"Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.  In all your ways, commit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5

FPC's Student Ministries exist to help students KNOW God, GROW in relationship with Him and each other, and to GO serve others in Jesus’ name.

Confirmation/Student Ministry Sunday – April 29
FPC will celebrate Confirmation and Student Ministry Sunday on April 29. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear students share how God’s love has transformed them and why they have chosen to profess their faith in Christ and commit their lives to his work.

Be Adventurous! Dare to test your comfort zone and explore the real you! If you are currently in 8-12 grade, we invite you to apply for our summer mission and/or our summer backpacking trip.  These trips are sure to have fun, excitement, adventure, friendships, and a chance to discover more about God and yourself! I hope you can participate in these wonderful opportunities!

Living Faith Together, Ezrah
