A Small Group Experience for People Who Want to Discover More About God, Themselves, and Other Great People.

We'd love to have you join the Pluckemin Church Family! People considering membership participate in a multi-week small group experience called Discovery! You'll find a more detailed description of it below. Discovery! usually begins in mid-January and includes Sunday morning gatherings at 9am, two potluck dinners, a mission project and much more. You can sign up for the next Discovery! group by calling the church office at (908) 658-3346.

What is discovery?

Instead of a "New Members Class" The Presbyterian Church at Pluckemin offers a small group experience called "Discovery!." The emphasis is on building relationships with each other and God as well as on building knowledge of the church and what it means to be a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ. The Discovery Group experience includes times of learning, laughing, working together, and growing in faith. At the end of the group time you may choose to join this family of faith, but there is no obligation to do so.

who should come?

You! Each group includes folks who are new to Christianity as well as folks who have been life-long Presbyterians. Absolute beginners and seasoned experts sit side-by-side and learn from each other. If you are not yet a member and are looking to take a step forward in faith, this is the group for you. Spouses are very welcome too!

what will we actually do?

The emphasis of Discovery! is on building your relationships with Jesus Christ and each other. You'll also learn a little about this congregation's past and future, discuss what it means to be on a journey of faith, complete a mission project, and meet several church leaders - and have fun doing it! All this happens in an informal-"no question is too stupid"-setting. Coffee and childcare are provided.

what if i have never been baptized?

No problem! This group is the ideal preparation for baptism.

what about child care?

Our Nursery and Sunday School will be open for all morning sessions. Child care will be arranged as needed for the evening sessions and mission project.

how do i sign up?

Just call our church office (908) 658-3346 to sign up for our next available group.
