12 E. Cork Street Revamp!
It’s time for an upgrade! 12 E. Cork Street is an incredible space and I want to make sure we are making the most of it, so this summer we’re going to do a little revamp. The goal is to create a malleable space that is updated with current technology and new, lightweight, aesthetically cohesive furniture. By investing in our youth, we are investing in the future of the Church. With this change in space, FPC’s youth program will be able to do more and include more students. Will you help us make that happen? We need your time and talent- moving strength, design eyes and furniture building skills. We are also asking for donations, with the goal of raising $6,000. Come see the current space and celebrate the legacy of our kids during Sunday School on Commissioning Sunday, June 9th, to witness tradition, and see what a change to this space could be! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help, or make a donation under the “donate” tab! Be sure to select the “12 E. Cork Fund” option! Thank you!
Middle and High School Ministry:
Our 7th-12th grade students have many opportunities to get involved here at First Presbyterian Church. We offer Sunday school classes, youth choir, youth fellowship, mission trips and other fellowship and service opportunities. Our high school youth plan and lead worship twice a year, at the 7 p.m. Christmas Eve Service and on Youth Sunday. This helps them to grow in their faith while learning more about worship. Our 8th grade students can choose to become a member of our church by opting in to our Commissioning program where they pick or are assigned a mentor who leads them through this process. This program guides them in their faith and builds the foundation for the future.
Youth Fellowship is for 7-12th grade students every Sunday night. Each week we live by the 3 F’s, Food, Fun, and Fellowship. Meetings are from 6-7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. We also have varying offsite activities throughout the year such as paintball, scavenger hunts, trampoline parks, bowling, skiing, retreats, and more! The last youth group of this school year is April 28th.
NEXT ministry is a special pre-teen ministry for 5-6th graders, which includes fellowship and service events. Including serving in Jubilee Kitchen, celebrating holidays, meeting monthly for an almost youth group, and other special events!

Mission is very important to our church and the youth is no exception. Every year our youth experience many opportunities to participate in local missions of the church. This includes a week long out of state mission trip for our older youth, a local mini mission week for our 5th & 6th grade students called HIS Week (Hands In Service), collecting canned good for CCAP, serving a meal with Jubilee Kitchen, working at the Highland Food Pantry, and so much more. We at First Presbyterian Church think that believing in God is just as important as serving His people in our community and around the world.
