Youth & Young Adult Programs

Youth & Young Adults

Our church has an active Youth Ministry. The program encompasses BIble Study, participating in worship services, community service and FUN! Any child in 7th - 12 grade is welcome to join this group. The young adult ministry is for those who are between the ages of 18 (have graduated high school) and 27 years old. Our events and small groups are designed to help you gather with other young adults in community to learn about God, serve your neighbors and grow as followers of Christ.

Scholarships for FUMCOR Youth/Young Adults are available.  Please email your request for an application to cec@firstchurchriverside.org.  You will need to indicate if this is your first time applying or if you are a returning student, as there are different applications for each one.

Beginning Bells

The youth of the church also ring bells. The Beginning Bells group is for children in 7th through 12th grades. Beginning Bells meet most Sundays from 8:45 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.

These youth typically play contemporary/praise songs and get to wear black gloves. They learn about the instrument as well as about reading music. Other performance options that they have experienced are as follows:

  • Processional: Ringing while walking down the center aisle.

  • Ring-a-story: Inter-weaving ringing short songs with a narrative to tell a Bible story.

  • Playing with the Adults: Playing with the Allegro Ringers on the finale of the annual concert.

Contact the Bell Director or the church office for schedule to participate in this program.
