Youth Ministry

The Youth Ministry at Fourth Presbyterian Church is an engaging community for its Junior High and Senior High youth and their friends that SURROUNDS youth with an unconditional love  that fosters genuine relationships, ANCHORS them in the joys and traditions of the Christian faith and ENERGIZES and equips them to extend the love of Christ to the world.  In addition to retreats, mission trips, ski trips, service projects, and other special events, our regular meeting times are on Sunday mornings and nights. All of our programs are designed with our Youth Ministry values in mind.

Small Groups

Small Groups meet one Sunday night a month in host homes around our communities.  Groups are divided by gender and grades, and there is a time for dinner and fellowship, followed by a discussion based on a piece of media from popular culture.  This includes viewing/listening to the media, conversation about themes and connections to God, use of relevant scripture, prayer and more, all led by adult Small Groups leaders.  Please contact the church for dates, times and locations.
