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.

Fun in the Son!

High School Summer Camp

July 6-11, 2020

Hilton Head, South Carolina

A week on the beach having a blast and growing in Christ? Yes, please! Fun in the Son is a Christian camp run by Youth Conference Ministries, the same organization that runs our Middle School Great Escape trip. Their hope is to see students experience Jesus in profound ways. We will stay in villas on the beach where there will be plenty of time for fun beach activities along with space to grow in your walk with Christ through personal Bible study, small group time, and big group sessions of worship and preaching. This is a great opportunity you won’t want to miss!
The cost is $450 per student and is all inclusive – camp fee, lodging, meals, transportation. Cost only excludes spending money during the week and personal snacks. Scholarships are available, so we encourage you to please reach out to us if you are interested in learning more.
The trip is for students who are currently in 9-12th grade.
Click on the button below to register. Registration will be open through March 31 and a $100 deposit is due at the time of signing up. You also have the option to pay for half of the trip cost or the full amount. Final payments will be due May 1.
