Opportunities for Youth
Sunday School & fellowship
Earlier this autumn our youth gathered at the country home of FPC members for a Fall Festival featuring a hay hide, campfire and feeding the goats! Our Chili Cook Off to benefit youth mission trips and conferences was held November 24. We regularly participate in FPC's "Pick Up and Reach Out" neighborhood cleanup project. The Youth Christmas Party and Gift Exchange was held on December 8 at 5:00 PM at the church. All teens are welcome!

Trips, Retreats, LockIns & More!
Each year the youth take summer missions trips and participate in camps and conferences.
In July, 2019, our youth attended the Presbyterian Youth Triennium at Purdue University! We joined Presbyterians from Mid-Missouri, teens all the way from Hungary, and over 3,000 other youth for a fun-filled, spiritually powerful week!
In late July and early August our youth traveled to Pine Ridge, South Dakota to work with the local Native American population! It was a wonderful week of mission and ministry.

youth elders and deacons
Trivia Night has been a fundraiser for the youth
for many years. Each spring we come together
for fun, laughter and a time of generous hearts
so our Youth can continue going on mission trips and conferences each summer. Due to the COVID-19 Crisis Trivia Night Scheduled for March 14th, 2020 has been postponed. It will be rescheduled when large gatherings are allowed.
Email Audra - for more information.
Each year, youth from our congregation have the opportunity to be servant leaders as members of our Session and Board of Deacons. Nominees are chosen by the Nominating Team, in consultation with Youth Ministry Team, and are then approved by a congregational vote, just like all other deacons and elders. If nominated and approved, the Youth Elder and Deacon serve one year terms as members of these governing bodies of our church. The elder and deacon receive the same training as all other nominees and are full voting members of the group they sit on. This is a great way for our youth to be leaders in the church today!
