The Youth Ministry of First Presbyterian Church provides opportunities for Students in Grades 6-12 to grow in their relationships with each other and with God. To view our Winter – Spring Calendar for 2013, please click here.
Each Sunday, the Youth meet for classes in the Morning (10-10:45am) and in the Evening (6-7pm). The lessons in our Sunday Classes explore books of the Bible (recent studies include Gospel of John and Romans), key Christian doctrines (recent studies include the Attributes of God and The Church), and key theological issues that relate to Youth (recent studies include Engaging God’s World and the Gospel in Everyday Life).
Each Tuesday, the Youth meet for Bible Study at the church from 7-8:30pm. Our Bible Study meetings are less formal than our Sunday Classes, and include time for snacks, a game, singing, prayer, and Bible Study. The lessons in our Bible Study are all rooted in Scripture, but focus on very practical content and application. Recent studies include the Marks of a True Christian (based on 1 John) and Why Be Wise (based on Proverbs).
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 game nights, bowling, disc golf, going to the beach, putt-putt golf, movie nights, and scavenger hunts.
Each February, we have a two-day Winter Retreat. This is a time for the students to have extended time together studying God’s Word and enjoying fellowship with one another away from their ordinary surroundings. This year’s Winter Retreat is scheduled for February 15-16th.
Each Summer, we have a special event of some kinds 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 to Ridge Haven will be July 8-12th.
