Vacation Bible School 2019!

June 24 – 28
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
At Roar, kids discover even though life gets wild, God is good! Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Kids will play team building games, sing cool Bible songs, and taste treats that help kids’ faith flow into real life. Since things are hands-on, kids might get a little messy, so send them in play clothes & safe shoes!
Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project where we will raise money for kids in need in a far-away country!

Register here on April 11th

We are excited to welcome kids 4 years old – 5th-grade graduates to go on this exciting adventure with us at First Presbyterian Church! It will be unforgettable!

Volunteer at VBS

Parents, grandparents, and graduates of 6th grade or above are encouraged to join us at VBS! We need over 100 volunteers to make VBS the best week for our kids. We have fun positions for every talent and age. Sign up today!

Drop-off Procedure

On Monday morning, arrive to check in your little “Trekker” on Monday between 8:30-8:50 am in the Playground area. Here’s what you’ll do at registration:
  • Sign in your child.
  • Put on his or her new VBS t-shirt.
  • Take home your family’s Roar! VBS music CD
  • Grab your child’s “pick-up” card so that you can easily and safely pick up your child at the end of the day.
  • TIP! Take a picture of your pick-up card on your phone so you can text it to grandparents or other authorized pick up people.
For the rest of the week’s mornings, drop off your “Trekker” beginning at 8:45 am at the entrance to Fellowship Hall where a Crew Leader will show your child to his or her group.

Pick-up Procedure

  • Parents line up at the entrance we call the “awning door” along the fence at 12 pm.
  • Show your pick up card at the check-out booth.
  • Crew Leaders will retrieve your child and bring him/her to you at the school entrance door (by playground).
  • Any adult who does not have a pick-up card or picture of a card will need to show ID and be listed as authorized to pick up your child.
  • Please bring your “pick up” card with you each day. This ensures the safety of each child and makes things go a lot quicker!

We’ll be raising money for Jumpah Ministries, a school and orphanage in Cambodia. We have a personal connection to this school and will tell our kids all about the mission during our week at VBS. This is our 4th year supporting Jumpah Ministries! Kids are encouraged to bring in change (or bills!) each day to support this worthy cause and send needy kids to school!

You Are Invited to Friday’s Safari Celebration!

Please join us at our last “Safari Celebration” on Friday at 11:30 am, where you will get to be a part of the singing, slideshow and fun that your kids have experienced all week!

Come back to First Presbyterian Church on Sunday!

You’re invited back with your family to join us on Sunday, June 30th at the 10:30 am worship service at First Presbyterian Church Tacoma. All of our VBS kids are invited to sing one of their favorite songs at the beginning of the service and watch a video highlighting the week. Kids are encouraged to wear their VBS shirt and share in this fun morning!

Please contact our Children’s Directors at (253) 272-3286 if you have any questions!
