FPC Youth Group
High School and Junior High can be a time of both great opportunity and challenge. Students are exploring talents and gifts, yet they are faced with increasing pressure and “real-world” problems. It’s a time in life when the benefits of true friendship and mentors start to become evident.
First Presbyterian is committed to helping youth in high school and middle school navigate the waters and apply their faith. Through games, Bible study, outings, and friendship, youth can find that their faith does matter and they are loved by God.
Our youth are led by Melissa Dickerson. For more information, please contact the church office or Melissa!
Each Sunday from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. the youth share dinner together and have a program. Whether it involves a presentation, small group discussions, mission work, or a recreation activity, it is a great way for our youth to expand their faith and bond together.
Wednesday nights are for youth sixth through twelfth grade and begin at 6:00 p.m. in the basement. We meet together for fellowship before breaking into groups (typically of Senior High and Junior High) for a Bible study. It is a great mid-week opportunity to check on each other and refocus. We’d love to have you or your youth join us!

This has worked beautifully, but has made meals our responsibility. […]
The youth are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas season! We will gather December 15 to celebrate the first night of Christmas break together with a lock-in around town and at the church. We will have a Progressive Dinner to be hosted by Wanda and George Dent, Judy Thomas and Ann and Chauncey Godwin before […]
Today, we began our morning canoeing and kayaking the Abiquiu Reservoir. We stopped in King’s Cove; while some swam, a group of us took a short hike to a mud pit and got “Simba’d” (one of our leaders put a mud stripe across our forehead to mark that we had successfully crossed the freezing cold, […]
Our service project today was restoring an old building on site to be used for Ghost Ranch’s “Spiritual Guidance Center.” This involved clearing brush and weeds, laying a pathway, and cleaning the inside. We transformed the space from unusable to something special. This project was supposed to take all day… but we finished it before […]
