fuse is our ministry for students in grades 6-12. A fuse creates a link in an electrical circuit – between the source of power and the place power is needed. When needed, the fuse sacrifices itself for the good of the circuit. Our purpose is to equip students to be the fuse: living sacrificial lives & being a bridge between the Source of Power (God) and the place power is needed (the world).

    Sundays, 10:00 AM  |  fusebox — 604 Market St (FEC)

    Students who desire to grow closer to others and God are encouraged to join a life group. Here, we dive deeper into the Bible in community with a fuse Leader to learn more than what we possibly could on our own. Students are invited to meet at 10:00 AM in the fusebox then break into separate groups from there. Leaders will connect with their students on their specific meeting room. Here are our current life groups:

    • Middle School Girls Group: Any girl in 6th – 8th grade is invited to be a part of this group, which is led by Sue Johnson and Missy Lundy.
    • Middle School Boys Group: Any boy in 6th-8th grade is invited to be a part of this group, which is led by Chad Bower, Mike Lundy and Ken Durrwachter.
    • High School Girls Group: Any girl in 9th – 12th grade is invited to be a part of this group, which is led by Payton Robbins and Nicole Bower.
    • High School Boys Group: Any boy in 9th-12th grade is invited to be a part of this group, which is led by Caleb Robbins and Bryce Berresford.

    If you want to learn more or join a life group, reach out to Caroline.

    Upcoming Events


    November 5, 2023 – February 25, 2024

    Confirmation is an exciting opportunity for students to build a foundation for Christian faith, understand the basic beliefs, and explore where they are at in their own faith. By the end of Confirmation, students will become members of First Church and will be able to clearly articulate why they choose to follow Jesus. Any student in grades 6 – 12 who is interested in taking this step in their spiritual walk is invited to join this year’s Confirmation class, which will be a 12-week process on Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 11:00 AM beginning November 5, 2023. Students will be asked to find a mentor to journey alongside them throughout the entirety of the Confirmation course.

    The Confirmation Celebration honoring the graduates will be held during our Sanctuary Worship services on February 25, 2024. In case of snow, the date will be moved to March 3, 2024.

    Registration opens September 26 and will close on October 29.
