Also, New Jersey’s own Libby Prison Minstrels are scheduled to perform at this event. L.P.M. are a group of musicians dedicated to history and education through music. They have entertained audiences since the early 1990’s with programs that include music of the Union and Confederacy, stories of the Civil War period, humor, and the remarkable history of the prisoners held in Libby Prison during the Civil War. In addition to their C.W. presentation, L.P.M. share the life of 19th Century sailors through traditional Sea Shanty songs.
125 Years of Faithful Service
DeBows had its beginnings in 1867. It was then known as the DeBows Methodist Episcopal Sabbath School. Christian education classes and worship were held in a small schoolhouse near the site of the present church building.
In May of 1896, DeBows was incorporated and officially became a Methodist Episcopal Church. Land was purchased at the current location and a new church building was erected.

Updated COVID-19 Guidelines
COVID-19 guidelines per the CDC & State of NJ still recommend the wearing of face masks for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in indoor settings, especially when in close proximity to other people and social distancing cannot be observed. We wish to err on the side of caution and ask that you use your best judgement. A healthy congregation is our goal so we can continue to worship together.
If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, such as running a fever or coughing, or just have what you think might be a common cold, we ask that you please stay home and take care of yourself.
Unvaccinated people should wear a mask and observe the 6 foot social distancing guidelines.
