All our programs at First Presbyterian Church are a success only because of the people who recognize the value of their time and talents. We often need assistance in the many areas we serve. Please check back often to this page and see what mission opportunities and service opportunities are upcoming. We would love to explore how we may serve together. Thank you! 












We need your help!

Each Sunday, our online service involves not only Rev. Pete and Shannon, but a team of people  who work behind the scenes to essentially direct and produce each service. We are now searching  for some additional help to assist us in the care and development of our weekly online worship  services. We are searching for people who would be interested in the following areas:

  • Worship Team Intern

    Working directly with our Worship Team in the process of producing

    and directing our services. We are searching for people who would be willing to learn how we create, prepare, and then implement our services. We are searching for people who have a background or interest in streaming technology. They would participate in our weekly broadcast creation and distribution, both live and pre-pate, participate in weekly planning meetings and contribute to the ongoing planning discussions to expand our current platform. We are looking for someone who is a learner and go-getter, listens well, steps up when called upon to help and has a discerning eye for detail as to what will look good in a final production. If you have an empathy for how the community and the world will receive our message, have a background in technology, helping us to leverage the best technology for the job at hand, have skills and experience or are willing to learn about video streaming concepts, video streaming software such as Streamyard, have onland platform content delivery and management (e.g. Facebook, YouTube), experience with either Windows or Mac Platforms and experience in camera and microphone setups, we could really use your help!



  • Sound and Film Editor

    We are also searching for someone to assist the Team in the preparation of some portions of our services that involve the editing of sound and film. Having direct experience is needed at this time. The person would need to have experience using software such as Adobe Premiere Pro.



We work in a team environment, so the person needs to be comfortable working in this type of environment. For people who may be curious about working with the worship team, it would be helpful to have someone with some background and experience, but someone who is truly interested and open to learning and participating would be valued. If interested, please reach out to us via email at fpcortech@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our Thanksgiving tradition

Growing from serving 50 in 2011 to 250 in 2017, the Thanksgiving Day meal at First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford has become a tradition for the community. Days are spent preparing a feast for those looking for a hot meal and to spend time with others. The community comes together including the Boy Scouts and High School Students to donate food, service and love to participate in this special event. We are always in need of volunteers. 


Please call the church office in October or early November if you would like to be a part of this endeavor.

Our Christmas Day tradition

Please call In November or early December if you would like to be a part of this endeavor.
