Welcome

We are delighted you have found us online and hope these pages will give you a sense of the vibrant, engaged and caring community we call our church family. Be our guest for Sunday worship and meet some of the folks who make this place special.

Worship Schedule

10:00 am Worship

Our summer schedule begins on May 21, 2017, with one worship service at 10:00 am.  Children in grades K-5 begin in worship with their parents and then go to Summer Church School at 10:15 am.  Nursery Care is available through 4 years of age.

9:45 am Worship

For people of all ages, our 9:45 am service runs concurrently with church school.  Children and youth (K-8) join us for the first 15 minutes of the service; younger children go directly to their classes.  A variety of musical offerings are provided by the Chancel Choir, adult or youth ensembles,  or one of our children's choirs

11:15 am Worship

This service is for those who enjoy a more relaxed start to their morning and prefer a more intimate environment. Musical offerings most often feature soloists and ensemble groups, with the Chancel Choir singing on occasion. Nursery care is provided through age 4.

Confirmation at PCCT is a nine-month program of learning, service, and participation in the worshipping life of our congregation. Targeted to 9th Grade youth, but open to anyone in high school, the program is designed to prepare young people to become adult members of the church, enable them to make a public profession of faith, and invite them to complete the vows made by their parents at the time of their baptisms.
Continuing our pattern from last year, classes will generally book-end the first service, with students arriving by 9:15 am, attending the 9:45 am service with their families and then returning to class from 10:45 to 11:30 am.
Confirmation Orientation for Students & Parents
Sunday, September 24, 11:00 am, Halldorson Hall
Families should complete the online registration at www.pcct-nj.org/confirmation prior to the Orientation Meeting.
