Youth Ministry

Rev. Amanda Golbek

Minister of Children and Youth

FPCE Youth Ministry serves our middle school and high school students.

High School youth meet Sunday afternoons, while the middle schoolers have their own group on Friday evenings. Both have their own special spaces in our building… and their own unique ways of discovering the incredible love God has for them!

We believe the church is at its best when it is participating in the world around it.

We seek to reflect the love of Jesus Christ through our programming, our service and our commitment to His purposes. As the hands and feet of Christ, we work to provide basic care, discipleship and prayer to those nearby and far away.
