1 Peter 3:15—“Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear”.


The teenage years can be a challenging time spiritually for many young people, and so the FPCL Youth Ministry strives to offer a safe space where teens can ask questions, grow in their faith, and enjoy fellowship with one another! “First Impressions” is our monthly youth group gathering, and includes food, games, a devotional and prayer time. Throughout the year we also offer a variety of special outreach events. Some recent ones have included going bowling, playing laser tag, enjoying a church lock-in, visiting the Reinke Brothers Haunted Mansion, challenging an Escape Room, and a Christmas party! Another special time in the life of our Youth Group is Confirmation—when a group of young people takes an extended period of time to explore, articulate, and confirm their Christian belief before formally joining the church. Each confirmand has a mentor who works closely with them, and then they also attend group classes together. Confirmation classes are offered at periodic intervals, based on the interest level and availability of participants. Our most recent group of confirmands completed their training and joined the church back in the spring of 2023.
