Children and Youth

On Sunday mornings, we provide a nursery for children ages 0-4. Preschool and Kindergarten begin class at 9:15am, 15 minutes before the start of worship. First through 8th grades begin classes following the Children’s Message.

All children and families are welcome at FCCSM.

Confirmation

Confirmation helps our young people take real responsibility for understanding their faith and its power. Through service opportunities, mentor relationships, and the challenge to do a whole lot more than just learn a few facts,  they see the church and their faith as something that truly belongs to them. Confirmation will help teens build a bond that will last throughout their Christian lives.

At the end of their confirmation journey together, each youth will choose whether or not to be confirmed as a sign of their ability to take charge of their own spiritual lives. All participants, whatever their decision, are honored in a special service dedicated to their work, exploration, and discoveries.

Confirmation is recommended for all 9th graders, but open to any high school students who have not yet been confirmed. Please sign up now by completing a registration form!

Youth Group

With support from our congregation along with hard working fundraising efforts, the youth in our church community are able to accomplish great things.

A typical youth group year kicks off in September with a group trip to Kimball’s Farm for fun and entertainment. In October, our youth go apple picking at Tougas Farm. Afterward, they use all of their freshly picked apples to bake apple pies and deliver them to a local homeless shelter. December presents an opportunity for our youth to support our youth alums who are attending college by sending them care packages as they prepare for their final exams. With the football season coming to an close in January, it marks our youth group’s Super Bowl Sub fundraiser. Not only does our church get to enjoy some yummy delicious subs, but their monies also go directly toward the funding of the annual mission trip. The mild May weather provides a great opportunity to participate in one of the many local walk/run events that benefit our community. And to culminate the year, the youth group heads out of town in June on a mission trip where they put in many hours of hard work to help improve the lives of others in need.

As one can see, our youth program does a lot and would love to have you participate as well! God is making a difference in our youth and our youth are making a difference in the world. Please join in on the good work by registering below. Youth group gatherings are typically on Sunday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm.
