Fun and Fellowship

Youth Group is all about finding fun and enriching ways of learning about God, growing in faith, and spending time together as a young group of believers. There are a variety of activities offered throughout the academic year for youth in Middle and High School. Outdoor activities such as bonfires and canoeing, indoor events such as movie nights and service projects, and Presbytery-wide youth retreats are all part of the Youth Group experience. Join us and bring your friends!

Confirmation Class

FPC offers confirmation as a one-year class for Middle Schoolers. Most youth are confirmed at the end of their eighth-grade year. Confirmation Class prepares youth to join FPC as members with knowledge of not only our church, but also the PC(USA) structure and doctrine. The curriculum and activities are designed to help youth deepen their understanding of and relationship with Christ.
