VBS was fantastic!

First Pres VBS 2017 was a big hit...thanks to all of our incredible volunteers! 

Over 130 Kids learned that God Made Them and they have purpose and value! 82 Volunteers of all ages came Monday through Thursday to welcome, register, teach, shepherd, lead games, teach music/lead worship, prepare snacks, inspire inventions, run tech, take pictures, and love the kids who came! 

Thank you PARENTS for sharing your kids! Thank you KIDS for coming to be a part of our VBS! Thank you to VOLUNTEERS who made it all possible!                                  Gadgets&Gizmos:                                                                                                   Uniquely Wired. Wonderfully Made.                                                                                            June 5-8.                                                                                                                        Check back next week for pictures of the great week!

We have a new Check-In System in the First Pres Kids Ministry! It is our desire to keep your children safe while they are in our care. Please click here for more information on the check-in system.

We would LOVE for you to be a part of the Kids Ministry! Kids are wanted, parents are needed, and grandparents are some of our favorites! We have lots of places to serve: from teaching, to greeting/helping with check-in, to just being present to connect with the children God brings through our doors! For more information please contact us at


We Practice Parenting in the Pew:

During our worship services we encourage children to sit with their parents and practice “Parenting in the Pew.” Children who worship alongside their parents are more likely to worship for a lifetime. If you’d like more information, we’ll be happy to talk with you! Or click on the green link below for an overview. Please note: we do offer Nursery and Preschool Worship at this time for our littlest children. Parents can discern when they feel each child is ready to join their family in worship.

Special Needs:

If your child has special needs, THEY ARE WELCOME at FIRST PRES!! We encourage you to contact our Early Childhood Director, Debbie Laur at, or our Elementary Director, Michal-ann Bell at, so we can explore ways to help you and your child have a meaningful experience at First Pres.
