Who We Are
The First Presbyterian Church of Hamilton Square, New Jersey can trace its origins to 1772 and has very deep roots in our community. Our congregation is broadly spread throughout the major age groups; our members range from youth making their initial commitment to Christ to a strong and active group of retirees. A quick glance at the individual members will reveal a mix of long term local residents and a somewhat transient population. Members of our church make a concerted effort to be warm, friendly, and inviting to our community and to the visitors who come to our church facilities. We place a very strong emphasis on serving our young people through an extensive Sunday School program and Vacation Bible School. Furthermore, we have an active youth fellowship program under the guidance of a full time youth director. Offerings to our youth include multiple service opportunities, mission trips, Bible studies, and assisting them in establishing connections and friendships.
Our church family loves music. We place a significant emphasis on the extensive choral and instrumental music programs in our traditional worship services. These musical programs provide a ministry for all ages. Our Contemporary Worship Service focuses on Praise in word and music. Supporting the spiritual needs of our congregation and community is vital to us, hence our commitment to offering a variety of worship experiences.
Opportunities are provided for adult education and fellowship. Adults may choose from Bible study, educational topics, home groups, service projects, and social programs and events. Additionally, our biannual church wide retreat to Camp Johnsonburg provides a break from the routine of everyday life and is helpful in strengthening the bonds with God, our families, and our friends.
