Who We Are
First Presbyterian Church is a loving community of Christ's Disciples. We strive to be a place of hospitality and welcome for all God's people. We have a rich history of witness and service in Christ's name in the Newton area and beyond, dating back to the early 1800's. We look forward in hope, trusting that God will lead us just as we have been led in the past.On any given Sunday you will experience classic worship, vibrant music, thoughtful preaching, and warm fellowship. Throughout the week, in addition to our church programs and activities for all ages, we host Manna House, Literacy NJ, and serve as an anchor for Family Promise of Sussex County.
