Caring Ministry at New Providence Presbyterian Church

The Pastoral Care Ministry of our church has one goal for our members – to “Connect the Congregation to Christ through Care.” In addition to caring for our members, we offer various ministries that reach into the community including a prayer shawl ministry and Bearing Grief support group.

Members and Regular Attendees

We have over 30 ordained Deacons who care for our members. Every member belongs to a specific flock and is cared for by a Deacon who prays for each of their flock members, identifies needs within it and determines how best to meet these needs. Our Deacons and Minister of Congregational Care also help with:

  • Meals
  • Hospital & shut-in visitation
  • Financial Advice and Support
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Short-term spiritual counseling & prayer
  • Transportation & shopping services
  • Deacon Flock Ministry
  • Emergency Prayer Chain
  • Grief Support
  • Memorial Receptions
  • National Day of Prayer
  • Thanksgiving Baskets
  • Yarns of Hope
  • Christmas Gifting

Our next Drive thru Dinner will be July 17!

One Wednesday per month, from 5 to 7 pm, New Providence Presbyterian Church (NPPC) will provide meals at no cost to residents of New Providence and surrounding communities. This program - Drive Thru Dinners - will operate each month on a Wednesday evening to supply dinners free of charge to the surrounding community.

These dinners are for those who might be having a bad day, struggling to make ends meet, or simply exhausted, running out of time, and unable to cook! There need not be a financial need. You are invited to come and enjoy a freshly cooked meal. Meals will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Meals will be available in single and family sizes and will be labeled with ingredients. The meals will be distributed on the driveway at the rear of the church just off Passaic Street. Just drive up and you will be greeted by church members who will provide you with a dinner.
