Youth programming at First is designed with faith, friendship and fun in mind.

Middle and High School

Middle and High School students meet together with their adult sponsors and teachers during the Sunday School period. These Sunday morning gatherings involve lively discussion and reflection about living as Christians in a sometimes challenging world.

Activities include occasional field trips and mission efforts, World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine, and some gatherings that are just for fun.

Confirmation classes meet three times per month, September through June, every other program year, to discuss in depth what it means to be Christian and to help young people form their decision about joining the Church. Field trips to local houses of worship of other faith traditions and weekend retreats deepen and enrich this time of spiritual journey and reflection.

Most of our Confirmation students are in 7th and 8th Grade, but classes are open to students through 12th Grade. Our next Confirmation class will be forming in September 2017.
