This year the Deacons will be providing food baskets for 15 needy families in the Brookside community for Easter. We are in need of ham and/or turkey donations for the baskets. If you would like to donate a ham/turkey or money to purchase one please see any Deacon. We are also in need of many items in the food closet that must be replenished before Palm Sunday so that we may make the baskets. The first Sunday of the month is “food collection Sunday” but since we are so low on so many items, the Deacons will be leaving the wicker food collection basket in the church entry every week. We rely on donations from you, our church family, and you always provide. Thank you.
• Potatoes (boxed or canned) • Peanut butter/ jelly
• Desserts (cake mixes, etc.) • Cereal
• Gravy • Mac and cheese
• Stuffing • Soup
• Canned vegetables and fruit • Pasta
• Applesauce • Pasta sauce
Please remember that we cannot give away outdated food in our food baskets.
Thank you again for your support.
He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.

Code Purple Decoded
Think of "cold people" when you read or hear the term "code purple". The Code Purple ministry offers cold people, the homeless in our area, supper and an overnight, 6 pm- 6 am, in a safe, warm sanctuary when local weather forecasts predict 20° F or colder overnight. Eight Newark churches participate in Code Purple. As soon as NEC declares a "Code Purple" night, the host churches activates its volunteer staff. At First Presbyterian, volunteer teams serve for an average of 3 hours during "Code Purple" nights.
