First Church shares with our sister church, Mayflower United Church of Christ, a full time youth ministry program.
The youth groups meet each Wednesday:
K – 6th grade meet from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
Grades 7 – 12 meet from 6-8 pm.
The older youth also meet on Sunday mornings during worship time while the younger youth have church school.
Mission trips (2013 to Belize) provide opportunities to experience other cultures, work together and to share a common experience.
“Our Whole Lives” a sex education class is held each year.
Confirmation is held every two years.
First Congregational United Church of Christ is a Safe Church in that all of our adult working with youth have gone through training and have had extensive background checks. We want everyone to feel welcome and safe at this sacred place.
