Trinity Presbyterian Church (originally Trinity United Presbyterian Church), 650 Pascack Rd., Paramus, NJ, was organized on November 19, 1961 as a new church development of the then Presbytery of Jersey City. There were 171 charter members.
During the early years the congregation worshiped at a number of sites in Paramus including a firehouse and the Glen school. All of the day-to-day meetings of the church were held in people’s homes where we became known as “the church of the Bibles and the folding chairs”.
