Youth Group:  Ministry to Middle and High School Students

First Presbyterian Church of Pooler seeks to teach students deep truths of God’s Word, help them grow together in fellowship, and aid youth and their families in a variety of ways.    We’re dedicated to providing a place for students junior high through high school to connect with God, with other students, and with older committed leaders that are dedicated to seeing students grow closer to Christ. 

We believe that you can't do life alone, and that our students are at a unique time of life where they can grasp the gospel and the impact of having the life of Jesus in their lives.  This ministry does not seek to usurp the role of the parent or disconnect the youth from the life of the church, but rather it seeks to further assist the parent and to encourage wider fellowship with the rest of the congregation.  

Opportunities

Sunday Classes—Our Spring Sunday School classes begin on January 13, 2019 and meet from 10:00-10:45 AM.  In senior high Sunday school we will be studying the Doctrine of God, and in our junior high Sunday school class we will be studying the books of Joshua-Samuel.  It is our hope that in diving deep into God’s Word, students will find a greater trust in Christ and a deeper love for the church. 

 

Bible Study—Our regular 6th-12th grade Bible study will resume on January 16, 2019 and will meet from 6-8 PM.  We will be continuing our study of the Gospel of Luke.  On the first and third Wednesday’s of each month, students can eat dinner with the Westminster Group in the Fellowship Hall starting at 6.  On the second and fourth Wednesday’s of each month, pizza or another dish will be available.  

Special Events

Each month, the Youth have some type of special event, either for the purpose of fellowship, or the purpose of serving our church or community. Past events include boating, tubing, game nights, bowling, disc golf, going to the beach, putt-putt golf, movie nights, and scavenger hunts.

 

Each Summer, we have a special event of some kind nearly every week. We also go to Ridge Haven, our denominational camp and conference center in North Carolina, for their Service Project Camp.  This year’s trip will be June 17-22.  

Ministering to the Parents of Youth

We also seek to provide opportunities for parents to fellowship together.  Recently we have begun parent prayer lunches and dad’s prayer breakfasts.  Details on the dates and times of these fellowships can be found in the church bulletin.
