Student ministry at First

We value young people, and see them not as the future of the church, but as a vital part of our present church. 


We offer many opportunities for growth in faith and leadership for all youth, from 6th through 12th grades, through classes, special events, mission trips, and opportunities to serve in the congregation and community.


Middle and high school-aged youth in grades 6-12 are invited to join us!


Classes and Groups offered September through May:


Sunday morning faith formation classes: 9:40-10:30 am

Confirmation Classes for 8th graders and up: 9:30-10:30 am including field trips

Sunday evening Youth Group: 5:30-7:30 pm, including a light supper and activities


Special and Seasonal Events for Youth:


Retreats and Lock-ins, held throughout the school year for more depth and friendship-building.

Summer Church Camp at several United Methodist-based camps with tuition assistance from First

Summer Youth Mission Trips: Middle school students serve in Michigan and high school students serve around the U.S. and even abroad
