Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Owensboro can most easily be described as love. We do not just know that we are to love the Lord are God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength but we believe it and build our ministry around it. A Youth Ministry cannot love God without learning about God first. Lucky for us, we have the Bible to help us learn of his works and love for us. Couple the Bible with our personal experiences and interactions with others and we are able to enter into discussions about our beliefs and what we believe about God. Discussions are an important part of our Youth Ministry. We understand that our Youth Room is a safe environment where everyone can share their thoughts without rebuke or repercussion. We want Youth to know they are accepted for who they are and that they are welcome to share all of their experiences, both good and bad so we can share in those experiences with them. Trust is the first step toward building a strong community of Youth.
We believe in building a strong community of Youth because in order to love God with all of our being, we must learn to love each other as ourselves. We are able to love one another better through sharing our experiences with one another, understanding what our group members are going through, and being there for them through the good and the bad. We grow together in community by living life together. Whether it is attending Youth Group or lock-Ins, going to the park, or to conferences, or mission trips, we do all these things together to continue to build our community with God present. Where 2 or 3 are gathered, there God is as well.
We invite all youth of every shape and size to come join us as we grow together learning about how God is always present in our mist.
