First Youth 2018-2019 Registration

 

 

 

Beginning in September we will begin using the “Grow” Curriculum and beginning with a series on Friendship.

If you tried to define “friendship” based only on what you see on Instagram, you might think #friendship was all about group hugs, selfies with your bestie, or tagging each other in your favorite memes. But real friendship isn’t so picture perfect. In the series “Through The Fire”, we’ll challenge youth to build the kind of friendships that go beyond the surface – the kinds of friendships they’ll need when times get tough. We’ll look at three key friendships as Scripture, as well as the friendship God offers us through Jesus, as we help youth see that Godly friendships can shape us, heal us, and purify us especially during difficult times.

Bible and Breakfast

We will begin Bible and Breakfast again!! Join us as we did deeper into each weeks sermon topic and learn how we can apply it to our daily lives. 

Our first morning will be Wednesday, September 12 at 7am. We will meet at the Chick-fil-A at 1212 E. Dixie Dr in Asheboro. Parents please drop your youth off. Youth Leaders will take them to school.

Youth must bring money for breakfast. This will continue weekly on Wednesday mornings unless otherwise noted.

Contact Pastor Nina if you have any questions.

 

 CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is a time when we explore our faith through weekly meetings and other activities to learn more about Jesus and make a deeper commitment of being a disciple of Christ.  This will also be a time for you to decide whether to join the church and/or be baptized (if you haven’t already been baptized).  It is also a time when you learn more about the United Methodist Church.

Confirmation Class is offered on Sunday afternoons from 3:30-5:00pm in the spring. Please contact Minister of Discipleship, Edward Ramsey if you are interested in finding out more about Confirmation.

 

  We are a Safe Sanctuaries Congregation!

The General conference of the United Methodist Church, in April 1996, and the Western North Carolina Annual Conference, in June 2004, adopted resolutions aimed at reducing the risk of abuse of children and youth in the church. This would include sexual, emotional, physical and ritual abuse and neglect. 

The purpose for establishing our Safe Sanctuary policy and the procedures is to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth in all of our children and youth in the church. In all of our ministries with children and youth, our congregation is committed to demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ so that each child and youth will be “surrounded by steadfast love, established in the faith and confirmed and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal”.   

Safe Sanctuary Trainings are held regularly. Background Checks are done on all staff and volunteers who work with our children/youth at the church. Please contact Minister of Discipleship, Edward Ramsey or the church office for more information.

 

Special events happen often throughout the year, so watch our calendar and follow First Youth on instagram, and make sure to like our First Youth Asheboro page on Facebook to keep up with everything that is going on here with First Youth.
