Our mission is to be disciples and make disciples of Jesus, loving and caring for God’s people everywhere.
Our vision is to be a dynamic family of faith who, while serving people of all ages and backgrounds, does the following:
Support faith formation and nurture each other into a deepening relationship with God.
Demonstrate Christ’s love and compassion through hands-on service to others.
Support individual and congregational discipleship, going where God calls us.
Trinity Presbyterian Church
What We Believe
Trinity belongs to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), which is part of the Reformed Tradition. In many ways, this tradition is like a big umbrella affording all kinds of room for all sorts of people and perspectives. So please note that not everybody has to agree on everything (in fact, it’s rare that you’ll find unanimity about anything in a community our size). But here’s an abridged glance of what our tradition holds dear.
How Trinity Began
Trinity was chartered May 17, 1894, as Die Deutche Prebysterische Kirche, The German Presbyterian Church, of South River, NJ. We will be celebrating our 60th Anniversary on 10/30/23.
Until 1946, German-speaking pastors occupied the pulpit, including the Rev. William J. Kern, after whom our present fellowship hall is named. In 1949, the name of the church was changed to the First Presbyterian Church of South River.
In 1960, in response to the area’s population growth and to meet the growing spiritual needs of the congregation the church bought the present property on Cranbury Road. On May 19, 1963, the first service was held in what is now Trinity Presbyterian Church.
