Youth Ministries

First Pres Youth focuses on reaching students with the love of Christ, and teaching them how to share that love with others and integrating them into the body of Christ. We provide large group events and offer small groups designed to deepen and challenge their faith and to create a place where they can grow together. Throughout the year there are special events such as weekend retreats, service projects and our two big summer events Fun in the Son summer camp and our Son Servants mission trip.
