Enlist - About Us
We believe that Jesus Christ came into the world to reveal the fullness of God's love for us. And we celebrate that love as we receive the good news of God's grace through our praise and prayer, the gathering around table and font as we share in the holy sacraments, our mutual journey of faith and our commitment to the community.
Encourage - You are Welcome Here
Ours is a welcoming congregation. We invite you to join us, as you are. And we encourage you to take part in the wide range of ministry opportunities offered here. Whether you desire to connect with God in Christ through worship, study, prayer or service, we have something for you.
Engage - Your Spiritual Journey
Faith does not grow in a vacuum. Getting Engaged, Living Engaged and Staying Engaged are key to a joyful, gracious, generous and purposeful life. We would love to join with you in worship. And we invite you to share in our discipleship and mission programs, becoming a part of our faith community as we seek to meet and share Christ together.
The Springfield Area Interfaith Clergy Association and the Township of Springfield invite you to join us for our Service of Unity in honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this Monday, January 18th at 3pm. Here is the Zoom link:
News & Events
Worship Online, Sundays at 10:15am--on YouTube:
Our worship has moved to an online format during the coronavirus crisis. We moved from the conferencing app Zoom to YouTube. Some weeks, we will be sharing in communion. On those occasions, you may join us by having some crackers and juice with you at home. Special circumstances cause special responses!
If you can't join us for any of these services, you will be able to see the worship video on YouTube later each day.
We trust in this good news: where two or three are gathered--physically or virtually--there is Christ among us. We appreciate your prayerful support as we work out the kinks!

In-House Worship Cancelled
Due to the quick progression of the COVID-19 virus in NJ and around the world, we have had to make changes to our "routine," just as you have. So, worship will be shared using online tools. Gatherings in-house are cancelled and will happen via Zoom. With patient hearts, may we care for one another by working to protect our families, our neighbors, our community and the wider world from this pandemic.
Church Office is Closed
Our church offices are closed at present, although there will be someone staffing the phone, collecting mail and handling administrative and ministry tasks as they arise, M-F 9am to Noon. If you have a pastoral need, contact the church office by phone or email and a staff member will be in touch.
We still plan to publish our monthly newsletter as frequently as advisable. But we will also be reaching out to our members and friends by written forms of communication, including regular and ongoing emails to those who are online. If you want to receive email communications from the church but are not on our current email list, please contact us and we will add your email address to our list.
