A Message from Pastor Tony

Happy New Year supporters of Street Church Ministries. Because of your generosity, 2018 turned out to be a powerful year at Church on the Block. We have had the pleasure of seeing lives transformed in Trenton by our faithful God. The below example is just one of many transformations we have had the privilege of witnessing at Church on the Block.

Lights On

Many of the people we minister to have become a part of the family that God is building at Church on the Block. Some of our regular attendees have had past addiction issues and some are still struggling.  One man was living in a tent when when we launched last April, now rents a room and holds down a job.  He is still struggling with addiction and this is why we plan to partner with Teen Challenge USA, an Adult & Teen Christian Discipleship drug rehab program with a high success rate. 

Truth be told, there are always some who join our gatherings with ulterior motives like free food and clothing. For several months we would have placed Mark in this category. Two weeks ago, for the first time, Mark picked up and started reading one of the Bibles we have sitting out for our meetings and church services.  Tony recalls "For the first time, our eyes locked.  I saw the lights go on." There's nothing better than watching a person who clearly has been coming for the bagels and coffee, who sleeps during most gatherings, come to life and tune into the the Spirit of God. Since that morning, Mark has been more engaged and more willing to help others. We look forward to watching God flip more light switches in people's hearts.

Building Into Lives

Over the last month we were able to help secure housing for one church member, provide much needed bill assistance to another and provide urgent food shopping needs for several others.

We look forward to seeing what God has in store for this ragamuffin ministry in the upcoming months. We honor your commitment and contribution to Street Church Ministries.
