Vacation Bible School

VBS is designed and created by a team of individuals that love reaching out into our community!  VBS is something we look forward to every summer.  Children in pre-k through 5th grade are invited to join us for a week of fun, including crafts, outdoor activities, music, and Bible lessons.

2022 VBS will be held from Tuesday, July 5 through Friday, July 8 from 9:00 – 11:45 AM. Growing spiritually doesn’t have to be an unsolved mystery! Become a kid detective and take a four-day journey as we dig into a few of Jesus’ parables to solve the mysteries of how to grow in faith and how to care for, serve, and love others. Children will discover the answers that have been there all along: spend time with God, spend time with others, use your gifts, and share your story. Registration is now closed.

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation Classes are held annually and offer an opportunity for students in 8th-12th grades to dig into their faith!  We wrestle with difficult questions, study God’s Word, learn about the history of the church and of our denomination, and have a lot of fun doing it!  At the end of Confirmation classes, students are officially eligible to become members of First Presbyterian Church and are invited to take that next step in their journey of faith.
