YOUTH MINISTRY 

Youth Club

Beginning in 6th grade, youth can participate in our Sunday Youth Club program.  Our Youth Club meets after worship on Sundays, from 11:45 AM to 1:30 PM.  A typical gathering consists of sharing a meal together, Bible study and devotion time, games, music and fellowship.  We also participate in various service opportunities such as Operation Christmas Child, Rise Against Hunger Rice Packaging, Souper Bowl of Caring, and serving meals at the Union County Community Shelter.  Fundraising opportunities and other special activities are planned throughout the year.  Youth are welcome to participate in Youth Retreats and Mission Trips during the summer.

 

Confirmation

Confirmation class is held during either the 8th or 9th grade year for youth who are ready to join the church.  This class begins in September.

 

Sunday School

This is a time on Sunday mornings when 7th-12th graders come together to learn about the Bible using various curriculums and studies.  Biblical topics are age appropriate and relevant connections are made to the lives of our youth.  

 

Graduation/Youth Sunday

As we approach the end of the school year, a special day is set aside to honor our high school graduates.  Our youth lead the congregation in worship in a program that is created and implemented by the youth of our church and youth club program.

 

Staffing

Currently, two of our former youth, who are now adults, are on staff to work closely with all youth who come through the church doors.  We also have dedicated counselors who help teach Sunday school and/or are actively involved in our Sunday Youth Club.  Youth are encouraged to bring friends on both Sunday morning and afternoons.  We would love for you to join us!


FPC Youth Club News

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-inspired movement to support local food charities in their endeavor to Tackle Hunger.  The FPC Youth Club is proud to support the Community Shelter of Union County in its service to provide food, emergency shelter, and rehousing for those in need by participating in this event.  The FPC Youth Club campaign will run from January 14th to February 11th, but online donations will be accepted through the end of the Community Shelter of Union County campaign that ends in March.  We  will host a chili cookoff on February 4th.  All donations received during the Chili Cookoff event will benefit the Community Shelter of Union County.  Registration for the Chili Cookoff will open soon!  Click on the image below to find out more.


The FPC Youth Club is proud to lead our Body of Christ in packing boxes for The Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child again this year. The First Presbyterian Church Preschool and members of our Body of Christ have spent the last month putting together boxes, collecting and organizing supplies, and donating funds to cover the shipping costs of each box. Those efforts culminated Sunday, November 12th as we filled and prayed over 100 boxes that will be sent to bring joy and the message of the Gospel to children across the globe.

On Sunday, November 19th, our Body of Christ prayed over our boxes before the Youth Club delivered them to the Operation Christmas Child Collection Site.  At the donation site, we assisted others with unloading their boxes from their vehicles before unloading the 105 boxes prepared by our church.  The Collection Site Volunteers shared with us just how important this Mission is to spreading the Gospel and the Love of Christ to those who may have never heard the Good News before.  After one last prayer with the Collection Site Volunteers, we sent our boxes on their way to their final destination.  

 

Thanks to everyone that supported the mission, and we ask that you join us in continued prayer for the Pastors and workers that will carry the boxes and the Gospel message to their recipients and that they may come to know Jesus Christ.
