The youth program at First Christian Church is comprised of young people in grades 3-12. The Youth gather on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a meal, Bible study, and games! Once a month a fun trip is planned to such places as Carowinds, the movies, Appalachian Ski Mountain, etc.

The Youth try on mustaches at the Carolina Renaissance Festival

Throughout the school year the Youth  participate in a few community outreach programs, such as the Crop Hunger Walk, Samaritan Ministries, Christmas caroling for homebound church members, etc. The Youth also take an annual Summer Mission Trip to Christmount Work Camp, which is located in Black Mountain, NC.

The Youth enjoy their hike down Stone Mountain along the cascading waterfall.

This Fall, the Youth have a number of exciting events on their schedule:

October 16th – Movie Night at Marketplace Cinemas

October 18th – Forsyth County Crop Walk

October 30th – Trunk or Treat

November 7th – CMF Fish Fry

November 14th – Renaissance Festival

December 13th – Christmas Pageant

December 18th – Christmas Caroling

December 18th-19th – Lock-in at FCC

Each May a particular Sunday is designated as “Youth Sunday” and all of the children and Youth are involved in worship, serving as leaders for the entire service.  They present a skit or play, serve as elders and deacons, read scripture and usually provide the sermon itself.  The event is well-attended and helps to connect the congregation with the Youth and children of the church.
