Greetings from the Pastor
We welcome you to the First Presbyterian Church of Matawan. We are a regional church that traces its roots back over three hundred years to pre-Revolutionary times to 1685 when a group of Scots arrived from the Port of Edinburgh.
We have been a part of this diverse community, changing with the times yet remaining true to our founding principles -- to help share the good news of God's love through activities and gatherings that serve, and nurture people in faith and Christian love. We do this through worship, fellowship, education, support and service to others.
It is the people of our congregation who make this church a special place as folks from over 30 nations have found out and now affirm. In addition, many community groups call us 'home.'
The purpose of this site is to acquaint you with our church and the many opportunities for you to receive ministry from us and to participate in growing and serving with us.
We hope you will look inside and become more familiar with all that is happening here. We invite you to join us on our faith journey and celebrate God's love.
You are welcome here!
Grace and peace,
