“Helping youth follow Jesus and live life abundantly.”

The teenage years are an important time in every person’s life and can be very difficult. Youth grow and change emotionally, socially, and spiritually. They gain independence and claim a belief system as their own. That’s why First Reformed Church provides a youth ministry that achieves three goals:

1. We are an “oasis of belonging,” a safe place for every youth to be an active member of a group.

2. We “raise the banner” of Jesus, by using the Bible and encouraging a more committed relationship with Jesus.

3. We have as much fun as humanly possible in everything we do.
