BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Brookdale Reformed Church on Bellevue Avenue invites the community to gather with friends for 'Pasta with a Side of Christmas Carols' this Saturday afternoon starting at 4 p.m. and continuing into the evening 

This Saturday's gathering is a part of a series of food-centric events at the church that, according to Rev. Susan Dorward are "breaking down walls, and then, using the rubble to build bridges to bring the community together."  Food is a great motivator in bringing people together who otherwise may not cross paths. So far this year, the church hosted an Asian Fusion event and a Caribbean event that each celebrated the diversity of the congregation. 

Saturday's event is free. It begins with Christmas Carols at 4 p.m. and continues with Pasta Dinner at 5 p.m. It is free! 

Brookdale Reformed Church is at 16 Bellevue Ave in Bloomfield NJ. That's near the Brookdale Park roadway entrance nearest the ShopRite. 973-338-7676.
