Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them;
for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”
Children and adults enjoy Sunday School every Sunday morning, mid September through mid June. During Sunday School, children learn God’s sacred story as told through Scripture in a nurturing, interactive and safe environment. Our curriculum is age appropriate and taught by volunteers committed to sharing God’s love and the gift of Jesus Christ with our youngest friends.
Sunday School Classes
Our classes are broken up by age: Pre-k through 1st grade; 2nd through 5th grade; middle school, high school and adults. Our younger grades learn the same lesson each week, which means that many siblings go home having heard the same story in Sunday School.
8th Grade Confirmation
Our 8th graders study together on a journey towards confirmation—when they get to profess their faith and join the church as full members. During confirmation, we invite young people to explore the meaning of their baptism and their participation at the Lord's Supper, as well as to learn about church polity, stewardship, spiritual practices, worship, and mission. Confirmation is an exploration of how each student might finish the sentence: This I believe…
High School Sunday School
High Schoolers meet weekly in the youth room, to study the day's lectionary passages guided by the Feasting on the Word Curriculum. This curriculum provides opportunities for youth to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. In response to God's amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ's disciples. More often than not, the Scripture studied in this Sunday school class will align with the Scripture read and preached on during worship.
We ask that each child that attends Sunday School registers using this link. Your registration ensures we have all the necessary contact and allergy information.
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
Youth ministry at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury celebrates our youth and young people. The hope of our youth ministry programs is to reveal God's love to all who join us, to create a safe and fun community for fellowship, learning, and growth, to equip and challenge our youth to follow Jesus out in the world, and to share God's Word in life-giving and relevant ways.
Youth ministry is not a side program to the church, but at the heart of the church's faithful expression of God's love and care. Likewise, we believe children, teens and young adults are not the future of the church but insist instead that they are a vital part of the church right now.
Youth Group at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury brings young people together for faith, fellowship, food and fun. Whether we're studying the bible, serving the larger community, or running through the church playing games, we're always building relationships, engaging relevant topics, and growing in faith.
We have two youth groups, Middle School and High School. Some special events and activities are combined, but most Sundays we meet separately. Check the church calendar for upcoming youth events.

Youth Group Mission and Service
Our youth express their faith by giving of themselves for the benefit of others through mission and service projects. Our youth sort food for the Thanksgiving baskets. They also assist with the Annual Strawberry Festival, Vacation Bible School, and the Nativity Processional.
Our middle and high school youth have a Summer Mission project where they help lead summer camps with UrbanPromise Trenton. Email Pastor Hannah if you or your child is interested in participating.
