We believe that faith is a journey, not a destination.
We hope that your path will lead you to visit us here at The Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville.
Here is some information that might be useful before your first visit.
We have two worship services – at our 10am service (9:30 in summer months July through Labor Day Sunday), you will be warmly greeted by people dressed traditionally, but also many dressed informally or in “business casual.” This is classic Presbyterian worship, focused on scripture and the preaching that aims at applying the Bible to our everyday lives. Music is a key feature of this service—classic and contemporary hymns sung with gusto, and a choir that glorifies God with sacred music from many places and periods. Children are welcome here. Preschoolers (Pre-K) are welcomed in the preschool classroom before church (an usher or member will help you if you need to find the preschool room), but Kindergarten and older children usually begin in worship, and then are dismissed to their Sunday School classes after a children’s message at the front of the church. About once every five weeks, they have their own worship, in Children’s Chapel.
Our 5pm service, called Worship in a New Key, is a smaller, more intimate and more informal worship experience. Come as you are to worship in our beautiful Chapel space, with music that spans the gamut – bluegrass, folk, gospel, contemporary, traditional and ancient, all done by a variety of musical artists. Once per month, we have a Taize style worship, using meditative singing and silence. The proclamation and the liturgy are creative, eclectic and ever-changing, but worship always follows the traditional Presbyterian order, and there is communion every week.
You’ll find more information below that may be useful to you – and we hope that you also explore our website for more information about our programs.

Parking: Our entrance is at Gordon Avenue and Route 206 (Lawrenceville Road). You’ll be routed to our main parking lot at the north end of the building. If it’s full, you can also park along 206, or find a spot somewhere across the street in downtown Lawrenceville. Here is a map showing additional parking places.
Handicap Accessibility: There is a wheelchair ramp into our sanctuary, for those participating in our 10am service. Unfortunately, our Chapel is located on a second-floor space that is not wheelchair accessible.
