You are cordially invited to participate in the worship, life and ministry of our congregation.

We are both the oldest and the youngest Presbyterian church in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The church building in which we worship was begun in 1797 and served as the home of the First Presbyterian Church of Bloomfield until 1966. In that year, our church family was born when four Bloomfield congregations, including "Old First", Westminster Presbyterian Church, Park Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Ampere Community Church, merged to form the present Church on the Green. Our congregation is a member of the Newark Presbytery and is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Bloomfield Presbyterian Church At Worship

The most basic form of Christian service is the communal worship of God. Our mission is to worship God with enthusiasm, power and praise through the ministry of Word and Sacrament, the ministry of music, and through our common ministry of prayer and praise.

We gather for Worship every Sunday at 10:45 AM. Other services of worship are held on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunrise and other days of significance on the Liturgical calendar. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated monthly. Child care is available during worship.

Music plays an integral part in the worship life of The Bloomfield Presbyterian Church. The worshiping congregation is led and assisted by Adult, Family, and Bell choirs.

Thank You, Elder Bruce Arlett Sr.!!!

As the congregation prepares for the coming of a new pastor, it took time on Sunday, November 18 to thank Elder Bruce Arlett, Sr. for his worship leadership during the past eight months. The worship service was a time of praise and thanksgiving to God for His many blessings. In his sermon, Bruce reminded the congregation that we are called to be faithful, and we are called to be family - to reach out to another in love, to apologize and to forgive one another where there is need, to speak words of hope and kindness. Following the worship service, there was a luncheon to honor Bruce for his faithful witness. The church family enjoyed this time of good food, warm fellowship and the opportunity to personally greet and thank Bruce. We look forward, in faith, to the future as the Rev. Ruth Boling begins her ministry with and among us..... Clerk of Session: Ethelyn Fulton

SUNDAY MORNING ADULT EDUCATION

Our Sunday morning education program continues under the leadership of Bruce Arlett, Heather Arlett-Doherty, and Glenn Maciag. Whether you are an experienced Christian or a newer Christian, if you find that you sometimes have questions about what we believe and why we believe it, this is the program for you!! We continue to read and discuss James Boice's book Foundations of the Christian Faith. We will meet in the church parlor in the education building each Sunday morning from 9:45 A.M. to 10:30 A.M. Each chapter in Boice's book began life as a sermon, so it is not a dry textbook on theology. It is practical, relevant, and approachable. You are invited to attend even if you can only attend occasionally. For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please call the church office at (973) 743-1796 or e-mail info@bpcog.org.
