Please watch this short video to learn more about Flemington Presbyterian Church.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Flemington Presbyterian Church. If you are looking for a church home, we welcome you to attend worship with us and consider the possibility of becoming a member of our church.
About our Church
Flemington Presbyterian is a vibrant 600+ member congregation. Our membership spans a 15 mile radius around Flemington and comprises a mix of singles, couples and families that span decades. The diverse base of our congregation is brought together by a common desire to praise and celebrate God and to share our God-given gifts to serve and nurture God's people.
Why Attend Flemington Presbyterian?
Visitors and Members of our Congregation are drawn to our church for many reasons. For some, the initial draw is the beauty of the stained glass windows in the 130 year old sanctuary or the joyful noise of our vocal and bell choirs and 100 year old pipe organ. Perhaps the initial experience is an uplifting, meaningful worship service. It might be the priority of our youth programs as exemplified by a weekly children's message during worship and robust Sunday school and Youth Group programs. And for most of us, there's a sense of belonging and a common bond of fellowship and purpose in seeking to do God's will.
Why Consider Membership at Flemington Presbyterian?
Enlightening worship, great music, pretty windows and a strong youth program are all quality attributes of a church, however, membership in Flemington Presbyterian goes much further. As a Member, one begins to realize the depth and breadth of the church and the love and dedication of its members. Flemington Presbyterian offers a variety of ways to get involved through programs and activities ranging from leadership opportunities in the church Session, serving others with our board of Deacons, participating in numerous outreach programs, youth activities, Christian Education opportunities, Women's/Men's Groups, a Small Group program (interests groups, supper clubs, train clubs, Bible studies, etc.) and much more. There are lots of ways to get involved in the church, and many feel that the more involved, the more enriching and fulfilling the experience and the stronger the bonds of fellowship and purpose.
We warmly welcome you to worship and fellowship time afterward to get a better feel for who we are. Introduce yourself, ask lots of questions, and check out the activities happening in our weekly bulletin and at the numerous tables set up during fellowship hour. We hope that you find our church a warmly welcoming community of faith and that our programs and activities meet with your needs in a church home.
