The United Presbyterian Church of Plainfield, NJ is a dynamic congregation that seeks to serve the Lord as people of faith. We learn of God by serving our community with each other in a variety of ministries. There is definitely a place for you at the table for one of the most powerful places for building community. The meal is frequently the place where families gather, where reunions are held, where great moments are celebrated, where community itself is shaped and formed. Our hope is that we envision new ways for diverse cultures to gather, converse, and celebrate at the table together as one community in Christ without in the process forsaking our own unique identities or leaving behind the bounty that you uniquely contribute to the feast. Come and let us celebrate together!
“As Christians we are called together and empowered by the Holy Spirit to study, worship, love, and serve God. We are a community of people within the Presbyterian Church (USA) who represent a variety of backgrounds, cultures, ideas and faith experiences. God challenges us to be a dynamic group of Christians which accepts each member’s unique contribution and celebrates the richness of our diversity. We believe our purpose as a congregation is to strengthen our faith and spiritual commitment, to nourish each other in Christian fellowship, and to spread the Good News through mission and witness. We believe that we honor our long, rich history when we listen and respond to our community and world’s current calls for help and seek to engage others on our discipleship journey. We do this through:
• Worship and celebration expressed through witness, prayer and music
• Christian Education for people of all ages
• Outreach beyond our doors to those in need
• Stewardship of our time, talent and facilities”
