Prior to 1756, Presbyterians had to travel from sparsely-populated Princeton to Lawrenceville, Pennington, and Kingston for services. To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Presbyterian presence in Princeton, the Witherspoon Street Church and Nassau Presbyterian have hosted a year of special celebrations and projects that will culminate in a joint closing worship service on Sunday, September 24, at McCarter Theater, the same venue where they kicked off their celebratory year.

The service will feature music, song, dance, and spoken word, with Witherspoon Street Church’s Men’s Gospel Choir and combined choirs from Nassau, Witherspoon Street, and Princeton Theological Seminary. Also featured will be a liturgical dance ensemble directed by Maria Potts, and the People’s Verse Speaking Choir led by director Cecelia B. Hodges. Rick Ufford-Chase, who served at the Presbyterian Church as the moderator of the 216th General Assembly, the church’s highest elected office, from 2004-’06, will preach on the day’s theme, "Partners in Faith – the Journey Continues."
