The River Church of New Jersey – Mercy Ministry Mission Statement
The River Church Mercy Ministry is dedicated to supporting non-profit organizations and families in the Bergen County and Northern New Jersey regions. RCMM provides support in the form of monetary donations, physical and intellectual manpower as well as spiritual support. RCMM aims to build Christ – centered relationships with these people and organizations. With these different forms of support, it is our hope that God’s eternal love will shine through in our actions and donations. RCMM will have a focus on local organizations and families that are under funded and smaller in scale.
