Youth Ministry

At First Presbyterian Church, we believe that there is a purpose to life: to know God and enjoy Him forever. It is our desire to see young people come to:
  • Know Jesus
  • Grow in their faith and calling
  • Show others His hope and love
  • Go and tell the world about their one, true hope of Salvation     (Matthew 28:18-20, & 22:37-39)

Youth Groups

Middle School Youth Group meets weekly (during the school year) every Wednesday night, 5:30–6:30 pm. All 6th-8th graders are invited for games, worship and an inspiring and encouraging message. All kids are required to wear a face covering, and we are practicing safe social distancing, and following proper sanitizing procedures.

High School Youth Group meets weekly (during the school year) every Wednesday night, 7:00–8:00 pm.

Mission Trips

Each year we take 40+ students to Gleanings for the Hungry in Central California to process food that will be shipped all over the world. These food packages go with the Gospel and feeds the body and the soul.
