First Pres Kids Veterans Day cards

First Pres Kids have once again teamed up with the Mission Committee creating these beautiful Veterans Day / Thanksgiving themed cards. The cards will be delivered to our Veterans at Chestnut Hill Rehab on November 29, 2016. 

These Kids Can Cook!

Thank you Miss Lena & First Pres Kids for a great Autumn Fellowship Time. How cool to be able to explore our gifts from God in Sunday School... while cooking in our industrial kitchen! These kids are creative and know how to have fun.

Crazy Fun with Bread... This is Sunday School???

Our First Sunday School in November (topic: Service!) was loads of fun as we broke out the really stale bread and let the kids go wild (what kid isn't totally into bread wars?!). Yup, we were feeding the birds on the church lawn (service to nature!) in the most creative of ways, What a fun start to the month of giving! Don't miss out on learning about God's truths and having a great time while we do that - Sunday School is during the 10am Service after the "time with children."  See you there!

Other Recent Past Events - Take a Look!

  • holiday decorate & celebrate - kids & christmas movies!

    To kick off the 2015 Season of Gifts, a wonderful group of all ages (approx 50 people from the church & community) gathered to decorate our historic building and enjoy each other's company. We watched classic Christmas movies and many new friendships began - a great night! The tree looks great kids - good job!

  • Kids in action with Mission

    First Pres Kids worked alongside the Mission Committee this November to provide packages of care for Family Promise in Hackensack. The Mission Committee was able to deliver 150 gallon-size packs filled with daily care items/granola bar/bandaids, hand lotion/toothpaste/toothbrush/deodorant etc. to Family Promise. Great job team!

Hey Kids, great job giving to and serving others!

$1 Pizza Night

On Friday, September 23, 2016, First Pres Kids got together for a fun evening of pizza and circus/carnival themed games and activities. The children also enjoyed making their own snow cones and popcorn!

Courage in the Kitchen!

On Sunday, October 16, 2016, First Pres Kids stepped out of the classroom and into the kitchen to bake apple pies for fellowship hour. The children not only practiced service, but also courage, being called to do something that may have been out of their comfort zone. They had a great time and the pies came out delicious! A special thanks to Lena for providing us with this awesome opportunity!

First Pres Kids Halloween Costume Party

On Saturday, October 29, 2016, children came together in costume for a Halloween bash. It was a spooktacular evening of Halloween music, games, crafts, tattoos, and treats!

Happy Thanksgiving from First Pres Kids!

This November First Pres Kids showed thankfulness and honor by creating decorations during

Sunday School for the Thanksgiving Dinner event. What a beautiful job they did!

Children's Christmas Eve Service

A great experience had by all at FPC as we shared and told the Christmas story with the primary storytellers being the young people. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me….”. We sought to be true to that call. We wish you a Merry Christmas!

Thank you for helping us raise $317 for our local food pantry!

On Sunday, February 5th 2017, First Pres Kids joined churches across the country for Souper Bowl of Caring, a national movement of young people fighting hunger and poverty. Souper Bowl of Caring was created in 1990 when a group of young people, inspired by a Super Bowl Sunday prayer, wanted to do something more than celebrate a football game. As always, thank you for your support of those in need by joining us in this effort to “love our neighbors”.
