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 Week in Youth Ministry at FPC, Lincoln – May 6, 2018
Sunday night FPC Youth Fellowship is on is on a break for the summer and will resume on Sept. 9th with our Youth Fellowship opening party. But until then here are some summer youth activities that are happening.
Also, don’t forget that we are looking for helpers at this year’s VBS June 4-8, from 9:00am to Noon. If you can help out, let me know.
Finally, there is no youth Sunday school this weekend due to the Lincoln Marathon making traffic and entry to the church difficult at best. Youth Sunday School will resume on my 13th, which is also the youth ensemble performance date at the 11:00am worship service.
Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
