ABOUT THE MAKER'S PLACE

Our Vision

Built in 1935, the Lower Trenton Bridge reads, “Trenton Makes. The World Takes.” The changing economic reality of the city often challenges that message. Our aspiration is to create a place where all people are empowered to be makers, and where all people experience the abundant life of God the Maker.

A while back, a handful of folks in central New Jersey started dreaming about “The Maker’s Place,” a multiethnic and economically diverse community in the city of Trenton, where all people can experience the wide welcome of God, and where United Methodists from across central New Jersey can live out God’s love in action.

The Maker's Place is a new initiative of the United Methodist Church of Greater New Jersey. The goal is to connect neighbors in Trenton with neighbors from central New Jersey, by opening a new neighborhood resource center that empowers poor and marginalized people in our capital city. Starting with initiatives centered around infants and families, and in partnership with four United Methodist churches in Trenton, we'll cultivate transformative relationships and help people build bridges out of poverty.
