Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus
is our theme this year! Children will learn how Jesus helps us in hard times. They will memorize scriptures to have in their hearts for times of need.
VBS is one of the greatest weeks of the year around First Pres! So many volunteers from age 14 to 90 come together using their heart for kids and their gifts of teaching, hospitality, leading and many more! It'll take lots people to bring this week together...and serving together is SO MUCH FUN!
We start every morning at 9:00 with opening assembly, talking about the day's main point. From there the children go with their leader and group around the church to stations such as BIBLE DISCOVERY, IMAGINATION STATION and SHIP REC GAMES. Then we'll finish up together in the Fellowship Hall with our closing and be ready for pick up at 12:00 noon.
First Pres VBS 2018 is for all Preschool Kids 3 years and up,Kindergartners and Elementary Kids all the way up to just leaving 5th grade.
Age three is when children are better able, developmentally, at handling the VBS routine: moving around the building, sitting still for lessons, and participating in crafts without eating them (most of the time). If your child is not quite 3 we recommend you hold off until next year to register them.
Our "heading-to-6th-grade" Kids will have the special privilege of meeting in the A&O House with our youth associates, Jake Schroeder and Anna McCay. They will still participate in the VBS stations like the rest of the Kids. They'll have a great week while getting a taste of being part of the A&O ministry! (They will start and finish each day in the Fellowship Hall.)
