FPC Youth

 

Plans for a weekend youth retreat at the end of the summer are being evaluated. We will keep you updated on further developments.

The Youth Ministry Team earnestly requests your continued prayers for our youth ministry. Please pray that the Lord might fill their hearts with the Holy Spirit, convict each soul of their need for Christ, encourage them to rest in His one, perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins, and order their lives unto service in His Kingdom, giving thanks for his immeasurable grace.

Youth Sunday School: Beginning on Sunday, May 26th, the Youth are welcomed to join our joint Sunday School Class in the Chapel. Sunday School will begin at 9:30 but the Youth are also encouraged to enjoy our congregation-wide time of fellowship from 9:00 to 9:30, in Ward Hall.

Congratulations to the confirmation class! Your church family is so proud of you. 🌟
