2021 Night to Shine

Night to Shine in 2021 went virtual but it didn’t stop us from making it a life changing event for our Honored Guests.

We delivered Night to Shine kits along with dinner for each Honored Guest and had a massive drive thru light parade for all of our guests. It truly was an amazing event!

2021 Summer Jam

Summer Jam Press Play was VBS on steroids! It was three nights filled with worship, games, teaching and fun for kids in Elementary. Our Fresh Start Kids team had a blast hosting it for the families and kids.

Be sure to be on the lookout in 2022 for another installment of Summer Jam! It’s sure to be a hit.

2021 School Supply Drive

Every year we collect school supplies for kids and families in our community. This year we partnered with the Atrium Apartments and North Main Street School in Pleasantville.

As a church, we collected school supplies, assembled them together and hand delivered them to those that needed them. There’s no better way to be the hands and feet of Jesus than to serve others!

2021 Ocean Baptisms

In 2021 we were able to have our Ocean Baptisms in Longport. It’s always so powerful to see and hear those who have accepted Jesus and are now making their faith public through baptism.

If baptism is your next step, we’d love to help you take it. Check out our baptism page on our website to sign up.

2021 Holiday Outreaches

Every holiday season we kick it up into high gear to make sure that we meet the needs of those in our community. It’s who we are and what we’re all about.

In 2021, we partnered with Samaritan’s Purse, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and Stop the Heroin to give a little bit more hope to those that needed it.

2021 Year in Review Video

2021 was an amazing year and would not have been possible without the generosity of Fresh Start Church. 

As we wrap up 2021 and look forward to 2022, what part does God want you to play in seeing more people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus?

Would you consider giving a year end gift to help get 2022 started off right?
