Youth at First Presbyterian Church

Our Youth Ministry includes Middle School (Grades 6-8) and High School (Grades 9-12).  The church youth activities are open to any Christian or seeking preteen or teenager in the Fayetteville area.

Purpose of Youth Ministry:

  • Grow in personal relationship with Christ
  • Serve others through mission work/opportunities.
  • Learn and discuss relevant topics of the Christian faith.
  • Develop friendships through times of fellowship and fun.
Ways to get involved:

  • Wednesday Together: Youth meet for seminars from 5:45-6:15 p.m. and Bible study from 6:15-7 p.m.  The seminars change every 4-5 weeks and are a time for exploration of music, drama, sports, and other fields.  Teens to step out of their comfort zones and learn something new about themselves.  The Bible study that follows focuses on deepening their faith.
  • Sunday School: On Sundays from 9:45-10:45 am our youth gather to study the Bible.  It is a time full of discussions centered around Scripture.  We use God’s word to build the foundation of our faith and apply it to our daily lives.  Middle School (6th-8th grade) meet in Room 232, High School (9th-12th grade) meet in Room 228.
  • CRAVE Youth Group: What do you CRAVE?  The youth group on Sunday evenings is a time of fun and fellowship.  We eat, play, worship, and pray together.
  • Small Group Bible Studies: Once a month the teens meet in small groups divided by age and gender.  Each group has their own study that addresses topics most meaningful to them.
  • Mission: We love to share our love of Christ with others.  We strive to focus on at least one mission project a month, particularly in and around our community.  We are always looking for ways to love, help, and empower the people around us.
  • Special events – Lock-In, Ski trip, Mission trip, and more!
CRAVE Youth Ministry exists to…Challenge students to experience Jesus, so they can…Reach their community for Christ; to…Acquire accountable Christian friendships, and help them…Visualize their God-given talents, so they can…Exalt God with their lives.
