making disciples of the next generation

The goal of our student ministry is to reach the next generation with the gospel and equip them to become disciple-makers who know and treasure Christ.  We have a great team of committed leaders who love students and seek to invest in them personally week in and week out, and whenever possible, we seek to partner with parents and encourage them as the spiritual leaders of their children.  Our aim is to give students a solid foundation to their faith, so that when they leave home, they will be prepared for adulthood and walk with Christ for a lifetime - seeking to change the world for His glory.

midweek gathering

Our midweek gathering is a great way for teenagers to get connected in Christ-centered community. Each week, we worship together, study God's Word together and discuss it in small groups, and have tons of fun! Our Middle School ministry consists of 5-8th graders, and our High School ministry 9-12th graders.  Both groups meet together every Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm for a free meal.  After that, Middle School meets from 6:30-7:45, and High School meets from 7:00-8:30.  We'd love for you to come join us and get involved! If you have any questions, please contact Chad Race at crace@pgfirst.com.

sunday mornings

Our students meet together each Sunday morning at 9:00 am for Bible study. Middle School students (5-8th grade) gather upstairs in the main building in Room 201. High School students (9-12th grade) gather in the Student Center (South building). For more information, please contact Chad Race at crace@pgfirst.com.

Upcoming events

In addition to our weekly gatherings on Wednesdays and Sundays, we plan a number of events and activities throughout the year to help students grow in their faith and have fun together (i.e. camps, retreats, mission trips, service projects, road trips, game nights...you get the idea).  Check out what's coming up below:
