Family Choir

Family Choir is a brand new program at First Pres. Beginning in October, 2015, parents, children, grandparents (or anyone really who would like to sing) is invited approximately once a month at 9:30am to meet in the chapel. A simple song is taught, practiced, and then sung at the 10am service. Stay tuned for our next upcoming date of Family Choir.

    Audience members are asked to bring non-perishable (unexpired) food items or monetary donations for the Rutherford Food Pantry. 

    The inspiration for this event came from "If Music Be the Food..." -- a benefit concert series created by Carol Rodland in Rochester, NY. All music performances, refreshments, and support are being donated, in accordance with the mission of the concert series, so that 100% of donations will go to the Food Pantry.

    The Church is located on the triangle in downtown Rutherford, at Park Avenue and Ridge Road. On-street parking is metered in the business district near the church and in the Kip Parking Garage. Unmetered on-street parking can be found south and east of the church. For more information contact the church office via email or phone 201-438-3569.
