A Message from Pastor Tony

I hope this newsletter finds you and your family well during this holiday season.  This time of year, more than any other, reminds me to be thankful for all that I have and all God has done for my family and me.  It also reminds me of how fortunate we are as a ministry to have people in our lives who have partnered with us in sharing and showing the love of Christ.  The story below is just one example of how God is demonstrating his love through our ministry and your support in substantial ways.
Merry Christmas!
Puerto Rican Community Center, Perry Street


Church on the Block has been building relationships with social service agencies in the area including the Puerto Rican Community Center.  The center serves as a free daycare for kids ages 3 to 5 who come from very poor working families or families in crisis situations.  In addition, they have social workers there to assist and support the families in tangible ways. 

As a ministry, our church wanted to sponsor several families for Christmas and purchase Christmas gifts for the children.  When we approached our church members, they jumped at the idea.  Bear in mind, most of our congregants are in the same financial situation as the families they are helping.  Within a week, most of them purchased gifts with what little money they have and we soon had enough gifts to support fifteen children from three different families.  When Tony and Debbie Palumbo visited the social worker at the community center to bring the gifts, they also told her of our desire to help someone there who was in desperate need.  While they were relaying this, there happened to be a young single mother of two at the community center who recently lost her job and her car.  Her car was towed the week before and it was accruing enormous daily costs.  The woman was not able to pay and the car went into auction.  Tony and Debbie were in the right place at the right time - the desperate need was ten feet away from them.  Because of your generous support we were able to pay the tow company off and get her car out of auction the following day.  The best part is that this woman with two small children, found a job that same week!

Building Into Lives

We cannot express to you how much your generosity and your prayers are helping to transform people’s lives for the better.  In addition to the gift we were able to give the young woman, and three families during this holiday season, we have been able to demonstrate God’s love to many others in tangible ways.  Because of your support we have been able to provide food, clothing and bill assistance over the recent weeks. 
Please pray for us to continue to be faithful
in all that God has called us to!

Year End Giving

Our goal is to help additional families and communities in Trenton by launching another campus in the coming year.  Please consider making a special year-end donation to Street Church Ministries.  We simply can’t do it without you. 

Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.  Thank you for your continued support and friendship. We are looking forward to what God will do in the future and how he plans to use this ministry to make Himself and His love known in tangible ways.

"Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done."
Proverbs 19:17
