SGSS Coptic Center | Time to Build!

This time last year we started sharing details with you regarding our Coptic Center as we were preparing to break ground. Through your continued love and support, we are happy to update you that we have started site work and laying the foundation for the buildings! 

We invite you to be a part in growing our community for the next 45+ years and investing in the future of our youth by SIGNING UP FOR A RECURRING GIFT to the St. George & St. Shenouda Coptic Center project through the link below!

The target goal is to increase our monthly recurring contributions in order to safely secure continuous construction of the buildings with the intention of raising a total of $12M.

This has been a dream, a vision, and a plan that we have been working towards over many years. It is more than bricks and buildings…It is a foundation for the future of our youth…a means to serve those in need in an underdeveloped area of Jersey City a portal to bring communities together… Many have either been touched by the services of St. George & St. Shenouda or deeply a part of the church’s 45 year history. We now invite you to take the blessings of supporting this important initiative that will continue to support many. 

AND we are excited to invite you to save the date for our OFFICIAL GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY planned for December 14 (weather permitting) with our special honored guests His Grace Bishop David and Honorable Mayor Steven Fulop, among many others who were an important part of this vision!

We know that this target is in clear sight through God’s grace, your love, and shared support!

SGSS Coptic Center

SGSS church has been a pillar in the community of JC for 45 years, and has been and still continues to be a starting point for many Copts when they first come to the US. As we have grown beyond Jersey City, so have the services. The Coptic Community of Jersey City is the densest population of Egyptian Christians per capita outside of Egypt. With 8 fixed weekly liturgies (4 on Sunday alone), 9 routine meetings catering to both English and Arabic native speakers, Sunday School and Bible Studies, multiple support services including (but not limited to) tutoring and SAT prep, vocational training, ESL classes, computer skills classes, services for those with special needs & the elderly, women’s support meeting, newcomer orientation, health & hygiene education, summer day camp, etc. We have grown into 4 generations of diverse families and have spent many years planning and gaining the support of Jersey City to finally announce that we will be ready to break ground on the St. George & St. Shenouda Coptic Center this Spring 2019!
The target goal is to raise approximately $10M for construction of the buildings. Through your love and support over all these years we have already completed several key milestones and been able to pay the fees associated with each, such as: land purchases, planning & zoning board approvals, architectural engineering & design. Through your donations we also have enough to break ground and complete laying of the foundation for all three buildings.
The COPTIC COMMUNITY CENTER (or Coptic Center) in Jersey City consists of 3 buildings to fulfill the goals and the needs of the service for the congregation and future growth of our children – 1. a main building with the church and multipurpose hall, 2. a services building with classrooms, and 3. a gymnasium with regulation full-size basketball & volleyball courts and small theater for performing arts. This Coptic Community Center is certainly more than bricks and much more than a church structure.
It is a means to bring communities together and to develop & raise the standard and quality of life in an underdeveloped area in Jersey City through the social services that the Center can support. The Coptic Community Center is a foundation for the future of our youth and solidifies our presence as integral community in Jersey City. The prospects are exciting! Please be a part of this important initiative by donating this Giving Tuesday and beyond! We know that we can reach our target through your love and shared support!
