Dear Friends,


Due to the rapidly increasing numbers of COVID cases, we are suspending in-person worship until further notice. We recognize that we have just started conducting in person worship in our Sanctuary at 8:30 am, last Sunday. We are blessed with our on-line service on Sundays at 10 am. We recognize that this decision is very disappointing for those who find in-person worship is vital to their spiritual journeys. It is our hope to keep people healthy and safe, while providing an option for worship during these trying times.  


Our offices will continue to be open and we will follow our current schedule. I will seek to provide pastoral support as called upon. Our Deacons will continue to support people in need. Our Session continues to provide the best leadership possible in these very unique times.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Peter Wilkinson

A place for community, A place of God's love

At First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford we, most importantly, want to welcome you with love. As a church located in the center of town, we view ourselves as a part of your world. As you walk down Park Avenue, we realize we hold a presence with our stained glass and historic brown stones. But what you may not yet know, is that beyond our many red doors, is a community that is there for you. One who extends open hearts and sincere love. Jesus intended for us to love each other, so simple our calling. And we have decided to do just that. So join us, walk on in, and let's meet face to face. Hear our pipe organ, meet our families, share in our joy. There is a warm welcome here.
