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.

                                                                                   May 22nd – Youth Sunday

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.
