Church Move Complete

this is part of our congregation’s preparation for the pending construction of ten apartments for victims of domestic violence. In the end, we will have provided space for this disenfranchised group in society – even though this is heartily little, as statistics tell us. In recent years, an average of 240 women found refuge in the shelters of Women Aware in Middlesex County. Continue reading
