Hear ye! Hear ye! All ye Kings and Queens, Knights and Nobles!
By royal decree the difficult decision has been made to cancel the in person summer gathering of knights known as VBS. All our knights instead will begin a summer quest at home, checking in twice monthly to be sure they are indeed armoring up with love, truth, and faith. On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday in June-August First Pres castle will host ZOOM gatherings with VBS music, Bible stories and prayer. Rev. Sarah will also be dropping off monthly craft activities for knights and nobles as well. Please read this royal announcement of times for our knights, nobles and their families to connect via ZOOM.
Until then it is joyfully advised to “be strong in the Lord and the strength of His power” Ephesians 6:10 – Rev. Sarah, First Pres Castle

Mid September – May | Sundays 9:30- 10:30 a.m.
Our Sunday morning Sunday School is one essential way children are rooted in faith. Each morning children, Pre-School through 5th grade are dismissed from Time with Younger Disciples in the Heart of Worship Service (9:15am) or arrive on their own at 9:30am. They learn music with our Music Director, then with their class engage the Biblical story through interactive games, creative crafts and study. On the first Sunday of the month, when First Pres. has one worship service at 10am, children will share a musical number in worship and stay with their families through the service.
