Our Student Ministry is a safe place for Middle School and High School students to make friends and see who God really is. We all have different backgrounds, life-experiences, and ideas of what God is like. Here we live out our mission of leaving a spiritual legacy for the next generation of Christ-followers and have fun investing in our young adults.

All students are welcome to our student ministry and they don't have to be a member of our church or any church. From special events to our regular gatherings, students will love this ministry.

Weekend Worship

We believe worship is for everyone including the next generation. Students are not only welcome in worship but they are also encouraged to serve alongside our adults and lead worship. Students can play in the band, sing in the choir, usher, and more. Check out all three of our unique worship services here.

Wednesday Night | Middle School

On a regular Wednesday Night 6th through 8th grade students gather at 7:15 p.m. at the church. Most nights we start with a game, we worship, we have a practical and life-changing lesson out of the Bible, and then break into small groups. 

Some nights we do local mission work and serve our community. No matter what we are doing, we are fully present for each other. We care for each other and we have fun all in the name of Jesus!

Wednesday Night Student Miniistry will resume August 21, 2019! See you there!

Sunday Night | High School

For High School students we strive to connect in meaningful ways and dive deep into life's tough questions. Pastor Doug hosts High School students at his home on Sundays at 7:00 p.m. and helps these young adults develop spiritually.

For more information on our High School student gatherings call the church office at 532-1478.


At First Church we host a Confirmation Class each year for students in 8th Grade and beyond. In Confirmation, students will learn the who, what, when, where, why and how of being a Christ-follower. They will also discover more about our denomination, the United Methodist Church. More importantly, students will be equipped with the tools to make the decision to follow Jesus Christ and be in relationship with Him. Our goal is that students would learn what building that relationship means and how to carry forward in life.

Confirmation meets from 6:15-7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year. The class is led by Pastor Doug and each student will be paired with a mentor from the church.

Mission Trips and More

We give our students opportunities to serve locally as well and go on an annual mission trip.

When we serve, we get out of our comfort zones and help students see the world in a new way. We help them understand their faith at a practical level.

This year we will depart May 31 and return June 2 on a Mission trip to Denver, CO. Email Adam for more information on this Mission opportunity.
