LEADERSHIP & STAFF
OUR INTERIM PASTOR,
Reverend Kathy Genus
Rev. Kathy Genus has a love for God's people and unbridled energy for the Gospel. She is thrilled to serve as the Interim Pastor here in Jamesburg as we seek to hear how God is using our particular gifts in this place. Rev. Genus takes to heart the Great Commandment to Love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves and strives to live that out in her ministry and her life. In addition, her greatest joy is being a mother to two amazing humans and being called Grandma by her seven distinctly magnificent grandchildren.
The Session is comprised of elders elected by the congregation, who handle all aspects of the mission and government of the church. Its diverse responsibilities encompass all church organizations. The work of the Session is carried out through its committees for the areas of: Buildings and Grounds, Christian Education, Administration and Finance, Worship, Outreach, and Events.
While all Christians are called to care for persons in need, the ministry of deacons is the light that guides the way. Deacons are nominated and ordained church members who are truly a reflection of the heart of Christianity.
Our deacons provide food for approximately 80 families a month through the Deacon's Food Cupboard. They visit and bring flowers to those who are sick and send the church bulletin to homebound congregation members. Twice a year, our deacons provide school supplies for elementary school students and candy bags for Halloween and Easter. Working with St. James Church's members, they provide gifts for Christmas to local children in need.
Anyone wanting to donate time, money or items please call (732) 521-1711.
THE PRESBYTERIAN MEN'S COUNCIL
The Presbyterian Men's Council (PMC) is a social organization whose goal is to provide Christian fellowship and service to the Church. Dinner meetings with a delicious meal, a devotion and Christian fellowship are held monthly to plan events.
Our Men's Council's annual agenda includes the St. Pat's Day Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner, Lunch and Egg Hunt with the Easter Bunny, Mother's Day Ham Dinner, the Church Chicken BBQ and Lunch with Santa. They provide their famous "meatball subs" and "dirty water dogs" for sale at our annual Church Fair and Car Show and they host receptions in our Fellowship Hall for events such as our Gospel Concert. PMC purchases supplies for the kitchen pantry and restroom facilities, and most recently donated toward the purchase of a new commercial freezer for our kitchen.
The Presbyterian Men's Council welcomes new members and greatly appreciates all support given to continue and grow in service to the Church.
