On April 9th 2017 we celebrated Community Service Day at Newburgh Tabernacle SDA in Newburgh New York.The officers and assistant of the church came together and show their support to the Community Service department’s effort to reach out to the citizens of the City of Newburgh. The Community Service department is lead by Sister Clover Jones. The Local Civil services departments of the city of Newburgh were invited to the event. The local fire department came with a crew and a fire engine to show their support in reaching out to the citizens of Newburgh.
One of our youngest Community Service volunteers Rebecca Louissaint got very excited when she received an up close view inside of the fire engine as she hang out with the fire men.
We thank our good friend Mayor Judy Kennedy for coming, Although she was on her way for medical treatment due to an illness, she passed by the church to show support for the event, she said “I love to go to these kinds of events”. Our pastor David Cuke, our head elder Terrence Osborne, the members of the church, the next door neighbors, and those who came to the event prayed together with Mayor Judy Kennedy that God may restore her back to good health

Welcome to our Community
We thank the great and mighty God who has allowed us to serve the people in our community. Who regards not person, nor takes a reward: and to Him be the glory: who doth execute the judgment of the fatherless, and widow, and loves the stranger, in giving him food and raiment
inspired by Deut. 10:17-18
