“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
Youth ministry at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury celebrates our youth and young people. The hope of our youth ministry programs is to reveal God's love to all who join us, to create a safe and fun community for fellowship, learning, and growth, to equip and challenge our youth to follow Jesus out in the world, and to share God's Word in life-giving and relevant ways.
Youth ministry is not a side program to the church, but at the heart of the church's faithful expression of God's love and care. Likewise, we believe children, teens and young adults are not the future of the church but insist instead that they are a vital part of the church right now.
Youth Group at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury brings young people together for faith, fellowship, food and fun. Whether we're studying the bible, serving the larger community, or running through the church playing games, we're always building relationships, engaging relevant topics, and growing in faith.
We have two youth groups, Middle School and High School. Some special events and activities are combined, but most Sundays we meet separately. Check the church calendar for upcoming youth events.

Youth Group Mission and Service
Our youth express their faith by giving of themselves for the benefit of others through mission and service projects. High school students serve meals at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK). In October, our youth participate in the CROP walk to benefit Church World Service. Our youth also sort food for the Thanksgiving baskets. They also assist with the Annual Strawberry Festival, Vacation Bible School and the Christmas Pageant/Vespers service.
Our middle school youth group goes on a weekend mission trip to New York City in June. Our high school youth group goes on a week long mission trip to Ohio in August, through Next Step Ministries. Email Pastor Hannah if you or your child is interested in going on this year’s summer mission trips.
