You are cordially invited to participate in the worship, life and ministry of our congregation.
We are both the oldest and the youngest Presbyterian church in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The church building in which we worship was begun in 1797 and served as the home of the First Presbyterian Church of Bloomfield until 1966. In that year, our church family was born when four Bloomfield congregations, including "Old First", Westminster Presbyterian Church, Park Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Ampere Community Church, merged to form the present Church on the Green. Our congregation is a member of the Newark Presbytery and is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Bloomfield Presbyterian Church At Worship
The most basic form of Christian service is the communal worship of God. Our mission is to worship God with enthusiasm, power and praise through the ministry of Word and Sacrament, the ministry of music, and through our common ministry of prayer and praise.
We gather for Worship every Sunday at 10:45 AM. Other services of worship are held on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunrise and other days of significance on the Liturgical calendar. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated monthly. Child care is available during worship.
Music plays an integral part in the worship life of The Bloomfield Presbyterian Church. The worshiping congregation is led and assisted by Adult, Family, and Bell choirs.

A meeting of the congregation has been called by Session for Sunday, November 4, 2012 in the Parish House immediately following morning worship. The purpose of this meeting is to hear and act upon the report of the Designated Pastor Nominating Committee which has completed its work and is presenting a candidate for pastoral leadership. We will have the opportunity to hear the candidate preach and celebrate communion at morning worship. Then we will hear the report of the DPNC and act upon terms of call at the congregational meeting.

Our new book club year will start on September 10, 2012. We will meet at 7:30 P.M. in the church parlor. We will meet every second Monday of the month until June. Throughout this year, we will be reading A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and his Prayers by D.A. Carson. The wonderful book examines some of Paul's prayers in his Letters and gleans from them practical advice for improving our prayer life. It is a great book that has much to offer both our minds and our hearts. At our September meeting we will discuss chapter 1. Everybody is welcome! For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please contact the church office at (973) 743-1796 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUNDAY MORNING ADULT EDUCATION
Our Sunday morning education program will begin again on Sunday morning September 9. Whether you are an experienced Christian or a newer Christian, if you find that you sometimes have questions about what we believe and why we believe it, this is the program for you!! We will read and discuss James Boice's book Foundations of the Christian Faith. We will meet in the church parlor in the education building each Sunday morning from 9:45 A.M. to 10:30 A.M. Each chapter in Boice's book began life as a sermon, so it is not a dry textbook on theology. It is practical, relevant, and approachable. You are invited to attend even if you can only attend ocassionally. During the fall, we will be talking, among other things, about the fall of humanity, law and gospel, and the person and work of Christ. For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please call the church office at (973) 743-1796 or e-mail email@example.com.
