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 3-12, students easily feel welcome at "the Coach House." Youth Groups meet the 1st and 3rd Sundays.

2024 Dates TBD
We had a wonderful week of Surf City camp this year! We filled up a 15-passenger van with 13 students & 2 leaders and went out to beautiful western Michigan for a week of fun activities including tubing, Sand Dune hiking, swimming, laser tag, big group games, and more! Students also LOVED the energic worship music & relatable sermons every evening in "Club." We also had some deep, meaningful discussions about Christ, faith, etc. around the campfire on more than one occasion.
