Youth Programs at First Congregational

This Peace Crane, lovingly constructed by our church youth, containing over 1000 paper cranes, was dedicated by the congregation on January 29th, 2017 in a ceremony led by Pastor Talia. It will be a permanent monument in our church to peace around the world

Our Youth Program, W.I.N.G.S. (Worth, Insight, Nurture, Goals, Spirit) is for our young people in grades 6 – 12.  W.I.N.G.S. meets most Sunday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 pm during the school year, and is led by our Associate Minister and assisted by other adults from our First Congregational family.

Some of the awesome things they do and participate in together include:

    • Annual Super-Sloppy Olympics
    • Photo Scavenger Hunt in downtown Winter Park
    • Pottery in our pottery studio
    • Thai Festival in Kissimmee
    • Second Harvest Food Bank
    • Bowling Night!
    • Puppet Build
    • Feeding Children Everywhere
    • Annual Winter Park Christmas Parade
    • Quidditch Tournament in Blue Jacket Park
    • Outreach and Community Service Projects
    • Lock-Ins, Retreats and Mission Trips – both local and International

We are proud to have one of the most active, dynamic youth groups around … come and join us!
