First Church has two youth groups, a youth group for students in middle school, and a youth group for students currently attending and recently graduated from high school. Both groups meet twice each month on Sunday evenings after worship.
The purpose of our youth groups is to facilitate the mission of the church among the young people of our church. We seek to equip them and give them opportunities to become and make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a youth group, we'd encourage you to come join us. You belong here!
The middle school youth group is led by Ken Wojnarowski. Ken is the Facilities Manager here at First Church and has been working with our group since 2013. Ken is a graduate of Trinity Christian College where he majored in theology. Besides leading our middle school youth program, Ken enjoys being a leader in his local Bible Study Fellowship group, spending time with Pastor Ben, making walking sticks and hiking, studying the Old Testament, and eating chicken wings. Ken meets with the kids twice a month and takes the group on occasional outings as well.
The high school youth group is led by Pastor Ben. The group meets the first and third Sunday nights of each month and spends roughly half their time eating and playing and half their time
studying the Bible together. A number of times a year the group will go on outings together (mini-golf, out for dinner, whirlyball, Chick-fil-a day, etc.) and once during the summer months the group will go on a week long trip together. Most recently the group travelled to Estes Park, Colorado and Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
