Bible Study (Matthew)
Children begin Sunday School by first attending worship with family.
Come join us! We invite you and your family to be a part of our church fellowship. We are an active, family oriented church located at the corner of Ridgewood Avenue and Clark Street in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. We welcome you to particpate in all our church activities. Membership is not required!
Be a part of our Christian family!
We have something for everyone! We offer Christian education programs for children and youth, a confirmation program, Young People's Society, Christians In Action, scholarships and intergenerational events. Our mission and outreach, ministries, bible study and choir provide adults the opportunity to grow in their faith while serving the church and outside community.
Bringing Up Children
Everyone wants his or her child to have a good education and to be physically fit and healthy. Everyone wants his or her child to be loved and safe. But we also need to provide for our children moral and spiritual education to become productive, responsible, and contributing members of our society.
However, in today’s competitive culture it is easy
to forget about moral and religious education.
think of getting into a good college and making sure
they get good jobs. We get them on the best sports
teams. Becoming a moral and spiritual person also
requires practice, preparation and above all, choices.
Our church is committed to educating the children
of our community in the moral and spiritual truths of
Christianity that brings balance to their lives.
There is a saying of Jesus: “…seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone
who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who
knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8).
We are all seekers. Come join us as we seek to know
ourselves and God and new ways to serve God.
We invite you and your children to our church. For the children there are church school classes and our children’s choirs. For you there are also opportunities to learn and practice faith, to volunteer in many community service projects of the church. And for both there are many family activities of our church. We’ll help you bring that balance into their lives and yours.
