Call for Bible Study Group
I am looking to form a spiritually based women’s
group that will be modeled after the program developed
by Lisa Brenninkmeyer called Walking With A
Purpose. The mission of Walking With A Purpose
is to transform the hearts and lives of women by
providing Bible studies that enable women to know
Christ through Scripture and the teachings of the
Roman Catholic Church.
I would like to form a
small group 6 to 10 woman - perhaps between the
ages of 40 & 65 in my East Brunswick office. Depending
upon the response, the group could be in
the morning, afternoon or evening. Initially, I would
like to start with the series Fearless and
Free which meets for 6 weeks in succession.
Although there would be no cost for the program,
each woman would need to purchase the
book that corresponds with the study.
of the study as well as the opportunity to purchase
the book can be found at www.walkingwithpurpose.com under the heading
Bible Study and then Adult Women. If interested
in the group and to find out additional information,
please email me at email@example.com or

Remember the Magic of Prom?
Together, let’s help someone else’s Prom/Semi-Formal dream come true! Do you have a prom dress, semi-formal dress, or boy’s formal wear hanging in the closet?
The East Brunswick Education Association has made it possible for those who would have trouble obtaining formal wear to be able to see their dream become a reality. Your donated dress, formal wear, and accessories will be made available for an East Brunswick Senior to select for their magical night at this year’s Prom - or available for a Churchill Junior High School Freshman to wear to their Semi-Formal.
To make things as easy as possible to participate, Deacon John Broehl will gladly arrange for your formal wear donation to be picked up directly from your home. Your donation will be organized and prepared so that it will be available to East Brunswick students.
That night you or your child spent at Prom/Semi-Formal capped off a period of their life with a magical evening of excitement, friends, laughter and dancing…
Help other’s experience the same magic that you and/or your child have…
Call 732-214-0953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pickup.
Here’s the making the lives of our youth… magical.
