About Us Adult Opportunities In The News FAQ 25 Days of Agape

What is Agape?

Agape is a Greek word that means love, but not just any love – God’s love. Agape is God’s unconditional love for the world. At Agape each week we serve others who are food insecure as an expression of God’s love. Every week we open the doors of 1st Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth and welcome people into a space where they can enjoy a hearty meal in a loving environment.

Something that makes the Agape Community Kitchen unique is that we are a youth- led mission of The Presbyterian Church in Westfield. We believe it is important to give young people meaningful ways to be in leadership roles through our church. With the support of a team of awesome adults, it is the students who are leading our meal service in Elizabeth each week. We value young people, and believe God does too!  You don’t have to be Presbyterian to serve with us, you don’t even have to be Christian, you just have to be willing to show up and show your respect to the community to be a part of Agape.

When & Where:

Every Wednesday @ 3:15pm in The Presbyterian Church in Westfield (PCW) Parking Lot. Transportation is provided to and from Elizabeth. We usually return around 7:30pm.
