Parent FAQs

FPC’s Youth Ministry relies heavily on email to communicate weekly events. Letters, calendars, and other information is also mailed to homes. To be added to our email and mailing lists, please click here.

To update your student’s information and/or to add them to our text list, please email Wendy Kennedy.

Middle School meets every Sunday from 5–7 PM in the Youth House for a meal, fellowship, and small group discussion.

Divided by grade and gender, High School meets weekly on Wednesday nights to share a meal and study God’s word. Small groups meet in various homes throughout the city, so please contact Wendy Kennedy for specific information.

Both Middle and High School students take multiple summer trips each year. We also have a Spring and Fall retreat. These are great opportunities to hang with others and grow closer to God. 

Helpful Resources

Axis offers many Parenting resources from “Conversation Starter Kits” to “The Culture Translator,” a weekly newsletter that helps parents stay up to date on ever-changing teen trends. Their list of topics is extensive: social media, smartphone usage, gender identity, pornography, anxiety, depression, suicide, and more.

Has your child experienced trauma and grief?  The Child Mind Institute is an excellent first step for parents who need to help children cope with traumatic grief.

Fuller Youth Institute offers similar resources, such as helping your children process tragedy, helping your children develop faith that stays with them through college and beyond (Sticky Faith), and much more.

Need Assistance?

Sometimes life throws us a curveball and we need a little extra guidance.  This can be especially true during the “teen parenting” phase of life.  If you are in need of a licensed counselor or another professional resource, or if you just need a listening ear or a praying friend, please contact Jon Crantz.  We hope it goes without saying that all inquiries are treated with confidentiality.  We want to help where we can!
