Bible Study (John)
Children begin Sunday School by first attending worship with family.
Sunday worship services are broadcast on Glen Ridge Local Access television, Channel 36 on Mondays at 8pm and Tuesday mornings at 10:30am.
Come join us! We invite you and your family to be a part of our church fellowship. We are an active, family oriented church located at the corner of Ridgewood Avenue and Clark Street in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. We welcome you to particpate in all our church activities. Membership is not required!
Be a part of our Christian family!
We have something for everyone! We offer Christian education programs for children and youth, a confirmation program, Young People's Society, Christians In Action, scholarships and intergenerational events. Our mission and outreach, ministries, bible study and choir provide adults the opportunity to grow in their faith while serving the church and outside community.
Under the direction of Thomas Mustachio, the Glen Ridge Choral Society will perform Gian Carlo Menotti's Missa 'O Pulchritudo' as well as choral & vocal selections from Smauel Barber's Adagio for Strings.
Senior Citizens: $15
Interfaith Hospitality Network
Our next opportunity to “share the care” for the guests of IHN is with the Park United Methodist Church. The IHN families will be at Park United Mission House for two weeks, from April 19 to May 3.
Can you help as a meal host (5:30-6pm), evening host (5:30 – 9pm), overnight host (9pm – 7:30pm)? Shift times are negotiable. Park United has worked with a different schedule than GRCC is accustomed to so we can rearrange dinner/evening host times if that works for you!
There is an on-line signup! Click here. You will find instructions as well as suggested dinner menus. Just click to signup.
Bringing Up Children
Everyone wants his or her child to have a good education and to be physically fit and healthy. Everyone wants his or her child to be loved and safe. But we also need to provide for our children moral and spiritual education to become productive, responsible, and contributing members of our society.
However, in today's competitive culture it is easy to forget about moral and religious education. We think of getting into a good college and making sure they get good jobs. We get them on the best sports teams. Becoming a moral and spiritual person also requires work, preparation and above all, choices.
Our church is committed to educating the children of our community in the moral and spiritual truths of Christianity that brings balance to their life.
Here is something Jesus said that could be addressed to many families today: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me, get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message translation).
We invite you to bring your children to our church school, to sing in our children's choirs, to participate in many family activities of our church. We'll help you bring that balance into their lives and yours.
