In 1773 a new church building was erected in the second cemetery, which had been opened in 1738, on the southwest corner of Vroom street and Bergen Avenue. It fronted Bergen avenue, about the, center of the east side of the lot. The stone above the door of the first church was placed above the door of the second building with a stone beneath with the inscription "Her bowt in Het yaer 1773." Both are now over the door on the south side of the present church building on, Bergen and Highland Avenues of which the corner stone was laid August 26th, 1841. This site is part of the land originally reserved for the pastor's use. In the walls of the present church are many of the sand stone blocks from glacial bowlders that were formerly built into the walls of the earlier church buildings. The third church was dedicated July 14th, 1842.
