vacation bible school registration

Vacation Bible School will take place from 6-8 PM. June 11-15

This year's theme is "Shipwrecked" and there have already been countless hours spent prepping and making sets for what is going to be the event of the summer for elementary school aged kids. Join us for a fun-filled week on a desert island with a cast of wacky characters and a God who saves. Please reserve your spot by CLICKING HERE. If you have any questions, or to volunteer, please call Shannon at the church office (352-357-2833) or at

First Presbyterian Church is considered a "model VBS" by Group Publishing, creators of many popular VBS curriculums. Each year for the past 3 years, Group has held a training and immersion session for other churches right here at First Church. Come experience VBS the way you always wanted it to be. Can't wait to see you on the island!
