Our youth are an integral part of who we are at First Presbyterian Church. We embrace a multi-generational view of ministry. Here, you won’t find the youth off in their own corner. They are part of all we do. Those who work with our youth, including Associate Pastor Billy Craig, show them who Jesus is in a range of ways, from Sunday school and small groups to retreats and mission trips.
We’re also looking for adults of all ages to connect with our youth and share with them the wisdom they have gained over the years. In that way, we will truly be a church for all generations.
Sunday School for Youth
The youth discipleship classes for grades 6 through 12 meet in room 301. Taught by Billy Craig, our pastor for youth and evangelism, and Garry Nichols. The purpose of the class is to teach scripture, fellowship with each other, and know Jesus more!
