Here at First Christian Church our children and youth are offered a wide variety of exciting opportunities to enjoy meaningful relationships within the church family, experience ministry as we serve others, and develop Christian values which affect every area of life (All while having a blast!). It is our goal to provide fun in a caring atmosphere for every young person we meet. We encourage you to seek out ways for your child(ren) to participate in many of the age appropriate activities.
Our mission with youth focuses on spiritual and personal growth through programs of worship, fellowship, study, and service. First Christian Church believes in the power of youth and the role they will play in the future as leaders and members, as well as the role they play in the church today. First Christian Church encourages all youth to join together in the adventure of growth and learning as young Christians. We teach youth to "Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." (I Timothy 4:12). Visitors are always welcome to be a part of our youth activities.
CHRISTIAN YOUTH FELLOWSHIP takes place every Wednesday night, year-round, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. This is a time for 6th-12th graders to get together for a simple dinner, games, and devotional time. Concerts, movies, scavenger hunts, Six Flags, conferences and retreats are just a few of the wide range of weekend activities CYF enjoys.

JUNIOR DISCIPLES is offered to all children 4 years old - 6th grade students. Junior Disciples provides a mid-week opportunity for children to eat, play, worship and learn. We meet on Tuesday evenings September through May, from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. Meetings include a simple dinner, games, a true story from the Bible and an active learning experience.

MISSION TRIPS are the highlight of our year. CYF takes a week to travel to a community and minister to them where they need it the most. Whether we are working on houses, assisting in a nursing home, or offering a kids' club, there are always plenty of ways to help. These trips are designed to teach our youth what it means to be disciples acting as Christ's hands and feet in the world around us.
CAMPS AND RETREATS are a big part of the area youth ministry programs. Disciples of Christ have a wonderful camping program for 2nd-12th graders. There is also a family camp offered for all ages. These camps provide God-centered outdoor adventures, and ministries that offer youth many new and exciting opportunities. The camping programs serve to build Christian character and community while exploring beliefs, new skills, and God's gifts. Summer camping is a safe, meaningful, and fun experience for the youngest beginner to the most experienced camper. For camp and retreat forms click HERE
