donated food
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Christmas food baskets this year.  

Thank you as well to our "turkey benefactor" who provides our turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and to Foodtown in Red Bank who generously donated a gift card to help fill our food bags.  

We will continue to collect non-perishable food items benefiting local churches, in particular, soup, peanut butter and jelly and coffee or tea.

Thanks again,

    Meals for Lunch Break

    posted Oct 11, 2017, 1:18 PM by The Church of the Nativity

    We invite all Parishioners to come together as Nativity prepares and serves a Monthly Dinner at Lunch Break in Red Bank 

    Feed the Body, Nourish the Soul

    Join us as our parishioners cook and serve dinner the 3rd Friday of every month to approximately 150 people at Lunch Break in Red Bank.


    • COOKING: Every 3rd Thursday of the month we will meet in the Nativity Parish Hall to prep and cook from 8:30-10:30AM. 

    • SERVING: Every 3rd Friday we will be in need of volunteers to meet at Lunch Break from 5pm-7:30pm to serve and/or clean up. 

    This is an ONGOING, monthly Community Outreach Ministry, so the more volunteers involved the less of a commitment each person will have to make. No cooking or serving experience necessary! 


    Any questions, please contact one of the ministry chairs: Kathy Ramirez (Kramirez123@gmail.com )  
    Linda Gesell (732-758-8012) or (LHD121@hotmail.com), Mary Haynes (MMHaynes@comcast.net)
