Youth Ministry: The Rock
The mission of our youth program at First Congregational is to encourage healthy and deep relationships with others, self, and God. With God as our rock, we can doubt, affirm, struggle, and celebrate with one another in our wild faith adventure together.
Middle School: The Rock Pile
Grades 6-8, 10:30 A.M. on Sundays
Middle Schoolers study Jesus and his teachings and Bible stories in experiential and community building ways. In addition, 6-8th graders meet monthly for fellowship.
Classes for our confirmation program a.k.a. Questformation are held during the 1st & 2nd Sundays of each month, in the “In-between Time” from 9:30 to 10:15AM. Questformation is an opportunity for confirmands to explore the Christian tradition through the lens of history and modern expressions and to engage with their peers and parents around the subject of faith in a contemporary communal setting. The monthly gatherings are enhanced by three retreats--two day long and one weekend retreat.
High School: Climb
Grades 9-12, 10:30 A.M. on Sundays
“Climb” is the High School Fellowship ministry. Climbers engage in activities, explore faith, and experience healthy relationships to self, to others, and to God.
La Foret is both a where and a what. La Foret is a retreat center outside of Colorado Springs. La Foret is also an experience. Many people who go to La Foret find peace, faith, and friends there.
Middle School Retreats
Middle School Retreats are an opportunity for youth, 6-8th grades, to experience God and relationships through fun and meaningful activities in an outdoor setting.
High School Retreats
High Schoolers get to know others in a safe environment while growing in faith in a beautiful outdoor setting.
Work Camp is a chance for 9-12th graders to help others with kind and open hearts as well as receiving the meaning of God's abundant love. We do not go to "fix" other people's problems or to convert people to our way of thinking. We seek to deepen our relationships by serving others.
2017 Work Camp: more information and application TBD.
