First Presbyterian Church is committed to minister to the youth of our congregation and the surrounding communities through separate Middle School and High School groups. We work with parents to help their kids grow in the Christian faith during their teen years.

 

Students who become involved in FPCs youth programs will find solid Bible teaching, friendship, spiritual encouragement, a purpose for living that is larger than themselves, good fun which is not chemically induced, and moral support in dealing with the challenges of life.

 

Youth Ministry at FPC is lead by two full-time youth staff – youth director, Jon Evans, assistant youth director, Anna Hadorn, a staff of dedicated adult volunteers, and an active church committee overseeing and supporting the youth ministry.
