“If we love one another, God abides in us, and God’s love is perfected in us.”
1 John 4:12
At First Pres, God’s grace stirs our ministry with young disciples and families. Our Youth Ministry provides a safe, healthy place for young people to explore and grow a strong Christian faith, to connect with other young people and to support busy families. At First Pres, Youth Ministries include Sunday School classes, Middle School and High School Youth Groups, plus chances to be involved in intergenerational church activities, mission and service and much more. Essie Koenig- Reinke is our new Youth Ministries Coordinator and Rev. Evans McGowan leads the High School group and teaches Confirmation.

Christmas Caroling on “Christmas Eve Eve”
Sunday, December 23 at 2:00 p.m. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as we’re heading full force on a sleigh ride into a winter wonderland. Our youth think about more than sugar plum fairies — they want others to have a holly jolly Christmas, too! On December 23 in the afternoon, we’ll be visiting the residents at Glacier Hills and caroling for them. While this is part of the Monthly Mission put on by the Youth Ministry, we don’t want to be rockin’ around the Christmas tree alone. Everyone at First Pres is invited for a merry little Christmas event! If you’re interested, please contact Essie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
