Welcome to Youth Group!

Youth ministry seeks to help youth connect with their peers, the congregation, and communities both near and far in a safe, fun, and caring environment. Here at Glendale First, we believe that community is important especially for teens who are discovering their identities and forming their faith. 

We meet weekly for fellowship, fun, and food. We enjoy activities such as bowling, overnight events, and outings.

We travel every summer to serve in Sierra Service Project (SSP).
