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!
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 – January 21, 2018
We continue our work together on youth Sunday this week. On tap for Sunday night is a bible study on our passage, Isaiah 41:1-13 (I extended the passage a bit to include some context). We will also begin assigning part of the service. If you cannot be in attendance but have a particular part in mind that you’d like to do (scripture, children’s sermon, etc.), just let me know and we’ll see if we can work it out (but no guarantees) And of course it won’t be all work, we’ll play a little as well.
We are now colleting mission trip reservations, so sign up now with your deposit. If you need to make arrangements regarding the deposit, speak to Kris Brammer. The flyer and reservation form have been attached to this email.
See ya Sunday!
