This Youth Ministry exists to restore people and rebuild places with the gospel of Jesus Christ as we make disciples of our covenant youth and their friends.
Discipleship groups are for students in grades 7-12. They are grouped based on gender and age, and placed with an adult leader who will lead and shepherd them. These groups address three big needs in the life of a follower of Jesus:
- Discipleship—growth in students' relationships with Christ;
- Fellowship—growth in students' relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ; and
- Evangelism—growth in students' relationship to the world in order to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Discipleship groups meet at First Pres on Sunday afternoons from 5 to 6:15 p.m.
