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 NewsOur theme for January is  RESPONSIBILITY. The psalmist wrote, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." God is the author of creation, and God has entrusted us to care for and cultivate it. We do that by taking responsibility. From the work we need to accomplish to people we meet to the words we use; life is filled with moments where we can decide to reflect God's character, take responsibility, and use what we have wisely. This month, we'll focus on following through and doing what needs to be done so we can point others to Jesus, the one who took ultimate responsibility for us and made it possible for us to be with God forever. Our memory verse is "Suppose you can be trusted with something very little. Then you can also be trusted with something very large." Luke 16: 10A NIRV 


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.
