How important it is for young folks to have Christian friends and work together as a community of Christ!

Opportunities are offered for middle and high school age youth, and for children and their families to serve our neighbors, worship, and have fun together.  Please see the church calendar or contact us for more details about upcoming events.

If you would like to be involved in youth activities at First, ask Kathleen


Youth and parents: as you start to get activity schedules for the fall, please let Kathleen know about any games, concerts, or other events so that the congregation can support you as you use the talents with which God has gifted you.

Coming Up:

Youth & Family Picnic – August 26 at 5 p.m. – All youth are invited to come out and celebrate the end of summer with a youth and family picnic at Gerry and Rose Wilson’s house.

Bible Presentation – September 9 during worship – Bibles will be presented to some of our church family’s younger readers. In this way, parents, baptismal sponsors, and the congregation together get a chance to live up to our baptismal promises to nurture these children in their growth in faith. If you have a rising 3rd grader (or a 4th grader who may not have received a Bible last year!) please let Kathleen know or email or call the church office.

ALiVE – September 28-30 at Camp Nawakwa. Alive is an event for middle school youth.
There will be friends, games, worship, faith conversation, and a campfire.
Theme – “Dear Hate…” Responding to hate in ways that reflect the love, grace and forgiveness we share in Christ.
Registration is open NOW — please talk to Kathleen before August 26.

Winterfest – December 8 & 9, 2018 at Spooky Nook. Winterfest, a weekend away for high school youth. Space is extremely limited! Please RSVP with Kathleen before August 26!

Uprise Fest – September 15 at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds. Uprise is an annual Christian music festival right in our own backyard! This is an awesome opportunity to get an
inter-generational group together to experience contemporary Christian music along with some great fellowship.
