For Your Reflection....


Let’s be honest...explaining to others who we are as a church is not always an easy task.  With a name like “Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)”, you’ve said a mouthful, but you might find people looking at you like you haven’t clarified anything; or worse they may get the wrong impression.  I remember speaking with a woman about my church – upon hearing that we were part of the Christian Church (D.O.C.) she exclaimed, “that sounds like one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches!  Are you one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches?”  I explained that yes, we do believe in the Bible, but no, we probably are not the stereotypical ‘bible-thumping’ church that she is thinking more

Sunday Night Youth Groups (SNYG)

Sunday Night Youth Groups have been one of the largest and most successful programs at First Christian Church. SNYG is a dynamic and exciting program that is built on First Christian's belief that children and youth ministry are paramount to the mission of the church. We are committed to provide a safe and holy environment for youth to grow in their faith, to develop their own sense of belief, and to be nurtured by their youth leaders into lifelong disciples of Christ.

We meet on Sunday afternoons during the school year from 3:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. The youth are divided into four Youth Groups based on their age. The Youth Groups are as follows:

Kids Youth Fellowship (KYF) - Ages 4 - Grade 1
Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) - Grades 2 - 4
Chi-Rho (XP) - Grades 5 - 8
Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF) - Grades 9 - 12

All the youth participate in SNYG by playing games and sharing a snack together. The four groups also separate and the youth leaders engage their particular group with a thoughtful lesson or activity. We then bring everyone together and close each SNYG with a youth only, youth lead worship service. Each week a different group from SNYG is invited to participate in leading our worship.

If you are the parent of a youth between 4 - 18, we invite you to join us one Sunday evening and see for yourself what Sunday Night Youth Group is all about! Or if you have any questions about our program or our philosophy of youth ministry, please contact Rev. Laura Phillips.

"Regular" Sunday Night Youth Group (SNYG) will begin on August 21st! We will meet 3:00pm - 5:00pm on Sunday evenings for games, fellowship, a lesson, a snack and worship. We hope you will join us!
