Youth Group

The youth ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Cedar Rapids exists to create an environment of love and acceptance where our youth can learn, worship, serve, grow and have fun together, and where a spiritual foundation is developed that will inspire them to continue to have a life-long relationship with Christ.            

In addition to Sunday School, we offer Wednesday night youth group, mission trips, service opportunities, and all-generational monthly fellowship events.

We currently offer a Wednesday evening online youth group for elementary aged children. Please contact the church office for the link and password for this group.

Our middle school and senior high youth group meet at different times, but share an overlapping shared meal from 7:00 – 7:30 PM on Wednesdays.

Middle School Confirmation        6 – 7:30 PM Wednesdays (add link to milestones page)

Senior High Youth Group              7 – 8:30 PM Wednesdays

Wednesday Nights means youth group – most nights 6:00 for Middle School, 7:00 for
High School, and sometimes the groups will meet together. These gatherings will be a
mix of discussion nights, game nights, and mission experiences on a rotating basis.

Sunday Nights with Marty & Friends – Time on this is TBD but it is an opportunity to
gather on Sunday to talk about the intersection between faith and life. In October we will
be joining in on Walk Humbly: A Journey Toward Racial Reconciliation with our very own
small group discussion.

If you haven’t had a chance to do so yet, join the First Presbyterian Church of Cedar
Rapids Parents Page on Facebook. All Zoom gathering links for youth gatherings will be housed in that private group in addition to being sent out via text.
Children and youth information has now also been consolidated into the weekly church
news email so there is one place to check for information and reminders. If you have any
questions or suggestions as we live into this new way of being together, don’t hesitate to
reach out to Pastor Heather
