Welcome

 

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, both in-person and online, and Sunday School meets at the same time next door in the Fellowship Hall. The church is  located on Rt. 519 (3 Wantage Avenue) in the heart of downtown Branchville. 

 

Branchville was blessed to have the Rev. Dr. Jefferson and Kay Hatch lead our congregation for over 3 decades, and we wish them well in their recent retirement. Our pulpit is currently being filled by Bridge Pastor Nancy Young through early September, and we are blessed to announce that Pastor Pete will begin as our Interim Pastor on September 17th (see Pastoral Transition link above for more info), which will include the process of a mission study over the coming year. That study will culminate in our search for a full-time pastor to hopefully start sometime in 2024. Join us for this new adventure in the life of our church!

Come visit us online or in-person, worship, and 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.
