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.


Learn about us

Rumson Presbyterian has provided spiritual solace and inspiration for generations and have been oriented toward service and hospitality.


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.



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.
