Ventnor Community Church

The Ventnor Community Church will kick off its 100th anniversary celebration with a community barbecue fundraiser Sunday, Aug. 14 at 2 S. Victoria Ave. The celebration is open to the public and will feature a 10 a.m. church service and an old-fashioned barbecue with tasty chicken and ribs served up 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Funds raised will support repairs to the historic church which was severely damaged in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. The church was not eligible for any Sandy relief funds and has been in the process of getting major repairs done over the past 10 years, but much more still needs to be done. In addition to the repairs, the entire church needs to become ADA compliant.  

The church aims to raise $50,000 for repairs to the building. Donations may be made to repair this historic community institution at its Go Fund Me page:

The nondenominational Ventnor Community Church, founded on Nov. 22, 1922, relies on donations to further its long standing mission of community leadership and spiritual guidance in Christian worship within its historic walls. 

The Ventnor Community Church is affiliated with Waters Edge of South Jersey, led by Pastor Dean Bult, which serves as “The Church for the Unchurched.” Waters Edge’s mission is to lead people, who wish to practice spiritually but do not fully identify with the Christian faith, into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
