The First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen (FPC) is an inclusive, connected, and loving community mobilized to serve Jesus Christ. We are a welcoming and diverse congregation that serves God by improving the spiritual, mental and physical well-being of people in our community and beyond through worship, education, fellowship, and mission outreach. All are welcome to participate in the life of our open and affirming church, part of the connected family of churches in the Reformed tradition, in the denomination of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Our Community Nursery School provides classes Monday through Friday for children ages two and a half years through kindergarten and is open to the entire community.
