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.

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.
