Annual Events

We have multiple opportunities throughout the year to worship, celebrate and have a little fun!  Join us for one of these wonderful ministries for children, youth & families!

Pajama Party
The last Sunday of the year or the first Sunday of the New Year we celebrate with a Pajama Party! Come in your comfy and warm PJs and have some fun. We will have a craft, activity & a breakfast treat for everyone! Teachers- wear your pajamas too!

Pancake Breakfast
Our 4th/5th graders and parents put on an all church breakfast to raise funds for Kids Against Hunger. The 4th/5th graders then go and package these meals to feed hungry kids around the world.

Ski Trip
Each year over a school holiday in January or February we take a Family & Youth ski trip to Mt Crescent. It is open to the whole family! Any youth in 6th-12th grade are welcome to go without a parent, any younger kids must be accompanied by an adult.

Trivia Night (Jan & Sept)
Our CYFM Board puts on this fun night for the whole church. Trivia, teams of friends, food, drinks and more! You won’t want to miss this great community event that helps support missions.

Ash Wednesday
Our kids choirs, confirmation students & other youth help our pastors make this a special service to begin our Lenten journey. We do not have regular WNL classes on this night, but we do invite your family to come for dinner and worship.

FP Family Easter Fair
Our Easter Fair is a fun evening for the whole family. We provide dinner & dessert; plus there are several art and craft projects for kids to help them learn more about Lent & Easter. We usually have a family craft as well so the whole family can get creative together.

Family Easter Services
First-Plymouth has many ways to worship as a family on Easter morning. One opportunity for our families with young kids is to be part of an interactive, multi-media service that gets the kids involved. Join us at 9:30am or 11am on Easter Sunday in Mayflower Hall for this very special worship service.

HSYG Spring Retreat
Sometimes high school youth just need a break! So, why not join us for a weekend getaway. We do a 3-year rotation between going to Carol Joy Holling, Timberlake Ranch & World of Fun in KC. Watch for more information each March!

WNL Wind-Up Talent Show
After a great year of learning, singing and gathering on Wednesday evenings we like to provide a special dinner put on by our CYF Board and our MSYG & HSYG. Plus all our kids show off their incredible talents at our Annual Talent Show!

Vacation Bible School
What could be more fun than a week at church? Kids 4 years old through 5th grade enjoy getting messy, learning about important faith lessons, singing (with a live band), creating and so much more! Plus we have an end of the week celebration dinner & program as well as a pool party on Sat to wrap up the week. You won’t want to miss out on this one of a kind week! Adults & youth are invited to volunteer as well!

MSYG Fall Retreat
We invite all our middle school youth to get away for a quick weekend of games, challenges, ropes course and of course a lot of fun!

Halloween Block Party
Each October we invite our families and the neighborhood to come have some spooky fun, enjoy a variety of activities, collect as much candy as you can and of course enjoy getting to be a community. We also serve hot dogs & cotton candy! This is a free event for all!

One of the biggest ministries we put on each year is a musical dinner theatre. It is a great way for our kids to explore their gifts of music and acting and share them with the community. It is also a fundraiser to help support our youth mission trips. Middle & High school youth are invited to be involved by being part of the cast, crew or by serving the dinner. Watch each fall for tickets to go on sale- it has sold out each year so get your tickets early.

Christmas Fair
Our Christmas Fair is a fun evening for the whole family. We provide dinner & dessert; plus there are several art and craft projects for kids to help them get in the Christmas spirit.
