Donate Books to Support Deacons Outreach Programs!

New Legacy Books is a Hackettstown based company that sells and redistributes books that are donated.  The Deacons will receive a portion of the books sold.  Book donations can be placed in the green bin with the blue sign that says "Donate Books" in the Church parking lot.

They accept books in good readable condition that have an ISBN bar code. Most paperback and text books have the ISBN bar code on the back cover.  Hard cover books with a jacket must have the book jacket because the ISBN bar code is on the jacket. The books must have an ISBN bar code in order to resell.  They can not accept encyclopedias, magazines or water damaged books.

If you have any questions, please contact a Deacon.


The Mission and Outreach Committee will be collecting backpacks and school supplies to distribute to children involved with the NJ Division of Child Protection and Permanency in Warren County. We are asking for donations of backpacks, notebooks (spiral-bound, 3-ring with filler paper, and composition books), rulers, glue sticks, pens, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, zippered pencil bags or cases, crayons, colored pencils, scissors, and toothbrushes and toothpaste. There will be a collection box in the Chapel, and we will be collecting from July 26th through August 16th. Any questions, contact Donna Erickson or Grace Clegg. We appreciate your support in this mission.
