Here at First, we place special value in the discipleship of our young people, and we believe the preteen and teenage years to be foundational for adopting Christ-like service. We have several targeted programs and events for our jr highers and high schoolers designed to help them to transition into actively being the Church.
This summer we will be invading the homes of our students! Each Thursday in the summer, we will meet in a different home for student-led devotionals and fun. Check the church calendar for individual dates!
Jr highers and high schoolers think very differently, so on Sunday mornings we have classes designed specifically for these two pivotal age groups.
- High School - 8a @ Crossroads
- Jr High - 8a @ Crossroads
Every* Sunday night from 5-7p, our jr highers and high schoolers meet together in Crossroads for youth group. During this time, students enjoy student-led worship, carefully crafted lessons, and intentional small group discussions. This time is designed for students to solidify their own faiths in a question-safe environment.
Annual Service Opporunities
Throughout the year, we offer students the opportunity to serve their church and their community. This is typically in the form of student-served dinners, outreach, and service projects. For the next opportunity, check the calendar!
Each year we take trips out of Pittsfield to connect, recharge, and dig deeper. These events include camp at Mississippi Valley Christian Service Camp, CIY, Dare2Share, and smaller outings like bonfires and Six Flags trips. For info on the next event, check the calendar!
