Welcome One and All

The Church on the Green opens our doors to all. We aspire to be a church that feels "like home" for a first time visitor, but that offers a lifetime of opportunities to grow in faith and service. We welcome seekers and lifelong Christians, single and married people, families of all configurations and children of all ages, dyed-in-the-wool Presbyterians and those who aren't even sure how to spell P-r-e-s-b-y-t-e-r-i-a-n but want to know Christ. We are united in our desire for an authentic faith expressed in acts of compassion and service. Could we be the church you've been looking for?

While our sanctuary is closed for renovations, we worship in our historic Parish House. Ample parking is available in the Board of Education lot on the corner of Broad St. and Belleville Av. Service begins at 10:45AM. All are welcome.
