Who are we Presbyterians? As far back as 1837 the General Assembly declared that the church, by its very nature, is a missionary society whose purpose is to share the love of God in Jesus Christ in word and deed and with all the world. Learn more about the history of the PC(USA) in this short summary of who we are and what makes us different.
If you have been visiting with us at New Providence and are thinking about joining or would just like to know more about us, please come to our next Inquirers’ class. Those who wish to join the church after completing the Inquirers’ class will be received by Session and introduced to the congregation.
During the class, you will learn about our church and will also have the opportunity to visit with our pastors, some of our members and other potential new members. We would appreciate hearing from you if you plan on attending. Please call the church office at 983-0182.
Inquirers’ classes are offered several times each year, last for four weeks and are held on Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel.
The Church exists for the glory of God and for service to humankind. As a part of our effort to reach out to our members and to the larger community in Christian love, our facilities are available to both members and non-members for worship, teaching, and witnessing to the Gospel and for activities that are in keeping with the mission of the church.
