YOUTH & FAMILY MINISTRY
First Christian Church’s Youth & Family Ministry exists to fulfill our church’s mission of growing disciples by reaching out to the community and providing families with programs that foster an atmosphere of positive relationships; while helping to instill in our youth the principles of pledging oneself to biblical teaching, announcing the good news of Jesus Christ to our peers, respecting God in all areas of our lives, joining together to build unity in the body of Christ and yielding ourselves in service to Christ by serving others locally and globally.
Youth Group is comprised of high school and middle school age youth, grades 6-12, and meets every Wednesday throughout the school year at 6:30 p.m. Visit our Calendar or Events or YOUTH page for more scheduling information.
All high school and middle school youth are invited to weekly youth group meetings on Sundays at 6:00 PM in the Youth Room. 412 Youth is the name that the students decided on for youth group. It is based on the Scripture from 1 Timothy 4:12. Meetings are always fun, sometimes serious, occasionally separate; they may be all talk, totally fun, serving others, planning for what’s coming, and once a month out somewhere else – and food is allowed, too! For current activities and events visit the 412 Youth Facebook page.
FCC invites our youth to be involved. For instance, youth serve as Junior Deacons and receive the offering in 10:00 AM worship, and all youth are asked to help with the annual Youth Sunday service in February (Seniors preach)! Other opportunities are available too – from Mission Trips to committee work to Bell-Ringing to . . . and not to mention VBS, the Youth Mid-Winter Retreat, summer Church Camp, the End-of-the-Year Trip, and of course, the CCIW SUMMIT mountaintop weekend!
God’s Gang meets during most of the school year. All children from kindergarten through the fifth-grade are invited to attend. God’s Gang is FCC’s youth outreach program and children do not need to be a member of the church to participate. Activities include homework help, story reading, crafts, games, an evening meal and a children’s worship. This year we are continuing our junior high program for sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders called “Crossroads” that will meet during the same time period.
Registration Forms are available on the Forms dropdown menu at the top of this page.
Monthly Inspiring Children’s Events are held for elementary and pre-school children at FCC.
NURSERY / CHILDREN’S CHURCH
We don’t forget our little ones, either. During the 10:00 AM service, we offer the Nursery for babies and toddlers up to 3 years of age and Children’s Church for 4,5,6-year old’s.
