History of the Readington Reformed Church
As the Dutch spread westward through New Jersey, they brought their church with them. The Readington Reformed Church was one of the churches established, and began serving the community in 1719. The present building was dedicated in 1865, and the sanctuary was refurbished in 2007.

This congregation is part of the Reformed Church in America, the oldest Protestant denomination with a continuous ministry in the United States. Growing out of the Reformation in Europe, this denomination, with its roots in the New Testament, was brought to this country by the Dutch. The first Reformed church in the US was established in 1628 in New Amsterdam, which is now called New York City.
