Clair Memorial United Methodist Church (CMUMC) has been a beacon of hope for the City of Jersey City residents for nearly 80 years. We strive to be more than a Sunday morning church but a hub that provides resources for residents in our city. Under the leadership of our current pastor, Reverend Dawrell Rich, CMUMC is not only preserving the cultural and spiritual heritage of the community in Jersey City but expanding our footprint to address social and environmental justice issues.
We are requesting financial support for a historic African-American congregation that is still a cornerstone in the community. With your assistance we will raise $120,000 by December 31, 2025 for repairs to the roof, foundation, and tower, as well as restoration work to maintain the architectural integrity of the building. Our objective is to restore the church building and enhance its resilience to protect this vital piece of African-American heritage.
Your financial support would make a significant difference in preserving this historic African-American congregation, allowing it to continue serving the community, promoting cultural awareness, and providing a place of worship for future generations.
