We encourage our youth to get involved in all aspects of the church. At the same time, we have a dedicated program for 5th grade (or 11 yr olds) through 12th grade youth called "1st n 3rds". It meets the 1st and 3rd Sunday (clever, right?) of the month from 11:00am to 12:oom. During that time the youth get a chance to goof around and socialize, a snack (sometimes a meal), and to work through a faith topic specific to their age with Joe Sampson. Parents are invited to learn and go through the topics so they can work with their kids at home as well. Mixed into the general 1st n 3rd schedule are some special service and social events throughout the year.
