Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is committed to safe and authentic exploration of faith and life in exciting, fun, and creative ways.

All 6 - 12th graders are welcome as we try to understand and respond to God’s work in our lives. We are passionate about worship, music, service, education, small groups, fellowship, mission, and educational trips. If you’ve never been to a youth event, give it a try. Come and see what we’re all about!

Latest Youth news:

January 9, 2019

We had an awesome 2019 kickoff weekend! The Confirmation Retreat on Saturday was success, with a big thanks to our friends at Challenge Discovery. Bagels and Bibles, our first Confirmation Class, and Youth Group were all filled with wonderful conversations and activities! We are very excited to be inviting our new pastor, Rev. Amy Starr Redwine and her family, the FPC Youth crew!

This Week

We will have our first 2019 Intermission TOMORROW! We have changed to Thursday nights to accommodate more of our youth's spring schedules. We will be at the Caven family home from 7-8:30pm!

The Youth Ministry Ski trip is taking off Friday evening! We will return Saturday night with some great stories of our overnight and ski adventures!

On Sunday, Confirmation will be lead by Wilson while Bagels and Bibles will be taught by FPC's Director of Mission and Outreach, Ingrid Addison at 9:45am! Youth Group will be at 5pm Sunday night with dinner host Grandison Burnside!

Note to Parents:

If you are interested in helping chaperone Youth Group at any point this Spring please talk to Wilson or Elise! We are always looking for some extra support during our large group evenings.
