God's Army Ministry


God’s Army Ministry, an independent church started seven years ago in Perth Amboy, focused on a ministry of connecting people in need with social services and, as needed, direct aid, are now in operation here at First Presbyterian Church. Their worship, contemporary in style and Spirit-led in tradition, happens at 2pm each Sunday, in the sanctuary. They started here on July 1 of this year.



Until they rebuild, St Cyril and St Methodius Polish Catholic Church worship in our church each Sunday at noon.
