For children age 3 through grade 5, we offer programs that build faith in the knowledge of God and the fellowship of God’s community. We offer an exciting, interactive Sunday School program along with mid-week enrichment activities.
Building Faith at the Presbyterian Church of Basking Ridge
We believe the primary goal of Sunday School is to raise children in the knowledge of God and fellowship of God’s community. Faith needs Scripture to help it grow, because there is no comprehension and meaning without content. At the Presbyterian Church of Basking Ridge, the Bible lies at the heart of all our programming.
Sunday School ~ 10:15 a.m.
Children (age 3-grade 5) begin in worship in the Sanctuary with their families. After the Message for Children, children are invited to attend our Sunday School. They will move to the chapel as a group for a Bible story, hymns, and a prayer. Then they will be separated into groups by grade for the morning’s lesson.
A variety of learning techniques help children learn about their faith while having an enjoyable experience incorporating games, music and art. Parents may meet their children in Westminster Hall after the worship service.

Our Children’s Midweek Ministry, for children ages 3 through 5th grade, begins anew on Tuesday, January 23 from 4:15 – 5:30 PM, in Westminster Hall. It includes a full hour and 15 minute experience for all children in this entire age range. Each Tuesday afternoon will include a Bible lesson, fellowship, fun, crafts, snacks and music. Your children will not want to miss it!
