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 Chapel, which is adjacent to the main sanctuary. The entrance is on Broad Street across from Bloomfield High School. Ample parking is available in the Board of Education lot on the corner of Broad St. and Belleville Ave. The service begins at 10:45AM. All are welcome.

ACTION AGAINST HUNGER Food Drive, Sunday Oct 4, 2015
In spite of threatening weather our BPGOG Food Pantry again participated in the annual, MEND, North Jersey Media Group Foundation Fundraiser. Our Food Pantry Volunteers handed flyers to customers as they entered the Stop & Shop on Franklin Street in Bloomfield from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM. Although somewhat windy, the threatening weather did not discourage the shoppers as they contributed 650 lbs. of nonperishable food items and $143.81 in cash contributions. By mid-afternoon the overcast clouds gave way to partially sunny conditions, but the wind still prevailed. As the store has two entrances/exits, this year we shared the site with The First Hopewell Baptist Church in Newark. .
