Our Mission Statement : “We, the First Presbyterian Church of Rumson, are called by God to be a spiritual and visible presence by living out our faith and sharing our gifts among God’s people.”

 

We are a faith community which began a journey in this place in 1861, and which is hoping to be faithful to that journey in the 21st century.

Our Mission

We recognize the spiritual dimension of our work & the need to empty ourselves of ourselves, so that our serving is done in the energy and flow of an eternal unconditional love.

A Place of Welcome

We believe that some of God’s best work gets done around a table or a coffee pot or in conversation after heart-felt worship and in-between activities in our busy lives.

Worship

Sunday morning worship is the focal-point of our church life. We follow a traditional order of worship and our sanctuary is a unique and inspiring space of beauty and prayer.
