Sunday Worship, 10:45AM

For public health reasons, the Church on the Green is worshiping virtually and the church buildings are closed at this time. We invite you to join us on Sundays, via Facebook Live. The service begins at 10:45 AM.

 

Guest Preacher,  Rev. Tom Malek-Jones

Our guest preacher on January 3 will be the Rev. Tom Malek-Jones. Pastor Tom retired this year after 37 years as a pastor and military chaplain. He is a long-time friend of the Church on the Green. As supervisory chaplain at the VA NJ Healthcare System, Pastor Tom was awarded the Undersecretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs Excellence in Chaplaincy Leadership Award in 2014. His military service varied from tours at the Pentagon, the National Security Agency and the Dover Port Mortuary.  Pastor Tom served the former Patterson Memorial Presbyterian Church in West Orange and as the moderator of the Presbytery of Newark. We are fortunate to have him as our guest preacher while Pastor Boling is on vacation.
