First Presbyterian Church of Matawan

For those of you interested in knowing more about that big church by the lake on Route 34, the place near the Buttonwood where the Matawan fireworks display originates every year, I've established a web blog that might give you some idea of what goes on there. Beyond worship and music and Christian education, First Pres opens its doors to the community for events like American Boychoir concerts, Spotlight Players stage plays, and a host of Twelve Step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and other social organizations. Outreach to the community includes Mission Matawan, an annual project aimed at helping the poor and elderly with small home repair jobs; Club 60, which keeps local seniors active; and Presbyterian Nursery School, which has been providing quality education to youngsters for about forty years. No doubt a blog can help spread the news.

If you don't have a church home and haven't visited First Pres before, I recommend that you check it out. Summer services are at 9:30 am. And if you aren't Christian but want to help out one of the community efforts, give the church a call and see how you might contribute.
