Youth at First United Church
We consider “youth” to be people in sixth through twelfth grade. Youth are a vital part of our congregation and are invited to participate at all levels. We love to have youth serve communion, read Scripture, serve as ushers, teach younger children, volunteer in the nursery, help with coffee hour, and more. To read more about youth events, check out the youth category on our news and events page.
Sunday Activities for Youth
During the 9:30 Sunday School hour, we invite youth to join our adult classes or assist with KidsWorship for younger children. Our youth group meets immediately after worship on Sundays for a shared meal and conversation. The group spends time getting to know each other, playing games, planning service events, and talking about God. Our youth group is led by Warren Wade, Rev. Dr. Jack Skiles, and Rev. Lynn James.
Baptism and Confirmation
First United provides a confirmation/baptism experience for children who have reached the age at which they are ready to do in-depth study about what it means to follow the way of Christ and be a part of a Christian community. For more information about this, please contact one of our ministers.
Want to volunteer to work with our youth?
All volunteers who work with children and youth are required to complete a screening process which includes a criminal background check. Volunteers renew their applications every three years. We also review our Youth Protection Policy with all volunteers. If you’d like to work with our children, please download an application form and turn it in to the church office.
