The First Presbyterian Church of Connecticut Farms/ Gabrielle Rossi

Located at the heart of Union, New Jersey the First Presbyterian Church of Connecticut Farms is the oldest faith community in Union as it was established in 1730 by Puritan farmers from Connecticut when a charter was received from the Presbytery of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The descendants of the early colonial settlers decided to build a church in Connecticut Farms; a major agricultural colony and what is now Union Township in Union County, New Jersey. In its rich 275 years of history, the congregation has been served by seventeen ministers and has had its share of peaks and valleys and continues to live by the word of God.
