C.A.F.E. para el Alma
Presbytery: New Brunswick
$15,000
C.A.F.E. para el Alma is an emerging gospel community whose Spanish acronym stands for Comunion, Amor, Fe, Esperanza (Communion, Love, Faith, Hope), the four components of the basic structure of Christian life. This EGC serves the diverse Spanish-speaking community in the Trenton, NJ area who struggle to belong and face many challenges.

Martin Luther King Jr. Community Presbyterian Church
Presbytery: Southern New England
$20,000 (Year 2)
The EGC grant to MLK Jr. Community Presbyterian Church supports the revitalization/restart of a historic Black congregation in Springfield, MA. After surviving for many years without regular pastoral leadership or support from the presbytery, this community is embarking on a new journey together, and with the presbytery, to explore the possibilities that lie under the surface for new vitality, new life, and new opportunities for service in the community.

Twenty Thirty Dream Hub
Presbytery: New York City
$19,280
A new endeavor of the First Presbyterian Church of Jamaica, Queens, the Twenty Thirty Dream Hub will be a center of 20-somethings and 30-somethings in the Southeast Queens area empowering each other to live out their God-given dreams and visions. Adulting is better when you adult together, so the 20/30 Dream Hub hosts “Adulting 101” workshops on topics such as financial literacy, small business development, setting goals, mental and physical wellness, and other essential life skills. The centerpiece will be a co-working space for young adult entrepreneurs and innovators making entrepreneurship more accessible in Jamaica & Southeast Queens.

Walking Together & Walking With Me
Presbytery: Northern New England
$12,000 (Year 2)
Recognizing that formalized support for grief arising from the death of a loved one is a significant but often overlooked need, and that the programs that do exist are often time-bounded while grief is a long-range and ongoing process, the Londonderry Presbyterian Church, through its pastor Karla Dias, felt called to form a ministry to provide ongoing support through community and care.
