ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- A new house of worship will open its doors next month to new parishioners, according to church leaders.
Live Well Church of Windsor will hold its inaugural public worship service on Sunday August 4th, 2019 at its new location on 51 Church Street. The doors will open at 3:00 p.m. and all are welcome.
Reverend Kahlil Carmichael says the focus of the church will be to serve the community and teach people the truth about Christ.
"We are a community focused church and we want the Windsor and surrounding areas to know that we have been commissioned to help all people live whole, live well, and live free through the restorative and relational God," Reverend Carmichael said. “We are so thankful for the warm welcome we have received from our neighbors and new friends of Windsor."
Carmichael said that the church is inter-denominational by choice, Baptist by faith and sanctified by God. "I'm not bound by any one denomination, but I respect all denominations.”
"We have people of various faith backgrounds currently in our church family, in fact, we have a retired Presbyterian minister on staff. When we say all are welcome, we mean it!"
The Reverend is aware of the declining numbers of people who attend church services, but he says, don't give up on church. "Church was given to the world to serve the community and to help those who need to find a safe place to be their authentic selves and grow spiritually. I believe Live Well Church is that place."
Pastor Carmichael also serves as a Hospice Chaplain as part of the Religious Ministries department at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center. His compassionate care and counseling for all regardless of background is one of the aspects of his ministry that sets it apart from others.
Besides worship services, Live Well Church of Windsor will also provide free workouts on Thursday nights at the on-site fitness center; free healthy community breakfasts every last Sunday of each month; a youth ministry to help children thrive at home and in school; Pastoral care and counseling; and support for active adults 55 and over.
Live Well Church was previously located in Somerset and is now housed at the historic United Methodist Church which was built in the 1800's. More information about the church can be found at livewellchurch.org.
