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 into 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 scavenger hunts, trampoline parks, bowling, skiing, retreats, and more! Youth group will start up again on September 8th!
Our meals are provided by generous parents and church members, if you’re able to sign up to bring a meal to youth group one week, you can sign up by clicking here! Thank you so much for your generosity!
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!
Summer 2019 was a busy time for FPCYM, we held our annual Hands in Service week, aimed at our 5th-7th graders, with older student helpers. Over 4o youth participated, and we worked with six local nonprofits and helped Children’s ministry prepare for Vacation Bible School! We also went on a mission trip to Gary, WV where we worked on homes and learned about life in Appalachia. Later in July, FPCYM also took a group to the Montreat Youth Conference, in Black Mountain, NC, where we worshiped, met in small groups and played with new friends! Information about Summer opportunities through FPCYM for 2020 will be available this fall!
12 E. Cork Street Revamp!
Thank you so much to everyone who donated financially and with their time to make 12 E. Cork Street even better! We are currently in the process of putting on the finishing touches, but it is just about finished. We’re so excited to start a new school year of youth ministry in the incredible updated space!
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.
