Missions

Market Street Mission

Over the course of the last 18 months, the Pottersville Reformed Church has been reaching out to a handful of men who are in a recovery program at the Market Street Mission in Morristown. Each week the men join us for our Sunday service and share a meal with us monthly, giving us further opportunity to get to know them. These men are among 60 current residents in the LIFE CHANGE program at Market Street Mission which, in addition to meeting the needs of the homeless, serves men who are struggling with addiction. You can find more information about this vital ministry by going to their website at http://www.marketstreet.org/.

Family Promise (formerly Interfaith Hospitality Network)

PRC and FAMILY PROMISE/INTERFAITH HOSPITALITY NETWORK

Family Promise is a national, non-profit agency that networks religious and community organizations to provide shelter, meals and assistance for homeless families. The local office for Hunterdon County is located in Flemington, NJ.

  • Family Promise in Hunterdon County consists of a group of county churches dedicated to helping temporarily homeless residents of the county. Ten churches are “host” churches and have accommodations to house people overnight in their facilities. About 27 churches are considered “support” congregations who provide and share meals and spend the nights and some weekend hours with the guests. On weekdays, the IHN (Flemington) staff provides job-counseling, assists in the search for housing, and helps with other issues that contribute to a family’s situation. The Pottersville Reformed Church is a support church and several of our members participate at the host church, the Fairmount Presbyterian Church. Participation includes:
  • Supper Preparation and Serving for up to fourteen people.
  •  Overnight Hosts arrive at suppertime and stay with the guests through morning departure.

Those who have questions or may be interested in getting involved in the program can speak with Terri Tweedie or leave a message in the church office.

What We Do

Compassion Evangelical Hospital exists to provide compassionate, high quality, health care to the people of Guinea, West Africa, clearly sharing the love of Jesus in word and deed with every patient. Our goals are to be both a center of excellence for medical care in a region where the lack of access to care results in some of the highest morbidity and mortality rates in the world from treatable and preventable diseases and to be a center of transformation where people find spiritual healing through hearing and embracing the truth of the Gospel.
