Church on the Green Needs Some Green

Many towns have a town square or green as it's hub. Bloomfield has it's Presbyterian Church on the Green. It's as much an icon for our town as the Capitol Building is to Washington D.C.

In the past year, the structural stability of the church building has been compromised by a combination of record snows, deep freezes, and the strongest earthquake in the recorded history of the area. Services have been moved to the adjacent Church Sancuary.

A long term plan to restore and stabilize the building has begun to take shape and, hopefully, can be completed by the end of our Bicentennial Year.

Donations are welcome and can be sent directly to the Church at 147 Broad St., Bloomfield 07003, Checks should be made out to Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green and marked "Building Fund." [office phone: (973) 743-1796]
