About Us

There is a place for you at First Presbyterian Church of New Vernon, New Jersey.

A historic church in the heart of Harding Township, serving our community since 1833.


Inspiring our community to grow in faith and service


This is our church’s mission statement, and we are committed to providing opportunities for people of all ages to learn and grow, becoming the people God has created them to be.


We are a community . . .


FPCNV welcomes people for all walks of life, and from many different faith traditions.  We are a PC (USA) congregation, but our members come from many different backgrounds (Baptist, Methodist, Episcopal, Roman Catholic and more).


We serve our community . . .


We gift 15% of our annual revenue to charity partners in and around Morris County.  Throughout the year we connect with them through service projects and special events.  Members of all ages find these programs a great way to give back.
