Newton Presbytery Youth Gathering

Youth & Young Adult Director– The Presbyterian Church in Morristown

“It’s hard to believe that our churches were meeting, worshipping, and serving together just a little over month ago. The Newton Presbytery Youth Gathering on March 8th, was the next to last time that the youth groups at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown met in-person, and it was probably one of the last in-person events at the Presbyterian Churches in Boonton, Chatham Township, Flanders, Franklin, Morris Plains, and Union Hill as well.

Looking back at these pictures and remembering how much fun our youth groups had assembling close to one hundred breakfast bags for Nourish.NJ, sharing a meal, and playing games together reminds me that our youth groups, ministries, and churches will be meeting, worshipping, and serving together again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Nourish, NJ is formerly known as the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown.  From their website:  “Every day, in addition to the noon-time meal, our take-home table has canned goods and personal care items for our guests.”  The breakfast bags are one of these much needed items for the clients.

In the meantime, we’ll continue to remember our church friends and families and the memories that we’ve built in our places of worship, eagerly waiting to share a pew or a table again. Blessings of health and wellness!”
