What’s Happening Now At Central Presbyterian Church

Upcoming Worship

Central offers an 8:30am service each Sunday, held in the Cloister Garden (in the Auditorium in case of rain).  Communion will be served every week at this service.

Central is worshiping in the Sanctuary Sunday mornings at 10am.  We will remain masked and observe social distancing.

Those in or near  Summit, NJ, can also join us for worship at 10am Sunday mornings  on Hometowne TV.  The service will be live streamed to our  Facebook as staffing allows, and will be posted to our  YouTube channel  after the broadcast concludes.

The Nursery will be available to age three and under.  Sunday School for ages 3 through middle school is held in the auditorium each Sunday during the 10am worship service.
