Sarah Greeno grew up attending First Christian Church (FCC) here in Findlay and has wonderful memories of the time she spent with the youth group. Because of that passion, she had a desire to create that same environment for her own children and other youth in our community. With full support of Dr. Jack Sullivan Jr., senior
pastor, and the church congregation, Greeno restarted the youth ministry program at FCC in October 2017.
“The whole church believes so strongly that youth ministry is where we build leaders for both today’s and tomorrow’s church. We want to impart the values of love, forgiveness, inclusivity, social justice and peacemaking and have our youth embody these values,” explains Sullivan.
Youth Group: something teens can look forward to
On the first and third Sunday of each month from 3-5pm, fifth through 12th grade students enjoy fun activities, games and Bible lessons and they give back to the community, as well.
“We strive to keep the atmosphere light and fun. We want youth group to be something that they look forward to doing. We also want to be sure that everyone is always made to feel welcome and included,” explains Greeno.
The group has distributed handmade ornaments and cards at a local nursing home, held a silent auction and taken a trip to Dietsch’s ice cream (yum!).
The youth group at First Chri stian Church is open to any student in grades 5-12. Parents are welcome to attend and participate as well.
First Christian Church is located at 1624 Tiffin Ave. Suite B in Findlay.
