What is YouthWorx?
YouthWorx is the Youth Ministry of First United Church of Christ for students in grades 7-12.
We aim to be “Rooted In Faith”
We meet every Sunday night from 6:30 – 8:30pm at the church for a time of fellowship, games, a message, and a discussion. YouthWorx values our youth, and we desire for them to grow in their faith (their love and understanding of God), their love of others, their understanding of God’s Love for them, and their understanding of the Bible.
Who can join?
Any student in grades 7-12 is welcome to join YouthWorx. They do not have to be members of our church, and they do not need to be connected to the church in any way; we truly welcome anyone to join us!
In addition, our young adults ages 18-23 are welcome to join us as leaders in the YouthWorx program, but they must be background checked and approved by the Youth Leadership.
