Youth Lock-In @ Reservoir International Training Facility
Dec 29 @ 3:00 pm – Dec 30 @ 9:00 am
This year’s Youth Lock-In is going to be amazing. It’s on December 29-30 and we will be going out to Reservoir International in Raeford. This is a recreated Afghan village where the Special Forces train. They’re letting us come out and play the most epic games of capture-the-flag, cops and robbers, and whatever else we can come up with. Then after it gets dark, we’ll head back to the church and play games for the rest of the night. There will be plenty of snacks and drinks provided. If any youth would like to bring additional snacks, please be ready and willing to share them with everyone else. Other optional items to bring include: sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes, toiletries, etc. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Jonathan West (jonathan@firstprez.com) or call the church (910-483-0121).

Summer Missions

The Middle School Summer Mission to the Raleigh area was June 11-16. To see a video of the mission, click here.

First Presbyterian young people spent a week at the Raleigh Youth Mission and each student averaged 17 hours of service for 221 hours for the week. The students worked at Family Promise, Loaves and Fishes, Ruth Sheets Adult Day Care Center, Kirk of Kildaire, and Healing Transitions. The volunteer hours saved the RYM about $3,000.
