The Church Has Left the Building


  On Sunday October 28th instead of coming to church….

in partnership with others churches in the community,

 we commit to “BE the church”.

Let’s break it down:

“Don’t go to church. Be the church!”

On a Sunday each year, a growing number of congregations leave their building to be Jesus’ hands and feet in countless community projects. What started in 2010 with Woodside Church in Yardley is mushrooming into a movement of congregations.  In 2014 Woodstown Presbyterian Church, First Baptist Church of Woodstown, and Asbury Methodist expanded the movement to Salem County, New Jersey.  In 2016 other churches joined in, Alloway Baptist and Pittsgrove Presbyterian.

The movement engages all ages in projects that bless local communities

New for 2018:  A Commissioning Worship Service at 9:00am.

Most projects start at 10:00am


The day is really the culmination of several weeks of prayer, Bible reading, sermons, and small-group Bible studies.   Our theme this year, is from Micah 6:8  “To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God”
