Hi First Pres Kids!
First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford welcomes families with children of all ages. We offer nursery care in our Karen Kaiser Parish House during the 10:00 am Sunday service. We offer a fun and engaging Sunday School program for children in Pre-K through 8th. First Pres Kids meets during the 10:00 am Sunday service, dismissed after the children’s message. We use a theme based curriculum to teach God’s Word in a relevant way. It is our goal to help children grow in wisdom, faith, & friendship. Throughout the year we offer fun activities for the whole family.
First Pres Kids Sunday School News: Our theme for December is COMPASSION. God’s compassion for the people He created led to the greatest act of love the world has ever seen. God sent His only Son to make us right with Him. This month, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we focus on sharing God’s gift of compassion, allowing His love to flow through us and his light to shine on the world. Let’s show others that light is available even when the darkness is overwhelming! Our memory verse is “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIrV
