High School Ministry

“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

Come sing carols and share Christmas cheer with our neighbors on Sunday, December 10! We would love for you and your friends to join us for an afternoon of carols, hot coca and wonderful music. The youth (grades 6 - 12) will gather at the church at 2:00 p.m. for cocoa and cookies, and then go caroling. We will return after we finish caroling to the church by 4:30 p.m. We are also looking for some adult drivers to join us. So, if you are a parent who loves caroling and hanging out with youth, we hope you’ll RSVP too (and check the box to be a driver)!

RSVP for caroling (or to be a driver!) here
