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.

Enduring to the End

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Series: Flashes of Lightning

Text:Matthew 24:9-14


Jesus continues his description of what will take place as “the beginning of the birth pangs” leading to the end of the age (Matthew 24:8).  He paints a disturbing picture of what will happen to his disciples. In a period of lawlessness there will be great opposition to their ministry, including torture and even death (Matthew 24:9).  Many will fall away and even those who profess a love of Christ will “grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).  This, however, is no picture of despair.  There is a strong note of joy in Jesus’ assurance that the victorious good news of the gospel will be proclaimed throughout the world “to all the nations” (Matthew 24:14).

II KIngs 7-9: “Judgement on False Kings and Queens”

December 3, 2014

In these chapters God takes an active hand in correcting the multiple abuses of the kings of both Israel and Judah.  He continues to work through Elisha as his spokesperson.  In spite of the failings of the southern kingdom of Judah, God will not abandon it because of the promise he made to David (II Kings 8:19).
