Q=What is the Bell Park?
A=On the point between State and Academy Streets, this park features the bell that was in the steeple of the “old” church. Memorial/commemorative pavers line the path in the garden. Visitors are welcome to visit and spend time in reflection and/or prayer.
Q=How is the Methodist church structured organizationally?
A= Glassboro is one of almost 90 churches in the area known as the Delaware Bay District. There are 9 districts in the state of New Jersey known as the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference. This conference is part of the Northeastern Jurisdiction which is one of 4 areas which make up the United Methodist Church (www.umc.org). Because of this connectional relationship, resources and outreach have a stronger impact than an individual church. The pastor of each church is appointed by the Bishop of the Conference.
