Nurturing the growth of young disciples grades 6th-12th.

Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

Our Student Ministry is made up of students grade 6 through 12. We seek to nurture the growth of young disciples in our church and our community. The core of the Youth Ministry is built around our weekly Sunday School, Wednesday night "PRIMETIME" Bible Studies, and a never ending stream of special events. We also place a very high emphasis on student leadership.

Youth Summer Mission Trips Parent Meeting

February 25th after the 10:45 a.m. Worship Service in the Pit

If your child is eager to embark on a transformative journey this summer, join us for an important meeting about the upcoming mission trips for February 25th after the 10:45 a.m. service in the Pit! During the meeting, we'll discuss trip details, the mission objectives, fundraising opportunities, and answer any questions you may have. It's the perfect chance to connect with other parents, get involved, and learn more about the incredible experiences awaiting our youth.

For more information, contact Tori Crook at tcrook@firstcentenary.com.

Confirmation

January 7th - April 28th during Sunday School in the Student Center

Confirmation will be every Sunday until April 28th during Sunday School in the Student Center. Here is to an exciting new chapter of faith!

Free Meals Campaign

Each year we ask families of the church to donate money towards our Sunday & Wednesday meals. This is a lot easier than asking parents to sign up to bring breakfasts and dinners and it is cheaper as well.

If 36 of our youth's families donate $150 then we will have enough money to pay for ALL of our meals for the entire school year. Give the full amount or give part of the amount monthly or in whatever way you would like. Some choose to give $50 per month for 3 months or $25 a month for six months. Any amount is helpful. We currently need donations for our kickoff to fall!

To give, you can click the link below or simply write a check, write "Free Meals Campaign" or "Youth Meals" in the memo line and drop it in the offering plate on Sunday or send it with your child on Wednesday night.
