The youth experience at First United Presbyterian Church guides youth to further understand their faith in Jesus Christ while also teaching them practical ways to live in community and spread God’s love throughout the world. The youth enjoy bible studies, retreats, and recreation events that help mold their faith and strengthen their love for the church. Youth will have a chance to make a visible difference in the world as we participate in many outreach opportunities through work with local agencies, national mission trips, and even international relief efforts. The youth a First United Presbyterian Church seek to love and welcome all!

- 6th – 7th Grade – Youth are invited to deepen and develop their faith through confirmation. While participating in Sunday school, worship, and the life of the church throughout these first two years of middle school, during each of the two winters (January to March) there is a ten-week confirmation specific class offered. This two-year long experience encourages youth to deepen their understanding of the Presbyterian Church, the Christian faith, their own faith, and their place as members of the Body of Christ.
