High School Youth meets every Sunday at 9:45 in Room 106

This year, the high schoolers are exploring each piece of worship and why it is we do it the way we do as Presbyterians! This will lead into a time of worship planning in preparation for Youth Sunday on June 3, 2018. We begin with a time of fellowship (often with breakfast!) and community building, and end with prayer.

Youth are also invited to participate in various youth specific events, including monthly Popcorn Theology nights, mission days, and more! Questions about how to get involved with the youth program?

Top Goals for the Youth Ministry
The Youth Ministry is one of the vital ministries of a local congregation. One of the most urgent, most helpful tasks for the church is to help answer any questions teens have, help them understand what Christianity is, and be helpful as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood.

At its most recent meeting, the church's Youth Council established four top goals for the overall youth ministry of this congregation:

  1. Build committed relationships among people--of all ages--in the church.

  2. Develop the spiritual lives of young people.

  3. Develop an appreciation for the history of the church and a love for the Bible.

  4. Develop a youth program that is meaningful and significant for everyone who is involved.

Take a few moments to check out a PHOTO SLIDESHOW of the Summer 2014 Youth and Middle School Mission Trip. Five middle and high school girls were ready for a mission adventure. The experience depended their faith, broadened their perspective as compared to their own lives, opened their hearts and the girls were inspired by volunteers that were committed to making a difference.

At First Church, we partner with families to guide and nurture children and youth, providing plenty of ways to encourage kids to know and follow Jesus Christ and be faithful members of his church.
