The Youth Ministry of First Church guides youth in sixth through twelfth grade to seek and love God and love and serve people. Our Youth Ministry creates ways for youth to explore a relationship with Christ and build relationships with other Christ-following youth and adults. Led by Interim Director of Youth Ministry, Camille Layton.

Volunteers are always needed to help our children and youth explore their faith and develop a community of support. Commitments range from one-time event volunteers to reoccurring small group leaders. For more information about opportunities, or to request more information, visit our children and youth ministry volunteer page.
