Join us in praying for Christ’s ongoing ministry at First Presbyterian Church, Cranford NJ! We will meet at 11 AM in Snyder Memorial Chapel to offer prayer and silent reflection as we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit for His church. If you can’t come to the chapel, pray wherever you are at that time and allow the Spirit to wash over us and mold us into His ministry going forward.
Caroler Choir Rehearsals Thursday Afternoons 3:30-4:15 in the Choir room on the lower level.
Caroler Choir is for children in grades 1-3. We learn to sing together and have fun while reinforcing team work, improving singing skills, develop poise, and training children as worship leaders. We sing in church once a month. Where can you get so much for so little– No tuition required!
Crusader Choir Rehearsals Thursday afternoons 4:30-5:15 in the Choir room
Crusader Choir is for children in grades 4-6. We build on the skills we have learned previously (although new comers are always welcome), adding more difficult and thought-provoking anthems. These children form the backbone of the cast for two cantatas a year, a highlight for us all.
