Middle School & High School Youth Ministry
2018 Mission Trip
Explore ways to be LinC-ED (Living in Christ Every Day) with our youth in a strong faith to serve and make a difference in an ever-changing world.
Engage young people in faith discussions in a safe environment and provide experiences to support them in strengthening their personal relationship with Jesus Christ; while walking with them as they endeavor to make a difference in a broken world.
At First Christian Church (DoC) Danville, KY, we welcome and accept ALL youth from varied backgrounds; enabling them in understanding that they are treasured and loved in the eyes of God and our First Christian family.
Our Middle and high school youth have unique fellowship opportunities to spend time working together and support each other on their Christian journey. We regularly meet during the school year on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Our Wednesday youth program is held during the school year at 6:00 pm with dinner beforehand at 5:30 pm. The group meets at FCC for a time of bonding and fellowship. The Sunday evening program is part of an ecumenical youth group with The Presbyterian Church of Danville and Trinity Episcopal Church, both in the Danville community. Our youth programs are divided into middle and high school age groups. All youth from other churches meet on Sundays at 5:15 - 7:30 pm for dinner and break out session for study/activities.
We lead and participate in a variety of ways during Sunday worship throughout the year. One youth representative serves on the church board.
In Matthew 28:16-20 we find the GREAT COMMISSION from Christ to all his disciples "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations..." First Christian's focus is on the youth. We are assisted by our generous congregation, in raising funds for our trips enabling us to witness by serving the hungry, the poor and those in need. We take Christ’s words to heart by serving God and making a difference in the world through our actions. Beginning in 2002, we commit ourselves to summer mission trips. Our work includes local, regional, national and international trips on an annual rotational basis. Trips have included San Antonio, TX, St. Louis, MO, Tennessee Outreach Project (Mountain T.O.P.), the Heifer Ranch in Perryville, AK and more. Each trip offers life changing and fulfilling growth experiences as we step out of our comfort zones to serve and love others as Christ loves and commands us. When we return from our trips, we share our experiences with the congregation through worship experiences, anecdotes and photographs during morning worship.
