High School

We believe that youth ministry thrives at the intersection of community and discipleship, where students are formed together into the likeness of Christ.
A thriving youth ministry is oriented around students’ formation as life-long disciples of Jesus. Over the duration of students’ involvement in the high school ministry, our hope and aim is to equip them to engage deeply in Christian community for the sake of Christian discipleship.

Our youth ministry vision is aligned with broader congregation-wide philosophy of discipleship. Click here to learn more about discipleship at First Pres.

God@Christmas is a two-day event that is part fun, Christmas time lock-in and part mission work in the local community. The event includes a prayer tour of the city, crazy night games, Christ-centered mission work in several local non-profit organizations, worship services, and a Carol-Oke competition. This event is aimed at deepening our community in Christ and exploring how we can reflect Christ missionally right here in our home town.
