Our Sunday Concert Series returns on September 17th at 3PM. This month we feature Carol Baldessari, known to many in the congregation for her years with us as Contemporary Choir Director and soloist.
At the Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green we strive to connect the arts to the sacred. Our Sunday Concerts are held at 3PM outdoors in the Labyrinth, located at 67 Park Place (corner of Beach St. and Park Place) in Bloomfield. Admission is $10 at the door, cash/PayPal only. Light refreshments will be served following the performance.
In the event of rain, the concert will take place indoors.
Advance tickets are available here.
Worship in the Chapel
We have returned to the Chapel for worship! Thankfully the Covid transmission level in Essex County is now LOW. Therefore we have relaxed our mask recommendations.
The Session respectfully requests that, for the health of the community, those who attend worship in the Chapel be fully vaccinated. If you are eligible for a vaccine &/or booster, and have not yet taken advantage of that opportunity, we invite you to continue to worship virtually until you have done so.
With a Livestream Option:
For those who want or need to worship virtually, here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/ChurchontheGreen/. The worship services are posted on the church Facebook page after the fact and can be viewed at a later time.
On Communion Sundays, (first Sunday of the month), we invite virtual worshipers to prepare an area near your viewing screen to represent the Lord’s Table and set the table ahead of time with bread, a beverage, and enough cups for your household.
After a long hiatus due to Covid, we have now resumed offering a Fellowship Hours after worship whenever possible.
We will be purchasing “Glory to God” hymnals to use in addition to our current hymnal, in order to enhance congregational worship with a wider selection of hymns, psalms and spiritual songs, from six different continents, covering all major historical and contemporary sacred music genres,
You are invited to purchase a hymnal or hymnals for the church in memory of or in honor of loved ones or “to the glory of God.” The cost is $22. The hymnals are on display in the rear of the Chapel along with order forms and sample book plates.
Please visit hymnary.org (https://hymnary.org/hymnal/GG2013) for the table of contents.
