In addition to weekly Sunday School and Logos, First Presbyterian Church hosts middle school fun nights and fundraisers. Every fall we attend an awesome weekend retreat at Timberlake Ranch Camp near Marquette, Nebraska. The middle school mission trip is four days of service, worship, Bible study, and fun during the summer break. In August the youth share their mission trip experiences with the congregation during Youth Sunday worship service.
Sunday School and Logos for high school students are held weekly during the school year. There are also fun activities or fundraisers scheduled about once a month throughout the year. A ski trip during spring break is a new addition to our calendar. In the spring, we go on a weekend retreat at Ignite Youth Conference in Des Moines, IA. Our week-long mission trip is the highlight of every summer. Every third year the Presbyterian Church USA holds a national youth conference called Triennium.
Confirmation is a Christian Education encounter for students in 8th grade and above. The class provides an opportunity for discipleship, service, profession of faith, and preparation for active church membership. Classes begin in the fall, and culminate in the spring with Confirmation Sunday. Each student is paired with an adult mentor in the congregation. Confirmation meets on Wednesday nights during Logos.
