Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Children are an important part of First Presbyterian Church. We partner with families to provide nurturing, meaningful, and enjoyable experiences through which each child can learn of God's love.

Vacation Bible  School: Babylon

We need volunteers to be crew leaders who can guide five children throughout the VBS week. A crew leader will visit learning centers with their crew and enjoy music, crafts, snacks, games and Bible stories. 
Help us feed our hungry explorers by signing up to bring snacks for VBS. You can sign-up online or at the VBS table in the Atrium. Snacks should be dropped off at the VBS table in the Atrium by June 11.
