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.


As the warmer weather approaches, (have faith; it will arrive soon.), it is time to clean out all those winter clothes and make room for a new spring / summer wardrobe. Pack up all your unwanted clothes, shoes, linens and stuffed animals in garbage bags and bring them to the Deacons’ Clothing Drive on Saturday May 16th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Church’s parking lot. All the clothing will go to a new home and be reused – it is never shredded. The proceeds from the Clothing Drive go to help the Deacons’ mission work in our local community. Can’t make it on May 16th? No problem, you can drop off your bags beforehand in the garage at your convenience. Thank you for your support!
