The Student Ministry at First Church serves grades 6-12. We offer an experience that allows students to worship God in a way that makes it easy for them to invite their friends no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. We also strive to connect our students to each other by encouraging them to participate in small group studies where they will learn more about how to grow in their own personal relationship with God.
