Youth Fellowship

Our newest youth group, Youth Fellowship is for 4th-5th graders! We meet approximately twice each month for fun, service, and learning.

Junior Pilgrim Fellowship

The Junior High Pilgrim Fellowship is open to students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grade. We meet most Sunday evenings in person as local, state, and Church guidance allows.  Adult leadership for this program is provided by our Faith Formation Minister and volunteers. Programs include discussion groups, retreats, games, group-building activities, the annual Rock-a-thon for charity, Christmas Caroling, service projects, and much more. [ more ]

Senior Pilgrim Fellowship

The Senior High Pilgrim Fellowship (Senior PF) is open to High School Students, grades nine through twelve. It meets weekly, usually on Sunday evenings throughout the school year with some additional programs in the summer. Adult leadership in the group is provided by our Associate Pastor and volunteers. Our three missions are 1) to build faith and community among participants; 2) serve God and neighbor; and 3) have fun together!. The Senior High Fellowship takes on the responsibility of raising funds and awareness for the mission trips they go on each June to assist people in need. [ more ]


Our confirmation program at First Church is taught by the Pastors and Minister of Faith Formation.  It is designed to help our young people confirm their faith and to prepare them for Church membership. It begins with an eighth grade Confirmation emphasis on faith practice and moves on to faith practice/bible exploration/personal reflection/community engagement for older students. Our Confirmation program involves a commitment to worship and learning.  If you have questions about the Confirmation program or want to learn more, please contact Rev. Ashley at or Kelsey DeCarlo at We have an excited year underway for the Confirmation Class of 2024!
