What's New at FPCH



Pictures of our church family and friends -  We want to fill the space, where our "Jesus and the Children" stained glass window was with pictures of our church family and friends.

Please send a picture of yourself, or a picture with family to the church and we'll be making our own colorful window to show that even in this time of social distancing we are together and we are strong!

Photos can be emailed to fpchnj@gmail.com or to Lorinda.ravo@gmail.com or they can be USPS mailed to the church at 298 Main Street.

What's New at FPCH


"Pay it Forward Little Pantry" located on the front porch of our Chapel at 291 Main Street (next to the Old Presbyterian Burial Ground cemetery).

The concept is simple: take what you need, leave what you can. The good news is, this is open 24 hours a day, and is open to all. We're operating on the honor system: please take only what you need. And if you're leaving food, please note that we can only accept CANNED goods: no plastic, glass, or paper/cardboard containers please. Spread the word-we are so glad to be able to help others in these challenging times!



All Are Welcome


Micah 6: 6-8  "...what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?'

 

Wonderfully created, redeemed, and sustained by God's love, we are freed to love ourselves and one another.  In our corporate worship we ask for God's forgiveness, gratefully receive God's grace, and listen for God's truth in the words of the Scripture and sermon.  Fed by the Word and inspired by the Spirit, we joyfully respond to God's love through the offerings of our means and our selves.

 

The First Presbyterian Church of Hackettstown, NJ is a Christian Church and a member of the Presbyterian Church USA.


Join us for worship this weekend!
