25 Days of Agape
December 1-25, 2018

This Holiday Season give a gift that gives back. Instead of spending hours at the mall or online looking for gifts for your loved ones make a contribution to the Agape Community Kitchen in their name.  With each gift donated, you will receive a Holiday Greeting Card to give the recipients of your gift. For gifts donated online you can download a PDF of the greeting card and print it at home. In addition, gifts can be purchased in the Church Office from Linnette Cierpial, who can provide you with a pre-printed greeting card.

Help us spread God’s love this Holiday Season by purchasing a gift during the 25 Days of Agape!


About Us Adult OpportunitiesIn The NewsFAQGive


What is Agape?

Agape is a Greek word that means love, but not just any love – God’s love. Agape is God’s unconditional love for the world. At Agape each week we serve others who are food insecure as an expression of God’s love. Every week we open the doors of 1st Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth and welcome people into a space where they can enjoy a hearty meal in a loving environment.

Something that makes the Agape Community Kitchen unique is that we are a youth- led mission of The Presbyterian Church in Westfield. We believe it is important to give young people meaningful ways to be in leadership roles through our church. With the support of a team of awesome adults, it is the students who are leading our meal service in Elizabeth each week. We value young people, and believe God does too!  You don’t have to be Presbyterian to serve with us, you don’t even have to be Christian, you just have to be willing to show up and show your respect to the community to be a part of Agape.

When & Where:

Every Wednesday @ 3:15pm in The Presbyterian Church in Westfield (PCW) Parking Lot. Transportation is provided to and from Elizabeth. We usually return around 7:30pm.
