Welcome to Old First Church

Where tradition and the future meet.

On Sunday, September 3, join us in helping the people of Texas after Hurricane Harvey. This is what Christians do. Donation checks should be made out to Old First Church with Hurricane Harvey written on the check memo line. Donations for this cause will be accepted through Sunday, Sept. 17. OFC has donated $600 as of September 4 through One Great Hour of Sharing. 

A message from our pastor.

Welcome to our website. If you are searching for a different kind of community, Old First Church should be your choice. Our community of faith is committed to the Gospel in that we strive not just to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, but to work for the elimination of the root causes of poverty. We are a community committed to the stewardship of God’s world and speak up on the issues that affect our environment. We have many different opinions but are grounded in the love that we experience through our common confession of faith as loving mercy, seeking justice, and walking humbly with God.

Gather for Worship to Engage in Service for Humankind

Old First Church's mission for September, 2017 is Rutgers Protestant Campus Ministry (RPCM). This organization's mission is to provide a radically loving and welcoming community of Christian faith for Rutgers University students through worship, study, conversation, service, and fellowship. 

RPCM is dedicated to the faith and practice of Jesus Christ, and also the acceptance and understanding of other beliefs and faiths. They are committed Christians, but are non-proselytizing. They are concerned with social justice issues affecting our society and in engaging the Rutgers and New Brunswick communities in meaningful conversation and action. Radically inclusive and committed to ensuring all people who walk through the door know they are welcome there, they covenant to be the hands and feet of Christ!

Please make your check payable to OFC Deacons Fund with RPCM on the memo line and send to Old First Church, 69 Kings Highway, Middletown, NJ 07748.

He has told you, O mortal, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,

to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
