Youth Ministries

Looking for a youth group that your student WANTS to attend? At First Pres, students participate in youth ministry because of the warm community, the fun experiences, and the valuable life lessons we learn together. Because our ministry is open to all youth in grades 6-12, students easily feel welcome at "the Coach House." Plus, we meet actively and regularly to maximize opportunities for bonding and learning more about the love of Christ as found in God’s Word.
