Student ministry at First

About us...

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. 

Starting Sunday September 20th we will be offering at church...

Confirmation, Youth Group, and a new focused small group called "Study with Sonrisa" these groups will be meeting at church. 

  • 11 am-12pm Confirmation Class will meet
  • 12-1:30 pm Youth Group will meet. Youth Group is open to all students 6th-12th grade
  • 5-6 pm Study with Sonrisa will meet. These will be four week studies. Topics to be explored are racism, how to read the bible, the ennegram, and more! 

At this time we will not be providing meals for students during these meetings unless otherwise indicated. Confirmands are encouraged to bring a sack lunch with them, and youth group students are encouraged to eat before/after. 

Due to the fluidity and rapid pace our circumstances can change we are asking for open, willing hearts and commitments from both students and parents of four week increments. At the end of each four-week session we will have the opportunity to revisit the current schedule and adjust if needed
