VBS
First Pres VBS (Vacation Bible School) welcomes approximately 150 children age 4 through 4th grade each year to sing songs, learn Bible stories, play games, explore arts and crafts, and (of course) enjoy tasty snacks! First Pres VBS is truly an amazing and fun experience surrounded by the love of Jesus. Each year we also have an amazing mission project to teach the importance of giving back to round out this amazing, wacky week!  Our VBS adventures run from 9:30 am-noon daily for five days. Get more details on VBS.
 
RSG
For our middle school kids, RSG (Ready, Set, Go!), is a fun-filled day camp for students entering 5th, 6th & 7th grades, which runs for one week each summer in conjunction with the First Pres VBS. The full-day program is specially designed for older kids and runs from 9:30 am-4:00 pm daily. It includes field trips (e.g., Lincoln Park Zoo, Feed My Starving Children, Enchanted Castle, Mystic Waters), large group presentations, small group discussions on spiritual and life issues, games, and service projects. Our high school students provide music and relevant leadership for these middle schoolers. All field trips are chaperoned by adults as well as the high school leaders.Get more details on RSG.
