Founded in the 1920’s in the midst of a residential neighborhood in Ridgewood, New Jersey, St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church has grown to be a congregation characterized by worship according to The Book of Common Prayer, a vibrant Church School for young people, a love of music represented by three parish choirs for people of all ages, an extensive outreach ministry to people in need, and lively fellowship events throughout the year.

Many of the members are families with school age children; many are adults without children at home. Political views range from conservative to liberal, and the majority of the members grew up in other religious traditions. Normal Sunday attendance is about 20 at 8:00 am, about 150 to 200 at 10:00 am, and about 50 to 90 at the 10:00 am chapel service for children from pre-K to second grade.

I attended the first time because an old high school friend sings in the choir, but I found the congregation so welcoming that I've been back numerous times since then -- and hope my young granddaughter will ultimately play a role in the St. Elizabeth's Christmas Pageant!
