Youth Programs

The fundamental goal of Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Dutch Neck is to bring our students into an intimate relationship with God.

We pray that students will come to know the passionate love of Christ and will desire to follow Christ’s example of service and ministry. We believe it is our call to equip teens to share this unique love with all of God’s people. We desire to prepare our students to be faithful and devoted followers of Christ, leaders of the Church, and advocates of justice and peace in our society and world. We aim to develop mature disciples of Christ who hunger for the Word of God and who share this Good News not only by their mouths but by their lifestyles, their thoughts, and their faithfulness, so that all whom they encounter may see and know Christ through them.

2018 – 2019 Confirmation Class

Our Confirmation Class for the 2018-2019 school year started in September under the direction of Melissa Haupt. If you are (or a member of your family is) interested in being part of this, please let us know. You can do this by sending an email to the office, at We’ll have a great class this year, and we’re hoping you’ll join us!

In early December the confirmation class volunteered at La Convivenza’s Holiday Day of Service, in which members of many faiths came to the Dutch Neck fellowship hall to ice cookies, write greeting cards, assemble hygiene kits, and enjoy fellowship with members of our diverse community.

We invite youth to join church-wide events. For example, come caroling on December 23 at 4:00, join the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 21, 2019) potluck supper that ends in assembling Presbyterian Disaster assistance kits, or work in the church’s vegetable garden to raise food for hungry Mercer County residents.
