Children’s Ministry Update

April Update

Coming soon to a Children’s Ministry near you: VBS 2018, Maker Fun Factory!

Mark your calendars with our Vacation Bible School Week, Tuesday, May 29 – Friday, June 1, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. At Maker Fun Factory, children will learn they are created by God for a specific purpose, as well as have many opportunities to fully use their imaginations and let their creativity soar! Online Registration is now open! Register your child for this exciting week at First Pres!

Over the past few years, Vacation Bible School at First Presbyterian Church has continued to grow to over one hundred children! So that we can provide these sweet children with lots of fun and safe activities, we need a large team of adult and youth volunteers. Please consider joining our WONDERFUL VBS VOLUNTEER TEAM! We have a variety of VBS volunteer needs, from help with set up, to snack duty, to Godly Play storytelling. If you are available to lend a hand, whether it is for one day or for the entire week of VBS, please contact me or 706-543-4338.

At Maker Fun Factory, the children will have many opportunities to create and build. In order for the children to be as creative as possible, we need your help with collecting a wide array of art supplies. Please continue to bring in the following items: yarn, buttons, pieces of fabric, aluminum “vegetable” food cans (not soda cans), aluminum coffee cans, cardboard round “Morton” salt containers, shoe boxes, tissue boxes, egg cartons, milk gallon tops, paper towel rolls, and toilet paper rolls. Bring these items to the Children’s Ministry Suite and place them in the VBS labeled storage containers next to the entrance of the staff kitchen. And thanks so much for all the items that have already been donated! Please keep them coming!

Easter, April 1, Services at 8:45 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. & Easter Brunch, 9:30 a.m.

Please join us for Easter! During worship, children ages Pre K – 5th Grade are invited to remain in the sanctuary as we celebrate as a church family the risen Christ. We will not have Children’s Church. Nursery/childcare will be available for infants – four year olds. All are invited to enjoy Easter Brunch during the Sunday School hour in Fellowship Hall.
