Beautiful Pictures of Washington's Stain Glass Window:

[SOURCE: Scot Shepherd Historical Stained Glass Windows at the Church on the Green, p-3; WEBSOURCE: http://www.pcmorristown.org/files/Documents/History%20of%20the%20Church/Stained%20Glass%20Windows%20at%20PCM-Shepherd-June%202011.pdf ].

    In the Spring of 1777, General George Washington and his troops were encamped at Morristown, New Jersey - formerly called West Hanover.

    Washington’s Headquarters were at Arnold’s Tavern on the northwest corner of The Green [NOTE: Taverns were combination restaurants and inns - and rarely sol alcohol. The most expensive may have offered a bit of dinner wine!]

    The proprietor of the tavern was Jacob Arnold, a faithful member of the Morristown Ptresbyterian Church, and in later years, was elected a Trustee of The Presbyterian Church.

    George Washington had been raised as a member of the Church of England, of which the King of England was the head of the Church appointing the Arch-Bishops

    Obviously, since the Head of the Church of England - King George III, was doing his best to KILL George Washington, SMASH the newly declared USA, and put the 13 Colonies in a military-enforced servitude.

      >> FACT-1: ALL Church of England Ministers in the USA went to England during the war except two, one a crass Son of perdition, an "opportunist" who started a new denomination in the USA of the Churches of England now with out ministers;

      >> FACT-2: The opportunist minister declared himself "Bishop" - Bishop White, and his new denomination he named Episcopalian; [The other's name was Washington's neighbor and sometimes pastor Mason "Parson" Weems - more later]

      >> FACT-3: NONE of the Church of England ministers served as chaplains in Washington's Army;

      >> FACT-4: MANY Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and Congregationalists, with two Catholic and two Jewish men serving as Chaplains in Washington's Army.

      >> FACT-5: Washington, had always been a PROVIDENCE PRESBYTERIAN in doctrine, and a BAPTIST at heart.

      >> FACT-6: Washington took Communion with the Presbyterians at Morristown, NJ;

      >> FACT-7: Washington, reading the Bible on his own during the winter of Valley Forge, decided he needed to be baptized as an adult - NOT just as a baby - ans was baptized by a faithful Chaplain who had signed up for the duration: Rev. John Gano, from Kentucky;

      >> FACT-8: Washington, forever admiring Rev. Chaplain John Gano, had Gano pray the final Prayer officially ending the Revolutionary War. Gano went back to the Kentucky wilderness, Daniel Boone like!

      >> FACT-8: The Morristown Presbyterian Church and Rev Timothy Johnes, were also special to Washington's Heart;

      >> FACT-9: After Washington became President, with the US Capitol in Philadelphia, he did attend the New Episcopalian Church pastored by Bishop White . . . but mostly because it was the largest Church in town, and it was the ONLY kind of Church and worship his wife Martha had eve known;

      >> FACT-10: However, Washington - in his heart - still had the greatest affinity for the humble Kentucky Baptists and the Rural Presbyterians who met in the Orchard at Morristown;

      >> FACT-11: George Washington - equally so in his heart - despised Bishop White's enterprising, pretentious, high-faluting, opportunistic, advantage taking ways!

      >> FACT-12: George Washington NEVER joined Bishop White's biggest, fanciest Church in the US Capital City;

      >> FACT-13: George Washington NEVER participated in Communion served by the money-&-media seeking Bishop White;

      >> FACT-14: George Washington NEVER participated in Bishop White's personally contrived "worship practices";

      >> FACT-15: George Washington NEVER obeyed Bishop White's "worship orders" to "STAND! - now KNEEL! - now SIT - now KNEEL etc., etc.;

      >> FACT-16: George Washington NEVER conversed one single word on God, Bible and religion with the money-&-media seeking Bishop White - by White's own admission:

      >> FACT-17: This so bothered Bishop White and his most arrogant flunky - his decades long assistant Abercrombie - that one Sunday when White was gone and Abercrombie in charge, he REBUKED President George Washington PUBLICLY for not jumping up and down like a trained hamster.

      >> FACT-18: George Washington, gentleman that he was, said not a word, but NEVER again returned to their "Holy Communion debacle;

      >> FACT-19: As far as in known the last 20 years of his life, George Washington ONLY received Communion served by the Presbyterians;

      >> FACT-20: As far as in known the last 20 years of his life, George Washington NEVER joined any Church, attended all, and had funerals held in Congregationalist and Lutheran, with messages by fellow War Officers eulogizing him: Richard Henry Lee, etc;

      >> FACT-21: George Washington did NOT have a funeral at a local Church in the Mt. Vernon area - such as Pohick Chapel - but was eulogized at home, with fellow Christian and Lodge Members;

      >> FACT-22: George Washington was also buried at home with the Scripture "I am the RESURRECTION and the LIFE" engraved on the tomb door;

      >> FACT-23: George Washington never technically removed his membership and name from his local Church rolls at Pohick where his parents had attended and raised him all of his life;

      >> FACT-24: George Washington also always had a warm affinity in his heart for his neighbor and sometimes pastor Mason "Parson" Weems - who was forced out of the Church of England for supporting Washington and the American cause;

        ** Not surprisingly, it cost Parson Weems his credentials, his income and invalidated his education that he had traveled to England to receive from the Church of England there.

        ** In the process of losing his source of income, he also lost the family farm he had inherited;

        ** Parson Weems, in scrambling to make a living in the meantime, became a "traveling evangelist" like a circuit-riding preacher . . . and wrote little pamphlets on the sins of the day!

        ** Washington, however, approved for Parson Weems to write a book about him just before Washington died (suddenly without warning) and it became the BEST SELLER in three centuries:

        ** God honored Parson Weems for DOING THE RIGHT THING!

        ** Weems was bankrupt at mid-life, but very rich by and by! "Thanks George! President, general, Parishioner, Neighbor and . . . friend!"

      >> FACT-25: George Washington died a Baptized Bible Baptist!

    George Washington takes Communion with Morristown Presbyterian;

    During George Washington's stay at Arnold’s Tavern, Washington, at War with the King-Head of the Church of England, visited Reverend Timothy Johnes and inquired as to whether he could join the congregation in its semi-annual celebration of the Lord’s Supper even though he had not officially joined the Presbyterian Church.

    Reverend Johnes simply replied, “Most certainly, ours is not the Presbyterian but the Lord’s table, and we hence give the Lord’s invitation to all his followers of whatever denomination.”

    Because the Meeting House was being used as a Small Pox hospital at the time for Washington's soldiers, the Communion Service was held in the orchard behind the Parsonage, which stood on Whippany Road, present day Morris Street at the site of the Mid-Town Shopping Plaza.

    Indeed, during the first several months of 1777, because the Meeting House was the Military Hospital, the congregation regularly conducted church services in the orchard, often bundled up and carrying foot warmers as protection against the chilling blasts of winter.

    Accounts of the Communion depicted in the “Communion Window” have been called in to question by some historians, who cite the absence of any reference to the event in Washington’s Diaries.

    The late Phillip Hoffman, who was one of the purchasers of the Arnold Tavern property in 1863, took it upon himself to collect and preserve items of interest relating to the tavern and Washington’s stay there.

    In 1903, he took the time to commit his findings to print and relates first person accounts of the Communion. The accounts passed down through generations of prominent local families from some of those who actually took part in the event appear to confirm beyond any reasonable doubt that Washington did partake in the event.

    In one case, the great granddaughter of Reverend Johnes, who was living in Morristown at an advanced age in 1898, stated,

      “It has always been a tradition in our family that Washington took the communion with the church in a hollow back of the parsonage….”

    It should be noted that the English artist that crafted the window depicted the old Meeting House, which probably would not have been visible from the orchard, in stone rather than wood, because English churches of that day were constructed of stone.




A BRIEF HISTORICAL SKETCH

    Our History The Presbyterian Church in Morristown

    The following links provide more detailed historical information:

    History of The Presbyterian Church in Morristown The Church's Historical Timeline A Walk through the Symbolism in Our Church Our Historic Graveyard Stained Glass Windows

    In 1733, some members of the Presbyterian Church in Whippany decided to gather for worship as a congregation in West Hanover, (now Morristown.) Five years later, in 1738, this new church received a charter issued by King George II of England. In 1742, the congregation called the Reverend Timothy Johnes as pastor. During his Pastorate, the first church building was erected, enlarged and later used as a hospital when a smallpox epidemic broke out during the Revolutionary War.

    At about the same time, George Washington received the Sacrament of Holy Communion during an outdoor service. In 1794, during the closing years of Mr. Johnes' long ministry, a second, larger colonial structure was built.Washington Communion

    By 1840, a social, theological and leadership controversy split the congregation. One faction left and founded the South Street Presbyterian Church in 1841. The congregation that remained on the Green became known as The First Church and built the Chapel in 1869 as a Session House and the existing Church on the Green in 1893-94.

    During the early 1900's, a cooperation between the two congregations began to grow. In 1925, at the retirement of Dr. Bennett, pastor of The First Church, the two congregations joined together and formed The Presbyterian Church in Morristown. Dr. James Howard, pastor of the South Street Church led the reunited congregation as one congregation.

    Gathering thereafter as one congregation at the Church on the Green, the members established offices and educational facilities in the South Street building and, in 1948, renamed it the Parish House. In 1960, an Austin Organ was installed in the sanctuary of the Church on the Green and, in 1995, the organ was substantially enhanced. The organ now houses 3,370 pipes and 76 ranks.

    Throughout its history, this congregation has demonstrated its concern for the community, both here and abroad, by establishing and funding organizations that provide care for people. This congregation has a rich history of worship, study and service to which God still calls us all. May that call also come to you. 1773 - The Boston Tea Party occurs. Our congregation prays for the Situation;

    1775 - The American Revolution begins and continues until 1783;

    1775 - From the beginning, our Church house is used as a hospital during the war by General George Washington;

    1776 - Our congregation must now worship outdoors to allow for the wounded soldiers who now fill the facility;

    1777 - While nearby (close to Valley Forge) George Washington worships with us, and takes communion in the 'Orchard Sanctuary' of the nine-acre property, The Lord's supper Served by our pastor, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Johnes.

    1779 - The Continental Army is encamped in Morristown for a second time from December, 1779 to June, 1780.

    1780 - During this time, General Washington declared St. Patrick’s Day a holiday for his great bravery and Christian Mission work, honor also his Irish troops.

    1789 - George Washington is inaugurated as the first President of the U.S.

    ** One of his first presidential acts is to establish Thanksgiving Day. The first national General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church is convened. (The event is depicted in a stained glass window in our Sanctuary.)

    ** The George Washington communion stained glass window is installed in the sanctuary

    1994 - The Rev. Timothy Johnes dies at the age of 78 - after pastoring the Morristown Presbyterian Church for 52 years - his death the result of a fall from his sleigh during the winter.

    * The Church still functions as of AD - 2010

In 1960, an Austin Organ was installed in the sanctuary of the Church on the Green and, in 1995, the organ was substantially enhanced. The organ now houses 3,370 pipes and 76 ranks.

    Throughout its history, this congregation has demonstrated its concern for the community, both here and abroad, by establishing and funding organizations that provide care for people. This congregation has a rich history of worship, study and service to which God still calls us all.

    May that call also come to you.

    The Presbyterian Church in Morristown by Frederick B. Cobbett

    The first group of Presbyterians who settled in the County of Morris met at Whippany in the early part of the 18th centu-ry. This primitive village on the banks of the Whippanong Riv-er was in Hanover Township, which township embraced a far greater extent of country, even extending to and constituting a part of Hunterdon County.

    The territory inhabited by this con-gregation covered what is now Whippany, Chatham, Madison, Parsippany and Morristown. The movement for the establish-ment of a separate parish in Morristown took place in the 1720’s, or possibly a few years earlier, but it is not known defi-nitely when.

    The desire of the people living in or near to Mor-ristown (then called West Hanover) for a separate parish was so great that a lot was cast by the members of the whole parish at Whippany as to whether there should be a division.

    This lot being cast on 1733 it was found not to favor the division; de-spite this, however, the members of the congregation residing in Morristown (West Hanover) “disregarded the lot,” seceded from the parent church in Whippany, and continued their en-deavors to bring the new parish into being.

    The Synod of Phila-delphia, before whom the affairs of Hanover were brought stat-ed that it “looked upon the practice of submitting of congrega-tional affairs to the decision of the lot to be unwarrantable, inas-much as lots are only warrantably used to decide matters that can’t be otherwise determined in a rational way; particularly by applying to the higher judicatories.”

    The Synod then after deliberation considered it advisable for the people of Morristown (West Hanover) “to join themselves with the congregations of East Hanover and Basking Ridge un-til they as well as the said neighbouring congregations, be more able to subsist of themselves separately.

    Yet in the meantime, as the case now stands with that people, if reunion between East and West Hanover be found impracticable, according to our above advice, the Synod judge that the people of West Hanover be left to their liberty to erect themselves into a separate congre-gation.

    Withal we earnestly obtest and beseech, that nothing bedone in that affair that may have a tendency to hurt the inter-est of religion in those places so far as in them lies.”

    Minutes of Synod of Philadelphia, September 21, 1733.On September 24, 1733 Rev. John Nutman represented to the Synod the “great difficulty he was under as to his continuing as pastor of the congregation of East Hanover if they be al-lowed to erect themselves into a separate congregation.”

    Syn-od considering the same “did earnestly recommend it to the Presbytery of East Jersey to endeavor to prevail upon the peo-ple of West Hanover and East Hanover to agree upon condi-tions of reunion at least for a while until they be better able to subsist apart,” but if not it was the Synod’s judgment that Mr. Nutman be

    granted dismission upon his application for the same.On September 24, 1735 according to the minutes of Synod “the West part of Hanover having applied to the synod for the ordination of Mr. Cleverly, the Synod do order it to be left to the Presbytery of Philadelphia.” No record of any action by that Presbytery appears, and Mr. Cleverly was not ordained pastor, but did continue to preach for some years.

    The Committee of Synod met at Hanover on July 26, 1738 and upon conclusion that the people of Morristown (West Hanover) had become much stronger it was “judged that said western people may be a separate society by themselves.” This decision and report was ratified by the Synod on May 24, 1739. For a period of three or four years there is no record of any of the doings of the society, which brings this story to the arrival of Parson Johnes, the first pastor.

    Timothy Johnes was of Welsh descent, born in Southampton on May 24, 1717, and the entry made in the book kept by him is this: “The Record of the church in the Town of Morris, from the first erection and Founding of it there; and, under Christ, as Collected, and Setled, and Watered (in much weak-ness) by Timo. Johnes, Pastor; who first came Aug’t 13, 1742, stayed 6 Sab. & then fetched my Family and was ordained Feby. 1742-3. (1742 till after Equinox.)” Dr. Johnes was

    pastor until his death on September 17, 1794. In 1783, Mr. Johnes received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Yale College. Dr. Johnes was a trustee of the College of New Jersey.

    The Rev. Timothy Johnes in 1747 became the owner of a tract of land of nine acres on the north side of Morris Street. On that site was erected the home occupied by him for a great many years, and in the year 1893 long after it had passed out of the Johnes family, it became the home of Memorial Hospi-tal, until a new building was erected in 1907 when the old Manse or Parsonage was moved across Morris Street to another location.

    The first charter creating the parish as an official body recites “WHEREAS, Sundry of our loving Subjects of the Presbyte-rian Persuasion Inhabitants of and about the Township of Morris, within our Colony of New Jersey, by their humble petition presented to our Trusty and well beloved Jonathan Belcher, Esq.,

    our Captain General and Commander in Chief of our Province of New Jersey and Vice Admiral in the same, shewing * * that the most advantageous support of religion among them necessarily requires that some persons should be incorporated as Trustees for the community * * to enable the Petitioners to erect and repair public buildings for the Wor-ship of God, etc.”

    In consequence of the petition so presented the said Governor on September 8, 1756 granted a charter to this church in the name of “George the Second, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith” under the corporate name of the TRUSTEES OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN MORRISTOWN.

    At a meeting of the congregation so established by the Char-ter of 1756, held in the meeting house on April 24th, 1788, new trustees were elected, Silas Condict, John Mills, Jonathan Ford, Benjamin Lindsley, Richard Johnson, Joseph Lewis and James Smith.

    On the 27th, the trustees assumed the corporate name of “THE TRUSTEES OF THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AT MORRISTOWN,” and chose as their common seal, the device and impression of which was a Sheaf of Wheat. By this choice of a new name, the earlier corporation as well as the corporate name under the Governor Belcher charter passed out of existence.

    The reasons for the creation of this new corporate body were the new requirements occasioned by the War for Independence, and the necessity to conform to the provi-sions of an act of the Council and General Assembly, passed March 6, 1786, which re-established the charters granted before that time by the Government of Great Britain.

    An Act of the legislature passed June 13, 1799 confirmed those charter rights, and also ruled that real estate held under and by virtue of the old charters should be vested in the new corporations created in the place thereof.

    ACQUISITION OF LANDA t a meeting of the Trustees January 18, 1758, it was an-nounced that certain lands had been conveyed to the Trustees which were distinguished by separate and distinct descriptions: part of the land was called the Parsonage Land extending from the east-erly edge of Morristown Green to as far as the present Pine Street, and bounded north by Morris Street and south by South Street.

    Pre-sent at the meeting were Benjamin Hatheway, president; Benjamin Bayles, Thomas Kent, Benjamin Coe, Charles Howell, Sam’l Robarts and Henry Primrose; and then quoting, “it was agreed that as the President had heretofore given a Deed for the Parsonage to Messrs.

    Mathew Lum, Thomas Cleverly and Timothy Mills that it might now fall under the Priviledges of the Charter, and it was agreed that said Parsonage Land by a Quit Claim be Conveyed to the President that said Lands by the President might be Directly Conveyed to the Trustees.”

    The other portion of the land was called the Meeting House Land and included the Morristown Green or Common, and the burying ground as far as Spring Street. “It was also agreed to take a Quit Claim Deed for the Meeting House Land which is now in the hands of Joseph Prudden & the Heirs of John Lindsley Deceased. Both of the town of Morris.”

    The earliest headstone now remaining bears the inscription: “Here Lyes ye Body of Martha, Wife of Abraham Parson Aged about 23 years, died Jan. 2nd, 1731.”

    It was on the Meeting House Land that the first meeting house had been built in 1729, a few feet easterly of where the present church edifice now stands, before any title whatsoever for it had been ac-quired, and actually before, the parish had asked for a separate Charter from the Synod.

    It was this building that was used by the Army for the care and comfort of soldiers during the epidemic of small pox which was so prevalent during the year 1777.

    This was not the only building in the little country village lying nestled up here in the hills of Morris County that was so used then, for the meeting house of the Baptist Church of Morristown, then located on the pre-sent site of the Bamberger store [now Century 21] was also con-verted into a hospital for use by the Army in caring for the sol-diers who wore the buff and the blue.

    WASHINGTON ATTENDS COMMUNION

    The Reverend Timothy Johnes was once visited by General Washington during one of his encampments with the Army in Morristown, demanding to be informed whether he, as a communicant of another denomination would be admitted at a communion service of the Presbyterian Church.

    Parson Johnes promptly assured the General that it was not the Presbyterian table but the Lord’s table, and he would be glad to welcome him and administer the communion to him. Accordingly at next communion service General Washington was in attendance at the service held in the orchard.

    This first meeting house continued to be the house of public worship until November 26, 1795, on which date the first service was held in the newly built second meeting house, erect-ed a few yards to the west. Deliberations for the construction of the second meeting house were begun in 1788, but the actual work did not begin until 1791, and the house was ready by 1795.

    This second edifice was used for worship until February 12th, 1893, on which day was held the last service of worship in that building. The upper portion of the steeple of the second building, about twelve to fifteen feet of it, has been re-tained, and is now located in the rear of the old burying ground, adjoining the present building.

    Razing of the second edifice was begun shortly after the last service was held therein. The corner stone of the present building was laid on July 20th, 1893, with appropriate services conducted by the Rev. John Mac-naughtan, the pastor of the church. During the work of con-struction services were held in the Chapel.

    FOUNDING OF THE SECOND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

    A t a meeting of the First Presbyterian Church held December 30th, 1840, upon a resolution dated December 19th, it was decided “in the opinion of this meeting the faith and doctrine of this church will be better promoted by a division of the present congregation into two dis-tinct and separate congregations, to be called the first and second con-gregations in Morristown.” This resolution was passed and adopted, and the Second Presbyterian Church began its life.

    The first service of the newly created parish was held in the upper room of the old Academy on Sunday, February 21, 1841, in which place the meetings continued to be held until the 14th day of October of the same year when the new house of worship was dedicated and the pastor, Rev. Orlando L. Kirtland, was

    installed. On May 17th, 1841, at a meeting held in the Academy the corporate name was chosen, viz. “THE TRUSTEES OF THE SECOND CONGREGATION OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AT MORRISTOWN.” At this same meeting the trustees were elected consisting of Dr. John B. Johnes, Ephraim Young, Stephen Vail, Lewis B. Stiles, Jonathan H. Smith, Francis Child and B. O. Canfield.

    On the same day the certificate of incorporation was executed by these same trustees. On July 14th, 1841 the first building site was purchased of John W. Poinier and wife, on South Street which is the same lot now occupied by the parish house.

    Prior to the date of the deed, however, the corner stone of the first meeting house of the Second Presbyterian Church was laid on May 27th, 1841 with appropriate ceremonies, Rev. Alfred Chester giving the address. On January 10th, 1877 at five-thirty P.M. , fire broke out in the church building and during a snow storm which set in about the same hour, the building was entirely destroyed.

    On July 12th, 1878 the pre-sent brown stone building was formally dedicated. During the period of construction the services were held regularly, at first in the chapel of the public school on Maple avenue, and afterward, until the completion of the building, in the hall of the Library and Lyceum.

    By an act of the New Jersey Legislature passed February 28th, 1863 the corporate name of “THE SECOND CONGREGATION OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AT MORRISTOWN” was changed to “THE SOUTH STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AT MORRISTOWN,” P. L. N. J., 1862, pp.69.

    THE MARKET STREET MISSION

    O n March 18, 1889 the mission house established on Market Street by the South Street Presbyterian Church was formally opened, and has been known since that time as The Market Street Mission.

    In charge of the services at the opening was Jacob L. Sutphen, Chairman of the committee to organize the work.

    Identified with him in these services were Rev. John Macnaughtan; Rev. Andrew M. Sherman, of the Congregational Church; Rev. Addison Parker, of the Baptist Church; Rev. and Mrs. Simmons, of East Orange; George E. Voorhees, Major Henry M. Dalrymple. Daniel V. McCollum, E. A. Graves, Dr. Frederick W. Owen, Joseph F Randolph, T. B. Nutting, William L. R. Haven, D. B. Hatch, Frank D. Stanley, General Secretary of the Y.M.C..A.; Dr. Joseph R. Hoffman, organist; and John B. Vreeland andJ. Frank Lindsley, ushers. The Rev. Dr. Erdman, pastor of the South Street Presbyterian Church, was not present at this opening service of the Mission, since he and Mrs. Erdman were on a pilgrimage to the Ho-ly Land and Egypt.

    THE REUNION

    I n 1925 the First Presbyterian Church and the South Street Presby terian Church were merged into one corporate body. This merger was accomplished by the proposal of similar resolutions recommending the same and the concurrence therein by the two church societies, in separate congregational meetings, simultaneously held in their respec-tive meeting houses on June 15th, 1925.

    The resolutions were then presented to the Morris & Orange Presbytery on June 16th, 1925 at a meeting held in the South Street Presbyterian Church, and upon being ratified, the merger was thus made complete. By the terms of the reso-lution, the name chosen and so used now was “THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN MORRISTOWN.” The certificate properly executed by Samuel H. Gillespie, President of the Board of Trustees of The First Presbyterian Church, and by Willard W. Cutler, President of the Board of Trustees of the South Street Presbyterian Church, and dated June 23, 1925 was properly recorded.

    SESSION HOUSE

    I n 1816 the First Presbyterian Church built a brick session house on the same site as that now occupied by the Chapel. This Session House was in use until the late 1860’s when it was removed and the present Chapel, also called the Lecture Room, was built as it now stands.

    This Chapel was used from the time of its construction in 1869, as the Sunday School room, and for other religious and social occasions until the merger, when the activities were thereafter held in the several parlors and auditorium of the South Street Presbyteri-an Church. On June 6th, 1948 the Chapel was dedicated, and by new decorations made adaptable for the holding of vesper services, weddings and funeral obsequies.

    The front wall of the newly deco-rated Chapel is adorned with two marble plaques taken from the South Street Building. These two plaques which were originally presented to the South Street Presbyterian Church by Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan W. Roberts, represent two Bible scenes and characters, one Naomi, Ruth and Orpah, and the other one that of Hagar and Ishmael.

    MORRISTOWN GREEN

    I n 1816 the Trustees of the First Presbyterian Church executed a deed to the Trustees of Morristown Green conveying to the said trustees by a deed of joint tenancy, the land which from the early part of the 18th century was known and called “Morristown Green: or the Common.

    This deed provided that no dwelling house, store, shop, barn or any other building of any kind should be thereafter erected on the aforesaid Green or Common except a meeting house, a Court house and Jail and a market house.

    In 1867 conflicting claims between the Trustees of the First Presbyterian Church and the Trustees of Morristown Green grew up, and after a conference the Trustees of the Green, by reason of an agreement, executed a deed to the first Presbyterian Church, restoring the property to the Trustees of the Church as it was held in 1816;

    the Trustees of the Church immediately executed a new deed to the Trustees of Morris-town Green on the understanding, and the deed so stated, that “no shop, dwelling house, warehouse, store, market house, engine house, court house, town hall, school house, church, place of public meeting or worship or any other building shall at any time hereafter be erected on any of the hereby granted premises, but the same shall be forever devoted to and used for the purpose of a public common or park.”

This organi-zation later became the Family Service of Morris County.Also in the 1800’s, the women of the church founded the Italian Mission to instruct recent Italian immigrants in the language and culture of their new home. Today that organization is known as the Neighborhood House.

    In 1983 the church offered the Old Manse, now known as How-ard House, to be used as a temporary shelter for the Homeless. Named The Morris Shelter, it could house fourteen people over-night, and was supported by many churches in the area. The Morris Shelter has grown and expanded its mission. It has moved to much larger quarters on West Hanover Avenue and is now known as Homeless Solutions.

    At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour!

    I do believe Jesus is the Saviour and I know I have eternal Life!

    I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life.

    DOCTRINAL DISCLAIMER:

    Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Conservative Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provides web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA, ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, TALK-RADIO-REPUBLICANS, ETC., – seeking to be an outlet for many CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE VOICES who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST ABOVE ALL!

    Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

    We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

    In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:

    Be Blessed!
