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 10:00 AM (Summer hour). 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 by Pastor Ruth Boling and assisted by Adult, Family, and Bell choirs.

MONDAY EVENING BOOK GROUP
Does your prayer life ever seem cold or lifeless? Does praying ever seem like a chore? If we are honest, I suspect there are times in the lives of nearly all Christians when we could say those statements about ourselves. By looking at examples of Paul's prayers, we can get practical advice for improving our prayer life. Sound interesting? If so, please join us for our Monday evening book group. We will meet again on Monday, March 11 and will meet at 7:30 P.M. in the church parlor. We 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. At our March meeting we will discuss chapters 7 and 8, which is about excuses we make for not praying and ways to overcome those hurdles. Everybody is welcome! For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please contact Glenn or call the Church's Office 973-743-1796 for more info.
SUNDAY MORNING EDUCATION PROGRAM
Our Sunday morning education program continues under the leadership of Bruce Arlett and Glenn Maciag. We continue to read and discuss James Boice's book “Foundations of the Christian Faith.” We 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 occasionally. During March, we will be talking, among other things, about the person and work of Christ. For more information or to get your own copy of the book, please contact Glenn or call the Church's Office 973-743-1796 for more info.
