Grace Presbyterian Church, Montclair, New Jersey

Seeking to equip people to live as Christian disciples wherever God has placed them.


Welcome to Grace Presbyterian Church. We are a dynamic and diverse congregation who gather together in the name of Jesus Christ for worship, discipleship and service. As Christ’s followers we strive to grow in God’s love and show it in lives that are transformed, using the ageless truths of the Bible as our foundation.

Grace offers compelling opportunities for all ages from adult discipleship to choir to Sunday School and youth groups to service projects. Wherever you are in your faith pilgrimage, we hope you’ll join us and experience the life-changing message of the Gospel.

He ascended into heaven

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Series: The Apostles' Creed

Text:I Peter 3:18-22


The final climax of Jesus’ earthly ministry is only reached at the point of the Ascension.  This signifies two things.  Jesus’ work of redeeming the human race and conquering the powers of sin, death and hell is complete even though its full effects still await His return.  Second, the age of the church has begun.  The church is to testify to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is to proclaim Jesus as Lord in every area of life.  Yet during Jesus’ reign, at the right of the Father, the world will revert to the chaos and sin of the time of Noah (Matthew 24:37).  In this “time of Noah” between Christ’s ascension and second coming we need to learn the lessons of history.  This summer marks the one hundredth anniversary of the beginning of World War I, perhaps the most decisive event of the twentieth century.  During that period, the president of the United States was a devout Presbyterian Christian, Woodrow Wilson.  A hundred years later we would do well to heed the lessons of that time in history.

I Kings

I Kings 12-14: “The Return of the Golden Calf”

June 4, 2014

There is a conflict over the throne of Israel between Rehoboam, the son of Solomon and presumably the heir, and Jeroboam whom God has anointed in the place of Rehoboam because of his father Solomon’s apostasy.  The kingdom divides between the ten northern tribes given to Jeroboam and the tribes of Judah and Benjamin which remain under Rehoboam.  Yet all of Israel, including both kings, fall into apostasy and turn aside from the Lord.  God’s promise to David is sorely tested here.
