Our School Year Begins on Sunday, September 9th

Adult Education will begin at 9:15am and Sunday school will meet at 9:45 for breakfast, registration and a description of the year ahead. Worship will return to 10:30am.


Celebration Sunday

Please join us in worship on September 16th at 10:30am for Celebration Sunday, as we celebrate the fruits of God’s blessings and the generosity of this congregation through the Raise the Roof Campaign. The 3-year Raise the Roof Campaign raised nearly $1,000,000 in support of the construction of a new roof, siding and HVAC system for the Education Wing. As the campaign comes to its official close, we are so thankful for those folks who have donated gifts or service or both, as well as those who have benefited from the building improvements themselves. If you would still like to contribute to the campaign, donations would be most welcome. Remember, that if the 1,000,000 goal is reached, someone will be wearing the coconut bra and doing the hula! FPCH has been blessed by the generosity not only of this campaign, but of the ones which came before. Don’t miss out as we gather to celebrate these tangible gifts of Christ’s living Spirit here in Hightstown on September 16th.

We will have our picnic following worship. Please bring a dish to share (serving 8-10), and we’ll enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers prepared by the Fellowship Committee.

Announcing the…

“Get to Know Your Church Neighbor”

Dinner Initiative

Join us September 29th for a meaningful At-Home Fellowship opportunity!

Do you know who in our congregation…

  • has a name that came from the Welsh language?
  • was a professional radio broadcaster?
  • lived in Japan?
  • has the most children?
  • loves antique cars?
  • can tell you where to find a Walking Iris?
  • can speak Romanian?
  • knows the best houses for sale in Hightstown?
  • has walked on the moon?*

Our congregation has amazing stories to tell, and friendship to share! And now you can get to know the person in your pew, or (better), several pews over–by sharing a meal together through the At-Home Fellowship Project.

How does it work? It’s easy. It’s potluck. Just…

  1. Decide your role. Both hosts and guests are needed. Hosts do not need to have a large, elaborate home, and it doesn’t have to be in Hightstown. You’ll cook a main dish for your guests. And you can suggest what guests can bring by way of a side dish or dessert. Let us know if your planned event would be appropriate for children. Tell us how many people you can host, typically 4-8.
  2. Tell the Fellowship Committee that you want to participate.
  3. Have a good time!

For more information or to get involved, contact Susan Matson. Download the registration form here.

The planning deadline is September 20th.

* ok, we were kidding about that one—but the others are real!

Program page


Please contact Dave Zaiser or Mary Maleski for information.






We are a warm, inviting Christian community where everyone is welcome.  Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.


We believe that the Christian faith should be lived rather than memorized.  We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world, and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest.  Wherever you are along your journey through life, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.
