Youth group around a fire

Middle and High School Youth Group is a dynamic ministry here at First Church with programs including weekly fellowship at 7:30pm via Zoom during COVID-19 unless substituted with a small social-distance outdoor activity. Our fellowship time is filled with conversations around the intersection between faith and justice, understanding how systemic evil such as racism, sexism, and poverty do not fit the vision of God’s Kingdom. We also focus on individual and communal spiritual formation, grounded in scripture as our guide towards a liberated world.

Our most current events include an outdoor social-distant retreat on Sunday, March 28, 2021 at 9:30am focusing on American Indian liberation and anti-incarceration, followed by a Good Friday service on Friday, April 2 at 4:00pm, and Easter Sunrise service on April 4 at 6:00am.
