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 August is CREATIVITY. When we look outside and see the beautiful world around us, we're reminded that God is SO great, powerful, and creative. From the birds flying high in the sky to the planets orbiting the sun to animals scampering around the earth, each one points to God's indescribable creativity. Jesus used creativity in how He told parables, performed miracles, and helped His followers understand more about what it means to be part of God's Kingdom. On top of that, we were created in God's image. We can solve problems, create art and music, design skyscrapers high into the sky. When we create, we reflect the image of God to the world around us. Our memory verse is "Lord you are great. You are really worthy of praise.  No one can completely understand how great you are.” PSALM 145:3, 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.
