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!
A typical Sunday Youth Group schedule is as follows:
- 5:30-6:00 pm: Dinner and Fellowship Time
- 6:00-6:20 pm: Recreation and Community Building
- 6:20-7:00 pm: Faith and Issues Exploration
This Sunday, Sept. 24th, FPC youth are playing Frisbee golf! We will meet in the East Entrance to carpool to Roper Park where we will play together and have a picnic dinner on the grounds. Actual, real disc golf Frisbees are provided, all you need to bring is yourself and a good pair of walking shows. Noticed I didn’t say you need to bring your Frisbee skills, because this Sunday is all about having fun! (Although there will be prizes for a hole-in-one, long drive, closest to the pin, etc.)
Finally, don’t forget that Confirmation Class begins Oct 1st. Confirmation is for all 8th grade and older youth who would like to explore what it means to join the church. For more information about Confirmation, please speak to me (Kris Brammer)
