We exist to reach students with the gospel, grow disciples, and send them out to make disciples. 

The First ARP Youth Group exists to provide opportunities for middle school and high school students from the church and from the community.   We seek to develop and nurture a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through evangelism, fellowship, ministry, and discipleship for the glory of God.

opportunities for students . . . 


Join us on the 2nd floor of Robinson Hall from 10:00-10:45 on Sunday mornings. We'll be studying the Bible and how to apply it to our own lives. The Sunday School class is for middle school and high school students. We are currently working through the study "Growing in Christ's Church", part of the "So What?" curriculum series. 


Youth group gathers on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:30 in the gym for food, games, fellowship, and worship. Small groups follow the lesson for a more in depth conversation. Wednesday nights (September-May) are a Q&A time for students to ask any questions they may have about life and Scripture. 

Retreats and Conferences 

Get Connected. 

Bonclarken...a home away from home... Nothing is more beautiful than spending time in the great mountains of Hendersonville, NC with a bunch of friends and learning from God's Word. Both middle school and high school students get the Bonclarken experience each Spring and Fall, and have the opportunity to spend a whole week in the summer. Quest, for middle school students is the 3rd full week of June, followed by  Horizon (for high school students) during the 4th full week of June.

Misson Trips
