300th Anniversary

First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen, 300 Years in the Making

Since 1717, the people of this historic, central New Jersey community have gathered in the name of Christ our Lord to serve and worship God. The 300-Year Anniversary Committee has planned several activities throughout the year to celebrate our church, its history and our future. Over the past 300 years, our church has had the opportunity, as described in Ecclesiastes, to have a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance (Ecclesiastes 3:4).
