Zion Fellowship Hall Renovation Project

We have opened the Fellowship Hall and the Church!  We'll be back in our church sanctuary for the 10am services beginning on Easter Sunday. The Fellowship Hall will be open and ready for our Sunday school and all other activities.

It's a big and important undertaking so we continue to raise funds to cover the costs.  If you would like to contribute you can send a check to the church at PO Box 152, Barnegat Light NJ 08006, or you can click on the green GIVE button on this page.  Once you've stated the amount you are contributing you can scroll to apply your contribution to the Fellowship Hall Fund.  Thank you!
