Hi First Pres Families!

We have set up a fun and exciting way for First Pres Kids to stay connected! Join us Sundays at 11:00 a.m. on Zoom for our virtual Sunday School class. After we open with quick hellos, our wonderful Music Director Shannon will spend some time performing music with the kids. (Bring along an instrument if you'd like. DIY is great too!)  We'll then chat and do a demonstration/activity that can later be done at home (Please send pics if you do! I'd love to share with the congregation as everyone misses your smiling faces!)

Click below to sign up. We will be in touch with the details.

First Pres Kids, Welcome

First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford welcomes families with children of all ages. We offer a fun and engaging Sunday School program for children in Pre-K through 8th. First Pres Kids meets after the 10 am Sunday service on Zoom. 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 November is GRATITUDE. Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, "Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus." (NIrV). It’s pretty clear. Giving thanks is something God wants us to do. No matter what happens, we can be thankful for Jesus and God’s gift of salvation. Bottom Line: You always have something to be grateful for. When life is hard or even if life is normal, finding why you should be thankful can be difficult, especially for kids. We pray that as kids think about this bottom line, they’ll remember they can always be thankful to God for sending Jesus to be our Savior. 


Hope to see you soon,

We are looking to expand our program with the addition of more age appropriate classes. In order to make this possible, more volunteers are needed. Any time commitment is appreciated.

If you're are interested in volunteering, please contact me.

Bee Blessing & Tie-dye

First Pres Kids had a great time during the annual Bee Blessing & Honey Harvest in July.

It was perfect summer day for learning about bees, harvesting honey, and tie-dying t-shirts!

Peace & Love Garden

First Pres Kids are enjoying Spring! 

During Sunday School, they painted a new sign for the Peace & Love Garden, located at the church manse.
