Support and Care

At First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford we are here to serve God and serve our community. We take this to heart as we offer activities and education that are enriching to Spirit, Mind, and Body. We love to sing and share in music. Our children love to play in our spacious gymnasium as the parents and grandparents visit and share in each others lives. We are heavily involved in giving to and caring for others as well as providing top-notch entertainment for the surrounding area. Our Labor Day involvement has been a hit in the neighborhood, and we love to meet the people we share our streets with. So, take a look at our events and consider attending or even volunteering. It takes all of our gifts and talents to celebrate oneness!  We can't wait to meet you or see you again.

    7:30pm at Park tavern

    I am exploring different ways of providing time to have casual conversation. I will be sitting down at Ara Coffee Shop (6 Ames Avenue, Rutherford) beginning at 10:30. Join me for a cup of coffee and conversation regarding anything that might be going on in our lives and the world. 

    In the evening, I will be going over to Park Tavern (250 Park Ave, East Rutherford) beginning at 7:30 pm. I will be at a table or a booth enjoying the opportunity to meet and talk with anyone who would join me. I have no agenda for these gatherings. I simply want to make myself available. If you would like for me to meet you (and a friend) please come and join me. ~ Pete



    Daniel Umholtz, a young, dynamic organist, will present an organ concert in the chapel at Rutherford’s First Presbyterian Church, “the church on The Triangle,” on Sunday, November 12, at 3. He will be playing a wide variety of music that will display the organ’s array of sounds in the fabulous acoustics of the chapel. The organ, installed three years ago, is state-of- the-art digital made by Walker Technical, the premier maker of digital instruments. Walker Technical is also partially underwriting the concert.
