2019 Youth Retreat

The Greater Decatur Youth have been invited to attend Winter Retreat '19 at Camp Baldwin located on Wolf Bay on the Alabama Gulf Coast, January 18-20 (MLK Day Weekend)! This will be a great opportunity for our youth to get away from Atlanta and join other youth traveling from other cities in drawing closer to each other and to God. The speaker this year is Rev. Jeremy Steele from Christ United Methodist Church in Mobile, AL. There will be an incredible worship band, engaging small group sessions and awesome games and free time! This retreat is for all students 6th-12th grade--the cost is $140 per youth. Space is LIMITED, so register TODAY!

Decatur First Youth Ministry

If you are a sixth- twelfth grade student and are looking for fun, friends, and fellowship--then you have found the right place! At Decatur First, we have an amazing Youth Ministry with tons of activities for all types of teenagers. Our mission is to be a home for all youth to explore, grow and live their faith in Jesus Christ. If you’d like to join us & get informed about our youth ministry, please contact Taylor Kaiser, Youth Director or connect with us on InstaGram. We are here for you.

Sunday Mornings

During the school year, our sixth – twelfth grade students are invited to come at 9:45am for our Youth Café time. Currently, all youth meet together for a short message and then divide out by middle and high school for discussion groups. During the summer months, our program location changes as we join the children’s ministry in their summer curriculum. 

Sunday Evenings

During the school year, 6th–12th grade students are invited to join for youth choir at 5pm followed by our youth program from 6-8pm. Program includes dinner, fellowship, games and worship!

MISSION projects & TRIPs

During the summer, our youth have the opportunity to participate in mission trips. These trips allow our youth to help others and gain valuable life experiences. For more information email: tkaiser@decaturfirst.org


Confirmation is offered for our 8th graders and any older youth who have missed out on confirmation previously and want to be confirmed.
