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 email@example.com. We’d love to have you join us!
This Week in Youth Ministry – January 13, 2019
After an evening of high flying fun at Urban Air, it’s time to start getting ready for Youth Sunday. Beginning this week, we start our prep for Youth Sunday. What does this mean? It means that we as a youth group are planning, writing, and leading the worship service on Feb. 24th. This Sunday is all about our scripture passage and so we will look at the lectionary passages for Feb. 24th to see how and what God is calling us to say through those passages. After choosing our passage we will recreate together and have some fun (not that scripture isn’t fun, too)! So I hope to see you all Sunday night at 5:30pm.
