At First Presbyterian Church we believe it is imperative to give our youth a safe place where they can share their thoughts and opinions in a spiritual environment. Being a middle or high school youth is seemingly harder now than it has ever been, especially with the popularity of social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram. By fostering an open and learning environment, we aim to provide our youth with a strong base of Christian beliefs and safe place to explore those beliefs. On Sunday evenings, we seek to engage the whole person through sharing a meal and fellowship, through recreation to build community and trust with one another, and through exploration and discussion of relevant issues and how God’s word can speak to us and these issues in our everyday lives. On occasions, we will also use this time to engage in service to our community and church or just have a good time together at an offsite event. The calendar of events below is updated monthly during the school year and if you have any questions, please contact the Director of Christian Education, Kris Brammer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to have you join us!
This week in Youth Ministry
Whelp, wasn’t expecting that little spit of freezing rain last week but this weekend is looking better, although still pretty cold. But that’s okay because we will be in the warm confines of the home of Sherry Knapp for our Pizza and Bible study. Please meet at Sherry’s house at 5:30 p.m. We will be studying several very short stories that all have to do with living our faith for God vs. others from Matthew Ch. 6.
This week the middle school and Sr. High youth also have their respective Sunday School classes in B-11 and the Youth Room. See you Sunday!
