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!

The Upward Wind Ensemble plays 'Hope Everlasting on April 3, 2022

The "Pay it Forward Little Pantry" is 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. Spread the word-we are so glad to be able to help others in these challenging times!

Our "Pay it Forward Little Pantry" has had some changes and additions!  There are now 3 cabinets, all with doors on them, and one is dedicated to personal care / hygiene items.  There is also a galvanized can that is dedicated for pet foods.

Rev. Erin Hayes-Cook

A Prayer for Ukraine

February 24, 2022


Creator God,


Our hearts are heavy for our siblings in the Ukraine whose country is at war; and for their extended family throughout the world who are worried. No words could ever encompass what we need to ask. We feel helpless. We feel unsure of what will happen to the beloved human family.

We ask for peace despite our ignorance in how it might happen. We ask for safety and provision. Remembering the men and women who will say goodbye to their loved ones and face the unknown, give a measure of strength. In the meantime, hold our hearts and quicken them to be ready to serve your people. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

-Rev. Erin Hayes-Cook
Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Hackettstown, NJ
