Youth Ministry

“Our Mission is to partner with youth to develop a vibrant, maturing, and enduring faith in Jesus Christ.”

Youth Groups, Bible Study, & Mission Trips for Grades 6-12

Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Church seeks to create experiences for youth that are fun, safe, social and Christ-centered. The intimate size of our group allows our ministry to be very relational and intentional, with no student falling through the cracks. Above all, our ministry exists to guide students along in their faith journey, as they build a relationship with our Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

We welcome all youth from the La Crosse community to our programs and events, regardless of church membership or religious affiliation. We love having friends and visitors join us, even if just for a night.

Our Programs for youth:

Bible Study: Both the middle school and high school classes meet in the Coach House on Sunday mornings at 9:30 (between the two services).

Youth Groups: We have separate youth group programs for middle school and high school students, each with a different meeting location and time.
To read more about youth groups, visit our Youth Groups page.

Special Events & Outings: We provide special events and outings for our students, their friends, and youth in the community. We try to do these on a monthly basis. Check out FIESTA FRIDAYs: themed parties for grades 6-8 on the first Friday of most months during the school-year.

Summer Trips: We take a group of students entering grades 6-9 to Surf City camp each summer. High school students entering grades 10-12 go on a mission trip every summer.
