Notes:

A racially diverse, LGBTQ+ affirming church with over a century-long history, located in Leonia, NJ. Throughout the 1990’s the town of Leonia has seen great changes in its ethnic make up. In 1997 a group called the “Asian Ministry Project” was formed in order to study how to best move the Church forward. Through the assistance of Hyun K. Sung, an Assistant in Ministry, the project helped to start some much needed community conversation. These efforts continue today with such projects as English conversation classes and ESL Bible study. Also in 1997 a major building renovation created a warm and inviting space in the sanctuary and attached meeting spaces. In 1998 the Leonia Ecumenical Youth Group celebrated it’s 30th anniversary. For much of it’s history and continuing today the group uses the Presbyterian Church as it’s home. Our Church is committed to these ministries as well as other local and world wide missions.
