We at PCTR have had a long history of commitment to missions both local and global. The members are excited and eager to reach out and help a neighbor in need. There is such a great transformation in the hearts of those who serve in mission. Perhaps it is witnessing of the Spirit at work or the love expressed by those served. Whatever it is the result is life changing for everyone! There are many ways you join in the missions of PCTR. Locally we team with Caregivers of Central Jersey to care for the frail and elderly allowing them to return their independence. We also team with Interfaith Hospitality Network the day center is right on our campus in The House of Hope. The Hope Center is another mission we team with. Together we help countless families and individuals when making ends meet becomes impossible for them. Our Food Pantry is also located in The House of Hope and helps to provide food for families and individuals each. Each Thanksgiving, our congregation provides, sorts and packs food for Thanksgiving Baskets that are distributed throughout our area. PCTR is the staging location for Ocean County North CropWalk each October. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, October 17th. Our newest local mission endeavor is Habitat for Humanity’s Brush with Kindness a locally-operated program serving low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. The program is a holistic approach to providing affordable housing and assisting communities as well as families.
