Meet in Main Office

TRUSTEES "B & G" WORK DAY @ Meet in Main Office | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

God has given us our wonderful building so that Christ’s life-changing ministry may occur in Cranford.

The first Saturday of every month (except the month of July), the Board of Trustees and other dedicated members and friends of FPCC convene at the Church Office and attend to the numerous opportunities that present itself for the upkeep, maintenance and repairs to the Church buildings and grounds. These monthly gatherings help the Church save monies that would not be able to be channeled to other ministries that serve our community if it were not for the dedication of these Buildings and Grounds volunteers. Bravo!

Come join us for a couple of hours to create a warm, welcoming home for all who come here.  Donuts and coffee provided.
