Children begin Sunday School by first attending worship with family.

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!

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.
Sermons for Lent
The Prayer for Growing Disciples
Mr. Stinson plans a series of sermons on the Lord’s Prayer for Lent. He will examine the prayer from the perspective of how Jesus intended the daily praying of his prayer to form our discipleship.
There is a very old saying in the church, ‘as the people pray, so the people believe.’ This is part of Jesus’ intention with this prayer but he also tries to use it to shape our lives and choices as disciples.
The schedule follows:
February 18th, Ash Wednesday
Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done
Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread
Forgive Us Our Debts as We Forgive Our Debtors
Lead Us Not into Temptation, But Deliver Us from Evil
March 29th, Palm Sunday
For Thine Is the Kindom, the Power, the Glory
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.
