Swenson - The Westfield Leader

The Westfield Leader and The Scotch Plains – Fanwood TIMES
Kingdom Life Cathedral Sets
Inaugural Service Sunday
Brooks is a native of Scotch Plains,
where he graduated from Scotch
Plains-Fanwood High School. He
and his wife, Lady Shonda R.
Brooks, knew that after years of
doing ministry outside of Scotch
Plains that they were not only
called to birth a church in this
community but that it would be no
easy feat.
Bishop-Elect Brooks, a member
of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood
Ministerium, who has been one of
the featured homilists the last two
years at the annual Scotch PlainsFanwood Interfaith Community
Thanksgiving Service, cited some
of the challenges to starting a new
church in Scotch Plains as, “...a lack
of available property, the presence
of other outstanding and established
houses of worship, not to mention
the struggle to convince people to
take a chance on something new...”
“We’re just excited to be establishing something that is genuine,
relational, multi-cultural and relevant in this great community we
live in,” added Shonda Brooks.
Kingdom Life Cathedral is an
independent, non-denominational
congregation in the reformed convergence tradition; it is liturgical,
evangelical and charismatic. Its
motto and focus is “Real People.
Real Purpose. Real Progress.”
Lady Shonda and Bishop-Elect Kelvin Brooks

Rake and Hoe Helps Ring
In the Holidays at Jardine
WESTFIELD — As part of their
service commitment to the Westfield
community and Union County,
members of the Rake and Hoe Garden Club of Westfield decorated
the holiday tree at the Jardine Academy of the Cerebral Palsy League
in Cranford on December 9. Members created ornaments, one for each
student, themed to match their book
donation. This year’s book selection and ornament design was about
an elephant named Elmer who decides that being different was a very
good thing.
The Jardine Academy is approved
by the New Jersey Department of
Education and maintains Middle
States Accreditation. The Academy
provides a comprehensive educational program designed to meet the
cognitive and physical needs of children who have multiple disabilities
— needs that may not be fully met
within the local school system. The
Cerebral Palsy League operates a
new, state-of-the-art facility in
Cranford for students ages 3 to 21.
The Rake and Hoe Garden Club
of Westfield has a long-term reputation for its service to the community and donations to worthy causes

SCOTCH PLAINS — Kingdom
Life Cathedral will begin new Sunday worship services in the new
year, taking its ministry work to
the next level.
This non-denominational, Christian church began in January of
2012, hosting its weekly Bible
Study “The Gathering” in a small
classroom at St. John’s Baptist
Church in Scotch Plains, where the
Reverend Dr. Kelmo C. Porter is
pastor. In May of 2014, after a brief
restructuring, the ministry found a
new home at the First United Methodist Church of Scotch Plains,
where the Reverend Dr. Carletta
Aston is pastor, and where the ministry has continued to host “The
Gathering” Bible Study on Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
In what Bishop-Elect Kelvin C.
Brooks, senior pastor, believes is
the next step to establishing the
presence and identity of the church
in the community, Kingdom Life
Cathedral is preparing to launch
its Sunday worship services on
January 11, at 1 p.m., at its new
location, the First United Methodist Church, 1171 Terrill Road,
Scotch Plains.
This Inaugural Sunday Service
Celebration will include singing, a
sermon and a light reception following the service. Bishop-Elect
