The Saint John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church has an interesting history. It was first built to cater to the Ukrainians that moved here during the beginning of the 20th Century from the Astro-Hungarian empire in search of work. The community initially visited a Greek-Catholic church, but as their numbers grew, they found a need for a church of their own. Thus with several grants and some land from a paper mill owner, a wooden church was created in 1924. Today, the church has grown massively and has been replaced by an entirely new structure with a new campus. It has a following of 220 local families which participate in prayer groups, Bible studies, Ukrainian heritage classes and choir performances.

First Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest structures and the first church of Whippany. Due to an absence of a worship place in 1718, John Richards, a local schoolmaster donated some land in order to form a suitable meeting place for worship.

However, this church maintained its strong membership base and still continues to do so. It attracts and engages members with its various educational and cultural programs like schools, fellowships, choirs, etc.
