YOUTH

The youth of FPC Moultrie are dedicated to learning, serving, and growing, together in Christ. 

 

They meet weekly during the school year on Sunday evenings from 5-7pm for fellowship opportunities

such as class dinners, bowling, and game nights with our Cornerstones; and for service opportunities

such as visiting local nursing homes, sorting food at the food bank, volunteering with Crossroads Rescue Mission, 

and participating in the Presbytery-sponsored "Rise Against Hunger" food program. 


During the summers, FPC youth participate in mission trips, most recently

to places like Asheville and Charlotte, NC, and enjoy attending the Montreat Youth Conference and

presbytery summer camp at Dogwood Acres to further develop their faith.
