Youth Ministry Hopes & Needs for 2017-2018

Read about our ministries below, and then click to see the specific ways you could help!

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.

Junior Pilgrim Fellowship:   The Junior High Pilgrim Fellowship is open to students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grade.  It meets weekly, usually on Sunday evenings throughout the school year with some additional programs in the summer. 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.

Confirmation I and Confirmation II:  Our confirmation program at First Church is taught by the Pastors and 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 I class and moves on to a ninth grade confirmation II class, although some high school students choose to take the class later on. Our confirmation program involves a commitment to worship and learning.
