The First Presbyterian Church of Newark is a friendly, service-orientated congregation with a good relationship with the city. Pastor Garrett Yamada says the church's unique location at Cedar Boulevard and Newark Boulevard makes it the ideal space for community events, like its Easter Egg Hunt and its Safe Night Trick-or-Treating on Halloween. "It's easy to see, and it's easy to get to," Yamada says. Families, couples and senior citizens call this church home. Yamada says the church also has a large Filipino population.
