Youth Group

The mission of First Church of Christ Youth Group is to build up these children for a life of Kingdom Work.
We, as sponsors, want to teach these children how to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. In order to complete this mission we meet regularly for meals, have lessons, attend Christian events, participate in Church activities, and serve our community. 

Youth Sponsor Team:

Our youth sponsor team is led by Pastor Matthew Kinley and his wife, Shana. Deacon Mike Johnson and his wife and women’s council member, Michell. As well as women’s council member, Erin Ferguson. The sponsors recognize the authority of God, and realize that they are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. They desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word as a model and example for the children. 

Current Study: The Parables of Jesus

For the last year and a half the students have been studying the Parables of Jesus in an effort to better know our Savior and to create a book to share with their families and our congregation. The sponsor team has rotated through teaching lessons where the students have read the parables and outlined Key Words, Observations, and Applications. 

Beyond the Lessons: Resurrection Sunday – Sunrise Service

First and foremost, we invite you to join us at 7:00 am on Sunday, March 31, 2024 for the Youth Led Sunrise Service. From January through March the youth will be spending part of their Wednesday evenings preparing for this service. During the Sunrise Service we will praise the Lord through song, communion, tithe, and a powerful drama. 

Service: Soup Sale – February 18, 2024

The youth group hosts fundraiser events to give the students opportunities to serve and to raise funds for the Christian events we attend. The February Service event will be a soup sale directly following the church service and lasting until the soup is gone. The soups available will be: Stuffed Pepper, Cheeseburger, Chicken Tortellini, and Ham and Potato. The cost is $7 per 16 oz of soup, a roll, and dessert. 



Appreciation Sunday: February 4, 2024

The youth will be providing snacks in the fellowship hall before and after the church service. We invite you to mingle with us following church so that we can show you our appreciate for your prayers and support.
