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.

'We Worship Together' was the theme of Family Palooza on July 23. After worship we played water balloon games, enjoyed a picnic lunch on the manse back porch, and then returned to the Chapel for worship education. We learned about using musical instruments (including our voices) to praise God and Mr. Tim gave a demonstration on the church organ. Everyone had a chance to try “preaching” from the pulpit, sharing their interpretation of Psalm 23 while wearing kid-sized stoles specially made for the event. Thanks to all who made the day both fun and interesting!

February 25 was 'FoodaPalooza!' Our theme was 'God is great, God is good, let us thank God for our food.' From Bible stories about Joseph, Moses and Jesus we learned how God provides for Gods people. We tasted food from Bible times and made a lunch of foods that reminded us of the stories, including FISH pizza. The program included crafts, singing, teaching, and a visit to our Food Pantry. Thanks to all who helped!

The Sunday morning adult education series "The Geography of God" led by Pastor Ruth continues on Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 10:30 until March 12. On March 19, we will begin a new series, led by Glenn Maciag, using a short (85 page) book by Petrus Dathenus called "The Pearl of Christian Comfort". Petrus Dathenus (1531 or 1532-1588) was an early Dutch reformer sometimes called "The John Knox of the Netherlands". “The Pearl of Christian Comfort” was written by Dathenus to provide spiritual comfort and assurance to Christians struggling in those areas. It is written in the form of a dialogue between Dathenus and a younger Christian. Because the book was not translated into English until the 1990s, the English is modern and readable. Interested? Want to get a copy of the book? Please talk to Glenn Maciag. .


The Christmas Pageant, "Something for Children to Do, remembering William Batchelder Bradbury, 1816-1868," was presented during worship on Sunday, December 18, 2016. The children and adults performed together beautifully, helping us all to enter the spirit of the season.
