We are praising God for all the amazing things we’ve been able to do and see as a church over the past few years. We believe that God has more in store and we want to do everything we can to serve those God has called us to serve.

As we look toward 2023 the mission and vision remain the same, to Connect the Love of Christ to the Heart of our Community. We want to reach all those that call New Jersey home while still continuing to love and serve our brothers and sisters across the globe. 

This years’ Heart for the House Christmas offering will be used to do just that, to reach and serve those who desperately need the love of Christ.

We will generously use this offering in three key areas…outreach, next gen updates, and our special needs community through our Night to Shine event. 

Would you partner with us in praying about what God would want you to invest? We are thankful and grateful for your heart for generosity and are excited about what God is going to do through you and Fresh Start Church.


There are people not only in our local communities but globally that long for security and stability. Some cannot even meet the basic needs of clean water and shelter from the elements. With your generous Christmas Offering Fresh Start Church is planning to provide over 300 water filters to the villages we partner with in Guatemala through Manna Worldwide. These are the same villages that we give $1800 a month to. Those funds feed hundreds of children and now we have the opportunity to give them clean water. The children in the feeding centers will also be receiving bath towels at the cost of $10 each. We hope to provide 300 bath towels as well. 

We have also forged a strong relationship with Atrium Apartments right here in Egg Harbor Township. The children there are in need of snow/rain boots and warm winter blankets.  What a wonderful expression of the warmth and protection of God’s love by committing to providing these items to our friends there.  


The people we are trying to reach each and every day are concerned for their families and what the future holds for them. We all know that Jesus is the answer and guiding force that can bring that type of security. Our Next Gen ministry at Fresh Start provides a safe place for our preschool, elementary, and student families to learn and grow in their faith. Your generosity towards this area will be used to enhance these areas. Currently we want to make sure that our check-in and drop off areas are in alignment with the excellence that is given to our students during their time with us. This will also allow for the space to be even more secure.

Our plans are to better utilize the deck at our check-in area to make it a place where parents and families can get out of the elements and feel comfortable dropping their kids off or picking them up without feeling uncomfortable and rushed. We plan to use this space for families to hang out and enjoy some time together before or after church. 


Our local special needs community is a big part of Fresh Start Church. We have had an opportunity to help make space for families by having the Champion’s Club Ministry at Fresh Start Church. This ministry allows our families to worship in the main sanctuary while their loved ones learn about God in a way that is relevant to them while in Champion’s Club. Each year we expand our reach to the special needs community and invite them to our annual Night to Shine, a place where we all belong and more specifically we get to honor our friends with special needs and their families.

The event is the Tim Tebow Night to Shine Prom. Our honored guests will be decked out for their experience as well as have a fully catered dinner with fun and music. We also plan to have horse and buggy rides, photo opportunities, goody bags, a red carpet for them to walk down and so much more. We will also host a party for their family members. This event has over 300 volunteers and serves close to 200 people. Be a part of helping us express God’s love to our special needs community through your generosity.
