Ministries with Young People


Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s hard to believe, but fall is definitely right around the corner! This summer has been filled with special memories for my family and I hope the same is true for you. As much as I love the summer sunshine, my favorite season is fall. It’s a season filled with newness and change and I am excited about what we have coming up at First Church for your family. There is a lot of information in here, with several changes, so please read this well!

Sunday, September 21 is Rally Sunday! This is the first day of children and adult education for the new school year at the 9am hour. There will also be an informative and fun Ministry Fair planned in the Fellowship Hall between services & following the 10:30am service.

Cooperative Youth Group

cross_and_flame_colorOur United Methodist Cooperative Youth Group will be meeting this fall, but we’ve changed things a bit, so keep reading!  Instead of meeting together weekly, we’ve decided to create a monthly large group event that will be focused on building community and serving our city.  Most of the time, this event will take place on the 4th Sunday of the month, with our kickoff event on Sunday, September 28!
