We offer a variety of programs for the young people in our congregation. Check out the list of programs below, and see which one is right for you and your young ones!
Youth Sunday school and nursery services are offered during both of our services. Sunday School classes meet in the Christian Education Bldg as follows:
Classroom #6 - Nursery
Classroom #7 - Ages 1-4
Classroom #2 - Elementary
Classroom #1 - Jr High
Senior High students meet in the Main Bldg.
For our junior high and high school students. we meet as The Fellowship from 5:00 - 7:00 PM every Thursday in the youth building. This building is the one in the northeast parking lot over the garage. Each week, we eat food, play ping-pong, and foosball, sing songs, engage in theological discussion, pray together, and spend time with one another. Come and join us, and bring a friend or two with you to share in The Fellowship!
Homework & Hangout
Every Wednesday from 4-6 PM young people of all ages are welcome to join us for Homework and Hangout. This program is designed to stimulate the mind, spirit, body, and creative nature of the young people in our community. We now have a “making things” activity in our Creative Corner.
Homework and Hangout is a drop-in style program, so young people may be dropped off and picked up at any time between 4-6 PM. Dinner will be served to all participants at the end of the program. We hope you can join us!
Also, the schedule for Homework and Hangout can be changed as well:
4:00-4:15 - Students arrive and enjoy free play
4:15-4:40 - Homework help and asset building creative activity
4:40-5:00 - Mindfulness and prayer
5:00-5:15 - Songs and Bible story
5:15-5:30 - Free play and prepare for dinner
5:30-6:00 - Dinner, free play, and parent pick-up

Special Monthly Events
We also offer monthly outings for youth. Some of these events are for all ages, and some are specifically for junior and senior high students, so be sure to check which event is for which group!
Check out the information below for what we're doing and where we are going this month!
Monday, March 18- 7:00-8:30pm: All ages event: Movie Night at FPC. We’ll meet in the sanctuary to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day together by watching The Secret of Kells, an imaginative and beautifully animated film about a Celtic boy who works to save his town from Vikings! Popcorn and lemonade will be provided.
Saturday, March 23rd - Jr. & Sr. High event: Lord of the Rings Marathon at the Sweet’s house! We’ll spend the day hanging out in the Sweet’s home theatre, playing board games, snacking, probably eating pizza, and just plain ol’ hanging out with each other. Come for some of the day, come for all of the day (hopefully, this one, as Lord of the Rings is the best). Please RSVP to Adam (contact info below) so he can plan accordingly and get you the address to the Sweet’s abode!
Service Project - This moth, we are going to collect needed items for the Safe Harbor Crisis Center. This organization serves as a shelter for families experiencing domestic abuse, and provides them with resources and other services to help these victims get out of the horrific situation in which they have been put. Safe Harbor needs all sorts of items, and a take home flyer and list will be at Homework and Hangout and The Fellowship so we can round up as many of these items as possible during the month of March for women and families affected by these tragic circumstances.
For more information on any of the youth events or if you have any questions or concerns or if cost is an issue for any event, please reach out to youth director Adam Tobey by phone (385-244-9300) or via email (email@example.com).
