First Presbyterian Church is hosting our first ever VBS to include adults.
June 5, 6, and 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Bring your family and enjoy a variety of activities for the entire family. We will serve dinner at 5:30 p.m. and then break off into groups. We will hold a traditional VBS for ages 3-13. For our other members and neighbors, we will have a different speaker each night, as well as yoga, adult fellowship and fun. Please fill out all forms for your children to attend and RSVP for the adult portion so we can plan accordingly for food. We hope to see you on June 5th when we kick off "Who's My Neighbor?" VBS. If you have questions or need additional information contact Liz Norris at 316-214-4318.
Registration forms for those attending under the age of 18 are available on the table outside the office and must be completed by May 20th.
Starting this summer, First Church will have a program for parents or caregivers with young children (0-5 year’s old). This playgroup is designed to meet once a month and allow great enrichment opportunities, socialization, and involvement in the life of the church for both children and adults. Be on the look-out for more information coming out soon. For questions, contact Liz Norris.
After a successful fundraising opportunity with Big, Bang, Bingo…..and the not so Silent Auction last fall, the Christian Education and Fellowship Committee happily reports TWO initiatives in action that are utilizing the $4,000 raised. The committee’s vision is to utilize the money for educational opportunities that enhance or boost our Christian experience and connection with each other.
To begin, CE&F recognizes that parents in our congregation with young children between the ages of 0-5 need an outlet to connect and do family, friendly outings. Thus, a Playgroup will begin this summer that meets once a month where parents or caregivers with youngsters do themed outings that allow socialization, enrichment for children, and engagement in the life of our church. The financial support subsidizes the cost of activities and the time of the Playgroup Coordinator.
First Church Cares…..Cards is the second program that CE&F has already put into action since February. This creative and heart-warming outreach increases communication and connection with members within our church family. With handwritten notes of love and encouragement, ten cards are mailed out every month to individuals or family units. The purpose of this program is to recognize member needs and nurture relationships. The financial support aids the cost of card stock, envelopes, and postage.
Our Big, Bang, Bingo…..and the not so Silent Auction will return again this fall! Looking forward to seeing you all there with your super hero capes and making a difference in the lives of others!
Cowtown Services will be held Sunday, June 2, 2019, at 8:00 a.m. & 9:00 a.m. at Cowtown. We will worship in the white frame church which was the second place of worship for the congregation of First Presbyterian Church. The 10:45 a.m. church service will be held in the Sanctuary with communion being served. There will be no chapel service. No communion will be served at Cowtown.
Truly, summer is a great time to adjust to a new rythym in the life of the Church once Pentecost has come and gone. Those who normally attend the 8:30 AM service in the Chapel and 10:45 AM service in the Sanctuary get to attend the 9:30 AM service in the Sanctuary. Long time members get reintroduced as new friendships are made and strengthened.
According to the liturgical calendar, we are in Ordinary Time which is anything but ordinary when you consider that the church has been sent in the power of the Spirit to proclaim and embody the Good News of Jesus Christ. Thus, it should come as no surprise that summer is a great time to send our Youth on mission trips. Our children will be engaged in VBS and Games Camp. Our Camp (Whispering Winds) will be busy receiving groups when the pool opens. Please join us for any or all of the Summer activities found on this website.
