Teens are, like everyone else, welcome to come to the Worship service. We encourage teens to become actively involved in the life of the church. Some options:
- be a reader
- be an usher
- help out at Sunday school
- sing in the choir
- help out in the nursery
- help video tape events
Community Service Youth Groups
High School and Middle School Teens from First Church have formed two Community Service Groups. Many of our teens bring their friends to participate in this group, all are welcome! The current schedules are posted on the Middle School Group and Teen Group pages. For information on the next meeting contact Beth Davis, or call 413-458-4273, or e-mail the church office. Hope you will be able to join us!
Confirmation is an important step in a young adult’s life. At First Church we gather young people who are ready from time to time for this special membership class. Each confirmand is matched with a mentor, someone active in the life of the church. In addition to their confirmation classes the youth meet with this mentor regularly on something that the two of them can share.
Habitat for Humanity
In the recent past we have had an active Habitat Group involving teens from our church and also the wider community, but this group is temporarily inactive. Teens interested in this form of community service currently participate individually in the local Habitat group or through programs at other churches. If you are a teen or adult volunteer interested in helping reactivate this group, let us know! Call or e-mail the church office or Beth Davis to express your interest in this activity.
Although not a church organization as such, First Church is the center for JavaJive, a teen run organization that puts on coffee houses and dances. The group owns sound and light equipment which is stored at First Church and events are sometimes held here. Teens with an interest in performing or getting involved with the sound and light “tech crew” should contact Sky Jones at 413-884-5424.
