We Have a Year Round Ministry With Youth at First Pres!

Junior High Students

Starting the second week in September, junior high students meet every Saturday night at 7:30pm in the Teen Center (lower level, sanctuary building).

Senior High Students

Starting the second week in September, senior high students meet every Wednesday at 7:30pm in the Teen Center.

Teen Bible Study

Youth meet every Sunday (September-June) at 10am in the Teen Center with Eli Tyler for Bible study.


Each year eighth through twelfth graders are welcome to this special program to help students understand faith and the church. Classes usually begin in February.

Summer Camp

Each summer we sponsor, with Long Island Youth for Christ, three camping experiences for youth: Senior High Camp at Wildwood, New Jersey; Junior High Camp at North East, Maryland; and a hiking, rafting adventure camp for senior highs.
