Growth Groups

(adult small groups)

Christianity isn't meant to be lived alone. All of us need people to walk alongside us when we are going through the big moments in our lives - marriage or divorce, having children or their graduation, parents aging or our own medical diagnosis... it helps to have a group with us during life's major transitions.


Growth groups are a group of friends, people to learn with, study the Bible with, friends we can pray for and people who pray for us. Growth groups are sort of a little church, inside the much larger First Church family.


If you want to get connected email Pastor Jennifer.

First Kids (0-4th grade)

First Kids helps to lead new generations in new life with Jesus (birth through 4th grade). Every Sunday we have age-appropriate learning environments that are designed to help children grow in love with God.


With your children's safety in mind, First Kids team members are background checked, interviewed and well trained. We also have a state-of-the-art, safe and secure children's check-in system.


Our Connections Team (people welcoming you for worship) would love to help you find the awesomeness of First Kids!

FUSE (5th-6th grade)

The Fuse is a worship experience created just for your 5th-6th grader! The Fuse, just like First Kids, uses lessons from Orange. This is a jam-packed, full hour of great music, discussion and activities. Your pre-teen will learn to love and live more like Jesus.


The Fuse runs during our 11am Journey Worship.

First Youth (7th-12th grade)

First UMC Youth is a great place to make friends, have fun and grow in your faith. We gather together in different size groups and activities; from large group mission projects or fun outings to smaller Youth Growth Groups.


These smaller groups are a place where similar age youth can ask questions, have faith conversations and 'do life' together.


For more information about youth, email Mike Moyers.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a time of preparation where students learn the basics of our faith and have the opportunity to confirm the promises made on their behalf at their baptism...or if they haven't been baptized, to make the vows of membership on their own. Confirmation is for 7th-9th graders who want to explore the history of our faith, the importance of living a Christian life, and their place in the church.
