Each year at First Presbyterian Church about 125 children from the community join us the week after school lets out for an exciting time of Bible lessons, games, crafts and music. Over 60 volunteers come together to provide a fun, safe and adventuresome learning atmosphere for God’s precious children of Walla Walla. Please contact us with any questions you might have about what faith in God means for you and your family.
Wilderness Escape: Where God Guides and Provides
June 16th - 20th 2014
What would happen if you could sit down with Moses, listen to his stories, marvel at his unwavering faith, ask him your questions, and learn to trust in God the way he did when he led the Israelites out of Egypt?
Your kids are about to find out!
With all the hardships he faced, Moses might have wanted to give up. But even though he was surrounded by naysayers, Moses trusted God to guide and provide. As kids hear Moses stand up for his faith in God, they’ll discover how they can trust God in everyday life.

Easter, and the week leading up to it, are days of importance as we remember all that our Lord, Jesus did for us in life, death, and resurrection. We invite you and your family to join us and find the hope that is found in the Way, Truth, & Life that is Jesus.
