At Fox Valley Presbyterian Church we have two youth groups. Fisher Folk is for middle school youth (grades 6-8). Our high school youth group (grades 9-12) is called the Fellowship of the Carpenter, or FOTC. Both groups take part in three different types of activities.
Fellowship activities where we experience God’s love for us as we have fun hanging out with each other.
Lessons where we grow in our faith and community as we consider different topics in small groups.
Service projects where we are putting our faith into action as we serve others in Christ.
Our goal is that everyone would experience God’s love, grow in their faith and learn how to serve others.
