“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

Christmas Eve 2021

As in 2020, our Christmas Eve was marked by the COVID-19 pandemic… and again we adjusted!
For the first time we held a Christmas Eve Eve service. All of our members, neighbors and friends were invited to join us for two outdoor services on December 23rd. 
Our Christmas Eve services were held in the Sanctuary and – while protecting ourselves and our members by wearing masks and distancing where possible – we worshipped, sang and lifted our candles in joyous celebration of Jesus’ birth.

The Longest Night – December 12, 2021

This unique service provides peace to those dealing with grief, illness, anxiety or depression this holiday season who may not feel the joy or celebration seen in others – for many reasons.
The Longest Night includes elements from a Service of Remembrance, including the Lord’s Supper, special music and a time for prayer. All ages and faiths are welcome. 
Princeton Theological Seminary intern Paul Savage led this service. 


A Service of Remembrance, Prayer and Resurrection – September 11, 2021

On Saturday September 11, we gathered at the cross in the First Presbyterian Church cemetery for a service of remembrance, prayer and resurrection as we commemorated the 20th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack in world history. This was a solemn time for reflection, prayer, scripture reading, and song as we remembered the 2,977 lives tragically taken from this world and the 20-year war that ensued.
For those who were unable to attend, this prayer guide provided prayers and scripture readings to coincide with the times the planes struck the World Trade Center towers, Pentagon, and field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Holy Week and Easter 2021

The continued threat of the spread of the coronavirus banned large gatherings of people, including church services. But just because worshipers cannot be together, does not mean they cannot PRAY together. First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown invited the community to a take part in a series of special livestream worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and special services during Holy Week – all from the safety and comfort of home.

Christmas Eve 2020

Planning for Christmas Eve in the middle of a pandemic, like nearly everything else we’ve faced in 2020, wasn’t easy. Consider that Christmas Eve is the night when everyone goes to church. Not this year. Most churches planned for pre-recorded or live stream services with no in-person participants.

But at FPC Moorestown, after planning and adjusting, we were able to offer both in-person and live stream Christmas celebrations.

On Consecration Sunday 2020

We were all together at home for ONE 9:30 am live stream service on Sunday, October 18th, where we welcomed our engaging speaker Dr. Shane Berg from Princeton Theological Seminary. During worship, members completed their 2021 Estimate of Giving. It some ways, things looked different this year and, in some ways, they looked just the same!
Drive-Up Dedication Parade
AND HOW NEAT — we had over 50 cars drive to church after worship to dedicate their pledges in PERSON at our contact-free Drive-Up Dedication Parade. Members dedicated their gifts safely from their car and received wrapped chocolate chip cookies as a thank you! (COVID-style through the window of course). 


Christmas Eve Services 2019

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.
The light has shined on those who’ve lived in the land of the shadow of darkness.
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given and His Name will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Our Christmas Eve Worship Services include candle lighting, dramatization of the Christmas Story and the singing of Christmas Carols in preparation for the celebration of the Birth of Christ.
Rev. Stuart Spencer and Kelly LePenske preaching.
