Tickets cost $13.00 for adults and $8.00 for children (age 12 and under). Advance purchase of tickets is strongly recommended as only a limited number of tickets may be purchased at the door. Take-out dinners will also be available if tickets are purchased in advance.

To buy tickets, sell tickets or for further information, please contact Vicky Lee (908) 813-3418 or Barbara Yankiv (908) 852-3025. Tickets will be sold after worship in the rear hallway to the parking lot entrance.

This is a church event and we ask that you sign up on the volunteer sheet that will be posted in the sanctuary to bake a dessert, set up, serve, clean up, etc. Our “Dinner Planning Team” is doing the organization, but we rely on our church members to help make this dinner a success.

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.
