Sunday School

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 – 10:00 am, Sundays

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.

A variety of learning techniques help children learn about their faith while having an enjoyable experience incorporating games, music, stories and art. Parents may meet their children after the worship service.

*Covid protocol: the safety of our children is our top priority. We will be holding Sunday School outside of Westminster Hall, for as long as the weather will allow, or inside Westminster Hall, fully masked and with proper ventilation.

Sign ups required for Sunday School.
