Grades 6-12

Where you can learn about Jesus, meet new friends and be yourself... 


Grades 6–12

We meet every week, either in smaller groups within our own age-groups or in larger gatherings, outings and fun events. We learn about God and ourselves as we try to find out what it means to become disciples of Jesus Christ. For more information, contact Kenton Hundley, Director of Discipleship for Children and Youth

Become an Acolyte

Grades 5 - 12

Acolytes assist in sanctuary worship services year-round. They lead the choir processional, light the altar candles, receive the offering, assist in baptisms, extinguish the altar candles, and assist at special services wherever needed. Acolytes learn leadership and cooperation skills as well as symbolism in our worship services.

Candidates grades 5 through 12 are welcome. A new acolyte schedule begins in September of each year. For further information, please contact Demmie Divine, Acolyte Coordinator 619-297-4366 ext. 138


Food Ministry

"Each time I am able to serve others to make the lives of our brothers and sisters who have less than I do, I know I am living out God's call." On the 5th Sunday of the month, our Students 1st group is in charge of the food distribution for First Church Food Ministry. Join us at 2 PM outside of Linder Hall to help load up the vehicles. We'll then drive over to Wesley UMC to set up and distribute the food collected and purchased by First Church. We usually are finished by 4 PM. Come join us in serving the community and sharing God's love.



An opportunity for 9th-grade students to discover what it means to be a follower of Christ.

Our next confirmation class is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019. More information coming soon.
