Our Mission

“Our mission statement is “Proclaiming God by Serving God’s Children.” For us, this means ministry in all areas that is loving,  joyful, creative, prayerful and moved by the Holy Spirit.” We strive, as individuals and as a community, to be a living prayer, embodying the message of Christ in all we do.”

Our History

Organized as a Mission in the town of Stanhope, NJ in 1865, our church was promoted to Parish status in 1981.  In 1993 we moved from Stanhope to our present location, 369 Sandshore Road (corner of Sandshore and Smithtown Roads) in Budd Lake, Mount Olive Township, NJ.  We recently celebrated our 25th year in Budd Lake, with many more to come!
