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 by Pastor Ruth Boling and assisted by Adult, Family, and Bell choirs.

MONDAY EVENING BOOK GROUP
Our Monday evening book group will meet again on Monday, January 14. We will meet at 7:30 P.M. in the church parlor. We meet every second Monday of the month until June. Throughout this year, we will be reading A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and his Prayers by D.A. Carson. The wonderful book examines some of Paul's prayers in his Epistles and gleans from them practical advice for improving our prayer life. It is a great book that has much to offer both our minds and our hearts. At our January meeting we will discuss chapter 5. Everybody is welcome! For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please contact Glenn Maciag at (973) 748-5117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUNDAY MORNING EDUCATION PROGRAM
Our Sunday morning education program continues under the leadership of Bruce Arlett, Heather Arlett-Doherty, and Glenn Maciag. We continue to read and discuss James Boice's book Foundations of the Christian Faith. We 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. During January, we will be talking, among other things, about law and gospel, and the person and work of Christ. For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please contact Glenn Maciag at (973) 748-5117 or email email@example.com It is practical, relevant, and approachable.
