Our Vacation Bible School theme for this year is Peace Works. Along with daily scriptures, Peace Works includes themes that invite us to explore peace from a variety of cultural, historical, and theological perspectives.
Various cultural and ethnic expressions and voices are brought together to make peace more than a clichéd dream. The hospitality of Aloha, the connectivity of Ubuntu, and self-awareness of Heiwa, and the passion of Sí Se Puede® remind us that peace pushes us to change, grow, and unite.
These daily theme words hold deep meaning and invite us to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Campers will be invited to think about peace and peace making from a different perspective.
Children of all ages are welcome to stay in our worship service. We do offer our church nursery to children ages 2 years old and under if that works best for your family. We have a wonderful nursery staff who is ready to take care of your little ones while you worship.
Children ages 3 years old through 5th grade will be in the Sanctuary for the beginning of the 9:00 worship service. At 9:15 they are invited to leave and participate in a fun, dynamic discipleship experience called First Kids.
At First Pres we use John MacArthur’s curriculum, Generations of Grace which goes through the major stories of the Old Testament, the life of Jesus and finishes with a few lessons from Revelation.
There are opportunities to serve the young people of First Pres! Interested in volunteering to teach one of our 45 minute First Kids classes? Email Laurie McCleskey to learn more.
