We’re there to offer support during the most trying times for one good reason… We Care About You!


Bereavement: Rev. Teresa Focarile (732) 727-9500

We’re available to our FFM family at the most sensitive time in their lives: the loss of a loved one. We’re there to console, comfort, assist in making arrangements, and in whatever way we can to help you through this difficult time. Please contact us as soon as you possibly can so we can be with you through the entire process.


Benevolence: Joe Balina – 1903

When basic necessities are absent or in short supply, we are ready to administer grace and assistance in a number of ways, including the following:

Daily Bread Food Pantry

Financial Assistance

Disaster Relief

Clothing Ministry

Community Service (FFM is a New Jersey state approved Community Service Site)


Visitation: Joe Balina – 1903

When any of our members or their families are hospitalized, in a nursing home, or other shut-in situation, our Visitation Team can send someone to pray with them and bring comfort to them. Upon receiving a request from a person in need, or their immediate family, a trained team member located in their area is dispatched as quickly as possible to minister to them.


Conflict Resolution: Rev. Joe Balina x1903

Interpersonal conflicts are often too difficult to resolve on our own, so it’s great to know there is help available. Our highly-trained and qualified counselors offer sound Biblical advice to help you successfully plan and carry out a strategy for victory, even in the most difficult situations.


Prison Ministry: Rev. Mary Leonard x4292

Those with family members who are incarcerated take comfort in knowing that our Prison Ministry reaches out with the same life-changing word that inspires all of us here at FFM. You can also be part of the team that writes letters and offers hope to those who often feel  hopeless.


Substance Abuse and Addiction: Joe Balina – 1903

The needs of our congregation cover a wide spectrum of issues, and we are dedicated to addressing as many of them as possible, including substance abuse and other dependencies. We have certified pastoral counselors on staff ready to assist individuals and families in finding the best treatment possible, as well as guide and support them during the challenging initial stages of recovery.

FFM is affiliated with several Christ-centered, long term residential rehab/discipleship programs such as Teen Challenge (adult).


Our Pastoral Care Department addresses a variety of other needs not specifically addressed here. Please call us to inquire about your situation.
