A=On the point between State and Academy Streets, this park features the bell that was in the steeple of the “old” church. Memorial/commemorative pavers line the path in the garden. Visitors are welcome to visit and spend time in reflection and/or prayer.

Q=How is the Methodist church structured organizationally?
A= Glassboro is one of almost 90 churches in the area known as the Delaware Bay District. There are 9 districts in the state of New Jersey known as the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference. This conference is part of the Northeastern Jurisdication which is one of 4 areas which make up the United Methodist Church (www.umc.org). Because of this connectional relationship, resources and outreach have a stronger impact than an individual church. The pastor of each church is appointed by the Bishop of the Conference.

Q=How do I join Glassboro Methodist?
A=If you are considering membership, the first step is to contact Pastor John where you’ll learn more about the church, get to know our pastor and staff, and review expectations regarding membership.
