Welcome to youth ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Athens! Our mission is to draw youth into a journey of faith, prepare them for lifelong discipleship, and inspire them to carry the love of Christ to Athens and the world.
The youth are fortunate to have their own special space, lovingly called “The PIT”, located on the basement level of the church. The PIT features small group break-out rooms, a kitchen, pool tables and comfortable couches to just hang out. We meet here each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. for a time of fellowship, reflection and discussion about how our faith shapes our lives. Each year youth plan and lead a worship service. If you missed this year’s Youth Sunday, you can read what our amazing youth wrote here.
On Sunday evenings, we come back together for dinner followed by programs focused on mission, discipleship, or just plain fun! In the summers, we take a break from our Sunday programming to go to Montreat, on Mission Trips and to participate in local day-long service projects.
Our youth group is a fun, active, welcoming group, and we hope you will join us!
