I'm New


The mission of Manasquan Presbyterian Church is to touch people's lives with the love of Jesus Christ.  Being richly blessed with many talents and resources, we encourage all our members to be involved in some meaningful form of ministry for Christ’s sake in their sphere of influence.


If you're new to Manasquan Presbyterian Church, you probably have some questions. Here are the ones we hear most frequently.

What types of worship services do you offer?
We offer 3 distinct Sunday services.  Each has its own personality but they all feature scripture, prayer, music and a Bible based message. Communion is served every week at the 8AM service.  The 9:15AM service is the most traditional with choir and special music.  The 10:30AM service is our contemporary offering. 

Do I need to be a member to attend worship, participate in a growth group or serve?
All are welcome to worship, grow and serve alongside us. You are encouraged to participate in all ministries without being a member.

Is there a dress code?
Not at all.  Please come as you are most comfortable.  We are interested in what’s on the inside, not the outside!

Are there programs/activities for youth?
Our programs focus on relationship building with each other and with God- in a nonjudgmental, welcoming and fun environment.  We offer opportunities for athletes, artists, musicians, gamers – everyone - to discover, develop and celebrate their unique gifts and help them find ways to share these gifts with the hurting world.  Visit our MPC Student page for more information.

How do I get involved?
There are dozens of growth/service groups and studies to get involved in at Manasquan Presbyterian Church.  We encourage all who walk through our doors to explore and exercise their God given gifts, talents and abilities.  Explore our website or contact Dave Wilenta, Director of Congregational Life, to get involved today!

Back in the year 1842, there was only one church in the vicinity of Manasquan--the Quaker Meeting House, almost a mile west of the village. However, in that year, the local Presbyterians, Methodist Episcopalians, Methodist Protestants, and Baptists banded together and erected the Union Church on the site, which now forms part of the Atlantic View Cemetery.  Read more...
