Student Ministry Events


From now until February 2nd, we are asking adults in our church to commit to praying for an individual student involved in youth ministry for a year. This commitment will involve being paired with a student, buying a prayer guide ($6), and praying through the guide for a year. We hope it will also involve occasionally coming down to the youth house (anytime after early service until about 10:05), saying hey to your student, and engaging about things that matter. The goal of the Pray for Me Campaign is to have three adult believers, each from different generations, paired with each student, using the prayer guide as a resource to effectively pray for them throughout the year. It’s in the simple way of faithful, committed prayer that we’d like to connect our church more. Will you please consider making this commitment? If you’d like to, please visit to fill out a very short survey. Or if you have any questions about this, please email me at

The Students & Families Ministry staff looks forward to this time each year as we plan for the annual Senior High Winter Retreat at Alpine Camp for Boys.  We value this time away from the busyness of school and have seen friendships deepen as students learn more about the love of Christ.  Our weekend is full of fellowship, play, and time to rest atop Lookout Mountain.

Our Speaker this year is Martin Antoon, RUF campus Minister at Savannah College of Art and Design.

FPCYM is returning to Seagrove Beach, Florida, for Spring Break 2020! This beloved trip is intentionally structured to promote rest and fellowship as we spend time together sharing meals, enjoying the beach, and learning during the evenings at an Insight-style teaching time. Our prayer is that this trip will continue to be an example of the rich community of FPCYM and that students would be encouraged and strengthened by this time together. 9th through 12th graders are invited to join us for SPRING BREAK AT SEAGROVE, March 10-14, 2020.
