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.
