Ministries

Jesus loves the little children.

From the time they take their first steps, we want the children in our community to know they are loved and made in the image of God. We have programs to serve the needs of each age group, offering safe places to play, explore, be creative, and learn more about God and His promises. At Princeton, we also seek to be “intergenerational” in our worship services by encouraging children to participate in a variety of ways.

To get your kids connected at Princeton, contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Joel Van Abbema, at youth@princetoncrc.org.

  • Nursery: Available during the morning service for children ages 0-3.
  • Children’s Worship: Special worship during the morning service for children ages 3  – preschool.
  • Sunday School/Catechism: Kindergarten – 12th grade; meets after the morning service, September – April.

Teenagers have the most fun.

If you’re a teen in grades 9-12, we’d love to have you join us at PYG (Princeton Youth Group). We gather on Sunday nights for food, fellowship, and discussions on the Bible and how we can live out our faith in today’s world. PYG also organizes fun events and different service projects throughout the year.  Past summer trips have included teaching kids in Rehoboth, New Mexico, backpacking in Northern Michigan, and leading vacation bible school in Costa Rica.

PYG meets alternating Sunday nights at 6:30pm from September to April. For more information, contact Joel Van Abbema, our Director of Youth Ministries, at youth@princetoncrc.org.

Get connected with community.

We offer a wide range of adult small groups to help you get plugged into the Princeton community. Wherever you are in life or your spiritual journey, we can help you find a group that meets your needs. Most groups meet once or twice a month and offer opportunities to connect over food, Bible study, social events, or service opportunities.

Kids will discover that God created them, loves them, and wants them to be a part of His family.

Trunk or Treat: Every October, we invite the neighborhood to come out and trick-or-treat with us. Come for costumes, candy, decorated car trunks, games, snacks, and more!
