The Fellowship’s Social Justice program is active in our local community.
The following organizations have one or several members of our program involved in their activities and initiatives. For more information on any of these programs, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working with the Red Cross, twice a year, the Fellowship arranges a blood drive at the Fellowship. Blood is desperately needed across the country; we try to make it simple to donate by having the drive on a Sunday morning during, between and after services.
Eric Johnson House Support Team
Fellowship members provide a home cooked meal for 10 residents of the Eric Johnson House Residence – a community of homeless HIV/AIDS persons whose health is steadied. They are in an 18-month program for addiction recovery, attendance at school, employment, counseling, all leading to an independent, healthy future. Meals are prepared and hosted on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.
Family Promise Support Team
This Emergency Shelter program provides lodging for up to 14 adults and children. The “Guests” stay at various “Host Church” sites and move to a different Host location each week of the year. “Supporting Congregations”, like the Fellowship, provide both the adult supervision (usually in 2-3 hour shifts) and the food required for three complete meals one week each quarter. Fellowship volunteers prepare and serve meals, monitor activities, and assist guests as needed.
Habitat for Humanity Support Team
Fellowship volunteers (age 16 and older) work on Habitat projects in Morris County by providing on-site labor and services. There are numerous ways to get involved, from pounding nails to providing and serving lunch. Contractor and trade person services are always welcomed.
Homeless Solutions Support Team
Our local shelter, Homeless Solutions, located at 540 Hanover Ave, serves as home to nearly 150 men, women and children. On the 2nd Saturday of each month, Fellowship members shop for, prepare and serve a much-awaited “cheeseburger and birthday cake” supper. Volunteers are needed 5 – 7 pm.
Morristown Community Soup Kitchen Support Team
The Fellowship meets a commitment to serve several hundred hungry people in our Morristown community a nutritious midday meal 7 days a week by:
- Raising over $7,500 annually through bake sales, hunger walk and dedicated collection to support kitchen operations.
- Mobilizing 10 Fellowship volunteers to serve lunch on 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Church of the Redeemer in Morristown; four people who have taken the safe food handling class help in the kitchen.
