Celebrating 35 Years A look at what God is doing in and through fellowship

This is a special time for us to celebrate the 35 years God has given us as a church family. Naturally there will be a lot of reminiscing (maybe even joking about the clothing styles and hair colors 35 years ago), but it is also an opportunity to look at what God is doing amongst us today. So take a minute and scroll through the images, text and videos that give a small taste of how we are being called and used as a church body right now!

Sunday morning is what many people associate with church, but the reach goes so much further!

Children's Ministries

VBS... so many kids!

Each year hundreds of children from our church and the surrounding neighborhoods attend our VBS. Every year there is a different theme, and the building gets decked out as an island adventure, old west town, or wilderness experience, and who knows what's next? (Space, the final frontier?)

But the week is not just a fun theme, it is filled with Bible stories, memory verses, catchy songs, games, crafts, snacks and so much excitement; all performed and contained with enthusiasm by our youth and adult volunteer leaders. We know the seeds of truth planted in this week can have a lasting effect on the kids and their families.

Youth Ministries

Oh, the places you'll go...

Throughout the year there are regular youth group meetings once a week that focus on building real and lasting relationships that help students learn what it means to be a follower of Christ. As a part of that growing experience, there are lots of opportunities to serve in ministry both locally and abroad. Over the years we have sent youth teams to France, Poland, Niger, Quebec, Brazil, Kentucky, Maryland, Philly and Trenton to serve the ministry efforts happening there and help spread the good news.

Staying Active

The annual Salao Soccer league has been running for many years, and continues to be an effective way for us to engage with our local community.

Summer Camps

Crazy Fun!


Learning Together as Families

Sometimes it's in a classroom doing a Bible study together, and other times it's on a camping trip, circled around the fire. Either way it's an opportunity to be learning together and building up one another in the context of our families.

Reaching Out

We believe it is not our purpose to be focused inward, but to be reaching out into the community and world around us. We have many ministries that make that a key part of their ministry, but perhaps none so much as our Mt. Laurel Living Nativity. Each year hundreds of cast members volunteer thousands of hours (and 10's of thousands of cookies) to put on our 13 scene, outdoor, living nativity which brings to life not just the Christmas story, but how it fits in to God's bigger story. Each year we host thousands of people from near and far, and it is always encouraging to hear the number of people who visit for the first time and had never really known the full story before.

Pastor Mark

While Mark would be the first to point out that the ministries and successes of Fellowship have been a work of God, it seems appropriate for us, the church body, to express our appreciation for his many years of service and leadership. 35 years ago, Mark and Marian felt God's call to this community, and we are direct recipients of the blessing that has been poured out. If you haven't already, please feel free to click on the link below to send a note of encouragement and appreciation to Mark and Marian.

Happy 35th Anniversary, To God be the Glory!
