On March 7, 2008 Lavern Depeine awoke with the idea that an incredible difference can be made in the lives of others, when a few people wholeheartedly collaborate, using their talents and resources to make a big impact on the lives of others. Inspired by 2 Corinthians 5: 14-21 and Christ's love, Lavern invited eleven other women in the Central Jersey Church of Christ to form the TGIF group to serve others.
The Core Values:
God and Family First
Willingness to resolve conflict as in Matt 18
Willingness to suggest someone else if you are no longer able to serve in the group.
To love, encourage and inspire each other in friendships
Look for needs to be met
Make dreams come true
Serve families in our church
Serve families in our communities
Engage in monthly projects
Current Group Members
Leslie Baier, Egondu Brant, Sylvia Bridges, Ana Cordero-Banks, , Henrietta Dwumahene, Namir Laureano, Andrea Moyer, Melissa Perry, Marlene Petrovsky, Andi Rincon, Maria Stefanelli and Lavern Depeine
Note of Thanks
Thanks to all the women who have served within the TGIF group over the past few years. Every small deed pooled together makes greater impact for God.
