About Us / Visitors’ Page

Hello and welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Blackwood!!  We are located at 21 East Church Street, Blackwood, NJ 08012 which is located on the corner of Church Street and Route 168 or the Black Horse Pike.  There is a Rite Aid across from the church on Route 168.


Here are some simple questions and answers to help you become better acquainted with our church:

1.) What should I know about the Worship Services?  We currently have one service at 11:00 am on Sunday morning.  During the Summer Months (Memorial Day through Labor Day), we change the time to 10:00 am. Informal Dress is ok as well as formal dress.  Our church is family-oriented.  We have a children’s sermon during the service that is directly for the children 5 years and older.  For the smaller children ages 5 and younger, we have nursery services available with  responsible supervising adults downstairs in our nursery room.  We have a choir, a pianist and a beautiful pipe organ.  We have a children’s choir as well.

2.) Where do I park and enter the building for worship?  Our church parking lot is designed to have a one-way entrance and one-way exit.  You enter the parking lot by way of the driveway closest to the cemetery; you drive around the church and park into the parking lot.  Handicap spaces are available. There are also 3 visitor’s spots right next to the building.  You can also park in the Paris Caterers parking lot (entrance on Black Horse Pike) and then walk on the path through the cemetery to the Church.  Enter the building through the front doors on Church Street into the Narthex where you will be greeted by one of our ushers and given a church bulletin.  Please feel free to sit anywhere you like in the Sanctuary.

3.) What is available for my children?  We have nursery services available for children 5 years and younger staffed by some of our parent and youth volunteers.  Our pastor also gives a children’s sermon.  We have Sunday School classes for children ages 2-3 through Youth Group.  These classes start at 9:30am (September through May).

4.) What fellowship groups do we have?  Our church offers a variety of different fellowship opportunities.  We offer Sunday School for Adults on Sunday at 9:30am (September through May). We have a Bible Study Tuesday Evenings at 7:00pm.  We are a praying church and we offer a prayer chain that can be contacted at any time.  If you enjoy singing or ringing, we have a Tone Chime Choir that rehearses on Thursdays at 6:30pm.  For the singers, there is Choir Rehearsal at 7:00pm on Thursdays.  We have a Men’s Group and a Woman’s Group as well.  Our youth group is for grades 7 thru 12.  Our church is a family-oriented church and we have, once a month,  an activity in which all can participate.  We have an Outreach to Camden Ministry that meets every 5th Sunday to help feed the homeless in Camden.
