First Presbyterian Church of Branchville, established in 1820 in the northwestern territory of New Jersey known as "The Skylands," has a long history of serving the community and the world in the name of Jesus Christ. Worship is offered Sunday mornings at 10:00am, lately only online, and Sunday School is not allowed to meet. The church is  located on Rt. 519 (3 Wantage Avenue) in the heart of Branchville.  

Come visit us online, worship, chat, and you just may feel that you've found a new church home. We hope so  - we'd love to have you join us.


Exciting things were going on in person in the Fellowship Hall during worship pre-pandemic, but since then our 2 new Sunday School Superintendents (Kristen Reinertsen and Julie Anderson Clawson) have created a curriculum for ages 3 and up each month.

So for now we'll keep our kids at home and hopefully we'll be back together soon. 

Below are pictures of our take-home VBS 2020 - ROAR! week of activities, as put together by Linda Osborne from our church, and her sister and others at the Andover Presbyterian Church.
