Youth Ministry

Youth Group meets every Wednesday evening

All youth in grades 6th to 12th are welcome to join in our weekly Youth Group gathering, and that includes friends, family and neighbors of that age. All are welcome!

Youth Group is led by Joel Morien, Director of Children, Youth and Families, along with members of the CE Committee, Bobbi Holl and Lonnie McCormick. Group meets each Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm in our upstairs Youth Group Room. Weekly opportunities are designed to challenge faith, strengthen friendships, and deepen our commitment to one another and to God. Through worship, fellowship, education, and service, we aim to engage youth in activities that allow them to experience Christ’s love in many ways.

Throughout the year, there’s several opportunities for fellowship and ministry. First Presbyterian youth participate in:

Feed My Starving Children MobilePack in October

December lock-in to wrap the Christmas Prayer Basket gifts

January ski trip

Spring lock-in

AND, More!

Each July, youth have the opportunity to attend Synod School. We were pleased to have so many youth in attendance for the 2023 Synod School that was themed Our Family Story – “…All Jesus did that day was tell stories—a long storytelling afternoon. His storytelling fulfilled the prophecy: I will open my mouth and tell stories; I will bring out into the open things hidden since the world’s first day.” Matthew 13:34-35-34-35 MSG

Our youth group was part of more than 500 people in attendance for 2023. In the spirit of Christ’s community, we walked through biblical family experiences. Family stories of the bible connect us as children of God. In a time when biblical stories are picked apart to suit a particular message; participants gathered and studied familiar stories in new ways in hopes of gaining a new closeness with God, and each other. Everyone came home with an eagerness to attend again in 2024.
