Community is the middle name of First Church’s youth program for 7th-12th grades. While our young people in middle and high school attend perhaps 10 different schools, they come together to grow closer to God, live their faith in the world, and have some good clean fun.
Our middle school group is called Identity and our high school group is called Journey. Both groups meet on Wednesdays from 6-7 pm. The groups share a provided meal together and then split up to play games and build community. We end every meeting by praying together.
This March youth in grades 7-12 are invited to a youth retreat in Williams Bay, Wisconsin on Geneva Lake. In the morning youth gather to hear the story of who we are as God’s people, connect that theme to activities during the day, and reflect on it in the evening using different devotional practices.
Volunteers with the Youth Ministry program must meet with the Director of Youth Ministry prior to service with youth, complete the Safe Gatherings online training and background check, and agree to the Volunteer Covenant.
