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.

Today But Not Yet

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Series: Clinging to Jesus: Response and Resistance

Text:Luke 4:14-21


Jesus comes to the synagogue in his home town of Nazareth on the Sabbath.  He is given a portion of Isaiah to read.  This suggests that Jesus had done this on a regular basis.  He reads from the 61st chapter of Isaiah which announces the presence of the Holy Spirit and then speaks of the work of the Spirit to bring good news to the poor and release to the captives.  After reading, Jesus tells the congregation that “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:21).  Yet, how can this be?  We still see the poor and oppressed and the blind and the suffering among us. Jesus is announcing the beginning of the gospel proclamation in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is one of the most neglected themes in the Christian faith.  Yet, the Spirit provides us with two things necessary for Christian life, power and hope.

Daniel I: “Ten Times Better than the Magicians”

February 4, 2016

The Book of Daniel is an account of living in two worlds.  Daniel and his three friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, are taken captive to Babylon after the fall of Jerusalem.  They were young Israelite nobles who were being prepared for service in the King’s court.  This means however that they are in the midst of an idolatrous nation.  In this context they will neither retreat from, nor convert to, their new world.  Daniel remains a model for us today in our increasing idolatrous society.
