Croatan Presbyterian Church

Our History

Croatan Presbyterian Church was begun in the former farming community of Croatan, outside of New Bern, NC, in 1882. The sanctuary was built in 1883 and has served the congregation as both worship and community center since that time.  As the area has changed since World War II, many new people have moved into the area, adding to the families that have been here for several generations. The congregation has a little over 100 members of all ages.
