WoodsWork Update
We have HUGE NEWS for the congregation!


bruce willis


As you can see from our Instagram post, actor, Bruce Willis, is a native of Penns Grove, NJ where our team built three homes this past month on WoodsWork. After seeing the job site and our efforts, Willis has decided to donate enough land to Habitat for Humanity to build 6 more houses!! This is an incredible gesture! Thank you Bruce Willis for your generosity to Habitat for Humanity!

High School Summer Trips

This year will be the 35th annual WoodsWork mission trip. There will be 130 youth and 50 adults traveling to work with the Habitat for Humanity Chapter of Salem County, NJ. During this trip, youth will learn to build walls, build a home and beautify the neighborhood of the area we are serving. Then in the evening, the WoodsWork Committee Team will lead the mission trip in worship and fellowship. This trip is one you don't want to miss out on. For questions email, Vic Marone (Chair of WoodsWork), vmarone100@gmail.com or Elizabeth Baril (Director of Youth & Their Families) ebaril@woodschurch.org.

High Schoolers can also attend the national youth conference at Triennium. This conference is offered every three years at Purdue for all Presbyterians to find a close and meaningful relationship with God while building strong faith tools. Watch this video to experience all there is at Triennium!

Middle School Summer Trips

We have an amazing mission trip for middle schoolers that travels to Broad Street Ministry in Philadelphia, PA. While at Broad Street, our middle schoolers serve in soup kitchens, impoverished communitys, sell newspapers for those experiencing homelessness, play with children at local VBS programs and experience the life of homelessness in real time. This trip will open your eyes to the pressing needs of a person experiencing homelessness today. Our youth walk away from this trip feeling energized and informed on the needs of those in these situations and we hope that you may want to join us next summer! 

Middle Schools can also attend the annual youth conference at Massanetta Youth Conference. This conference is tailored to middle schoolers and their high energy and love for God. While at the beautiful Massanetta Springs Conference Center in Harrisonburg, Virginia, the Middle Schoolers will be asked to explore God in their lives the powerful meaning of being a Christian in today's world. They will dive deep into their faith with their peers while asking important questions of discipleship!
