As a mission the First Presbyterian’s Youth Ministry is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with teenagers within the Lancaster and Fairfield County area. Our goal through sharing the Good News is to help teens understand that God is calling them to have an everyday growing relationship with Him. Through that relationship we guide and encourage them to share Jesus with others.   

Our regular events mix fun with worship, discussion, and games that foster a deeper relationship with God. Other opportunities offered throughout the year are service projects, mission trips and retreats. Through these events we show the teens what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community. Every event has a goal and purpose that invites the Holy Spirit to preside over the event and reveal something new to all of us.  

The middle school program is for all students in grades 6 through 8 and meets each Wednesday from 6:00 to 8:00p. High School students in grades 9 through 12 meet Sunday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00p. All meetings are held in the Youth Room accessed by the Broad Street entrance.  

Youth ministry questions and inquiries may be directed to the office. Check out the Youth Group Facebook page. You may also follow us on our Twitter page. Weekly updates, information and events are posted to keep you in the know.
