Hello there! Thank you for stopping by our website. Feel free to check out the “New Here” page linked above where you can find the answers to all of your questions.
If you have never been to our church before, come by one of our campuses this Sunday! We would love to get to know you because we believe that each and every person is a precious child of God and each is welcome in this beloved community.
God loves you and so do we.
We look forward to meeting you!

Have questions? We have the answers!
Where are you located?
We are one church, on two campuses. The Princeton campus is located at Nassau and Vandeventer, right in the heart of downtown Princeton, across from the Princeton University campus. The Kingston campus is just three miles northeast, just off of Rte. 27. We also have an online campus that you can join by clicking here.
What time is service?
At 10:00 am, our Princeton Campus worships in person and on Facebook livestream/right here on our website!
At 10:30 am, our Kingston Campus worships in person and online via Zoom.
Where do I park?
The Kingston Campus has a plethora of parking spaces in a parking lot adjacent to the church.
The Princeton Campus is located adjacent to a Princeton Township parking lot, which is free on Sundays until 1:00 pm. Additional parking can be found on the streets in the surrounding neighborhood. There is a reserved spot for people with accessibility needs located in the parking lot adjacent to the building and on Nassau Street directly in front of the church building.
Is there something for my kids?
During worship services, our Princeton Campus provides nursery care for 0-2 year olds and Compassion Camp Sunday School for three years and up. Middle schoolers also meet during worship for Bible study. Kingston continues to meet online for now, but will start offering children's ministries upon reopening.
What are your COVID safety precautions?
We abide by John Wesley's charge to "Do no harm." All attendees are required to wear a mask, no matter their vaccination status. To ensure social distancing, we have limited capacity for in-person worship, so we do request that you sign up ahead of time. Members of the choir currently sing the hymns, as congregational attendees are encouraged to hum along.
What does a typical service look like?
The Kingston Campus services are rich in tradition but crafted with creativity, utilizing different musical styles (from folk, to contemporary, to traditional) and innovative ways of connecting with God.
The Princeton Campus includes sacred music, with an organist, handbell choir, and chancel choirs for all ages. Professional, classically trained musicians, often come to offer guest performances.
Services across both campuses typically last 60-75 minutes. They include a variety of prayers, liturgy, scripture, and a sermon. We all celebrate Holy Communion on the first week of the month.
How do I join a ministry?
A great place to get plugged into our church is through our Newcomers Group, which is offered several times throughout the year. Reach out to email@example.com to learn when the next group begins.
How do I join a small group?
Princeton UMC offers a variety of small groups, a testament to our diversity in spirituality types and places we are along our discipleship pathway. Reach out to Pastora Ashley to find a small group for you to call home.
How can I get involved in serving?
From serving meals in our weekly meal ministry to distributing diapers to new moms in need, to mission trips to Puerto Rico, we are active in serving our community. Find out how you can be the hands and feet of Christ with us by connecting with Emma today.
How do I become a member of the church?
Several times a year, we host a Newcomers Group for people who are new to us and wanting to learn more. Oftentimes, people will choose to join the church at the conclusion of this five-week hybrid course.
Baptisms can be done at any age in our UMC tradition, marking the beginning of a life-long process of growing in God's love. For babies and child baptisms, parents and sponsors commit to take on the responsibilities of nurturing their child to grow in their faith and love toward God and neighbor.
