Plant a seed, nurture it, and it will grow

A chance meeting, listening to the will of God, sowing the seed of an idea, nurturing, and growing it. 

Our History


Early in 2010 while visiting family in Milford Connecticut Tom Ely, a member of Pluckemin Church,  was introduced  to a member of  the First United Church of Christ. During their conversation he learned  of the Emma Davis Medical Equipment Ministry  That was it, the seed was planted.  Upon returning home Tom floated the idea to another member of Pluckemin Church, Dave Hayward. Immediately, a trip was planned for an information gathering session with the leaders of the Emma  Davis Medical Equipment Ministry. Excited with the prospects of beginning a similar ministry at Pluckemin Church they put together an action plan and presented it to our Session (the leaders of the church) for approval.  The Session approved their plan and the Pluckemin Medical Equipment Ministry opened in June of 2010 with an announcement calling for medical equipment donations and volunteers in the church's monthly newsletter, The Pluckemin News. Soon after their first donation was received, a wheelchair, which was donated out to an individual in need the same day.

A quiet heart, listened to the call of God and planted the seed at Pluckemin Church, It was nurtured by volunteers, cultivated in the community, and has grown exponentially. Growing from a few hundred calls per year to over 3500 calls in 2021, the Pluckemin Medical Equipment Ministry is known all over New Jersey and been able to touch countless lives. We are grateful to the support and partnership with Pluckemin Church . It is not hard to see God working in this Church and in this Ministry.
