Sunday Dedication Ceremony & Reception at Bishop Janes UMC
Extreme Makeover: Youth Room Edition by Hannah Heinemann
Girl Scout Troop 60757 is earning their Bronze Award by renovating the Youth Center room in Bishop Janes United Methodist Church in Basking Ridge. The Youth Center room is for students in grades 6-12. The Girl Scouts working on the award are Victoria Anderson, Hannah Heinemann, Jessica Johnson, Melissa Johnson, Lauren Keenan, Emmalee Lafean, and Kyra O’Dywer. All of the girls attend William Annin Middle School. In order to earn the award they will have to each complete 20 hours on the project. After the room is finished, the girls will hold their monthly meetings there. The Youth Center room will also be used by the Middle School and High School youth groups at Bishop Janes for Sunday School lessons as well as social and sacred activities.
All of the girls, parents, and volunteers would like to say "Thank You" to Ricciardi Brothers, Inc. of Harding for generously donating the primer and paint for the room, Camelot Custom Building of Basking Ridge for their generous donation of painting supplies, Vision Building & Development LLC for use of their ladders and drop cloths, and families of Little Lambs Toddler Center for their donation of new board games. Girl Scout Troop 60757 also extends a "Thank You" to Kaleigh Corbett, Director of Youth Ministry at Bishop Janes and Project Advisor and our Troop Leader Joanne Johnson.
Please come to Bishop Janes UMC on Sunday, January 13th at 9:30 am for church services and a dedication ceremony and reception that will immediately follow.
More About Bishop Janes United Methodist Church
Bishop Janes United Methodist Church states in its mission that “visitors are not only welcome—they are expected,” and opens its arms to its community. Bishop Janes aids its members in connecting to not only the church but to the community as a whole. The church offers multiple categories of ministries for its members—women, men, family, children—and within each category are different programs that unite the members in their common goal to “grow in their relationship with God and one another so that all may experience the fullness of Christian life.” Bishop Janes also offers five different music programs as well as mission opportunities and community outreach programs.
The church, in addition to serving as a place of worship, has a childcare facility called Little Lambs. Little Lambs is a New Jersey certified child-care center for all Basking Ridge children ages 18 months to three years.
