Outreach: Transforming The World Through Mission and Service

Jesus came that we might have life and have it abundantly. Yet many in his world and our world lack those things they need for abundant life. We respond to the needs of the world by seeking to live a life of love for our neighbor. Our mission is especially focused on children, hunger, and healing, and we encourage all who are part of our community to use their gifts to help transform the lives of others.

Food Pantry, and Christmas Toys For Children

St Nicholas offers an evening food pantry twice a month on the first and third Wednesday, to fit the schedules of working people who can’t take time off to visit other area food pantries.

At Christmas time, we collect unwrapped toys to benefit a local immigrant services charity that has a children’s program. Click here to see how you might be able to help by volunteering or donating non-perishable food items and personal hygiene and cleaning supplies.

Healing Ministry: The Order of St Luke


The Order of St Luke is very active at St Nicholas! We offer a healing ministry on the third Sunday of the month, and will soon be offering a Eucharist with Healing at Asbury Park retirement community. There is no expectation of miraculous cures, just the warm and caring touch of a friend who asks quietly what sort of healing is needed, and offers to pray with you and offer their understanding and support. For more information, contact Jennifer Brundidge.

AA/GA Support Groups

St Nicholas is proud to host AA and GA support groups. Click here for more information, and check the calendar for the current schedule. There are daily meetings of AA, while GA and Al-Anon meet on a weekly basis.
