Faithful Youth Serving Him
At First Church we believe that our youth are our future. To help our young people navigate the demands and expectations that are thrown at them, we have formed a supportive and interactive youth group.
Our FYSH groups meet twice a month. These meetings can be an excursion, retreat, service project, retreat or a supportive meeting. To grow fellowship among teens we hold some of our get togethers at First Church, while some are held jointly with Second Church Youth Group – God’s Squad. This year, we will again offer two different retreats, one single night retreat to Heifer Farm, and one two night retreat to Mt. Monadnock Bible Center. If you would like to learn more about our youth groups, please contact Tracy Gervais in the Church School, or Jim & Debbie Yesu, Youth Leaders.
