Common Ground - Sundays @ 8:30am
The First Reformed Church of Pompton Plains, is a community committed to connecting people to the love and mission of God in the world. Common Ground is one of our two worshiping communities. Common Ground is made up of people from all walks of life, taking in a casual style of worship in Friendship Hall (south end of campus) at 8:30 am every Sunday.
The official time for worship starts at 8:30 am, but often people start gathering 15 minutes before. Our worship usually begins with readings from the Bible and some shared singing. The heart of it all is a teaching or sermon built around a lesson from scripture. We are regularly asking, "Who is God?" and "What difference does the reality of God make in my life?" It is in God's word that we find direction, insight and hope.
You don't have to completely believe in God, the Bible or the person of Jesus to join us. In fact many regulars are on a journey of trying to know Christ and come with all kinds of questions. We are all in a life-long journey of trusting God with our lives. We are a church with open doors, welcoming anyone seeking God.
Worship usually ends with some more singing and some socializing over coffee and snacks. We know that coming to a church for the first time is very intimidating, so here are a few things that might make your first visit easier.
Child Care - Free childcare is provided for parents of children under the age of 2 during the service. The child care workers are screened and trained. Our nursery is equipped with games, toys and cribs. It can be found just inside the Ministry Center (the center of campus).
Celebration - Sundays @ 10:00am
The First Reformed Church is a grace-oriented place to worship where you can bring your questions, your doubts, your faith, and your experiences.

The Celebration Service takes place in our Sanctuary, which is a beautifully designed, large sacred space located in the middle of our campus. The music for that service is led by our Chancel Choir, Bell Choir, musicians or vocalists. It features a wide variety of musical styles, from traditional hymns to contemporary Christian songs - and everything in between.
A sermon message is given during the service by one of our pastors with a focus on intersecting relevant issues with encouraging and practical biblical truths that can guide us through the best and worst times in life.
Worship usually ends with a song and an invitation to connect over coffee and snacks in our Friendship Hall (south end of campus).
