The youth of First Presbyterian participate in several trips throughout the year emphasizing spiritual growth, mission and fellowship.
Summer Trip to Boston,
Where: Boston, MA
When: June 17-22, 2018
What: A week long mission trip through the mission organization Youthworks.
Your group will partner with local ministries to work at homeless shelters and serve the children and elderly in the city. From serving guests at the local soup kitchen to playing games with seniors struggling with Alzheimer’s to being present to neighborhood kids, you’ll see the backbone of Lynn is many kind, strong, diverse individuals ready to help you fall in love with the place they call home. In the evenings, explore neighboring Boston, enjoy North Shore beach, continue building relationships by sharing a meal at My Brother’s Table and attend a cookout at a waterfront park in Salem. – from Youthworks.com

Montreat Youth Conference
This conference is designed for rising ninth graders through graduated seniors and takes place in the mountains of North Carolina. It provides an incredible opportunity for our youth to get away and spend a week in worship, study and relationship building all centered around deepening our faith and strengthening the bonds of our group.
Montreat Middle School
This conference provides all the perks of Montreat, but takes place at Maryville College in Tennessee. It is designed for our sixth and seventh graders.
Each year our group selects a mission trip designed for our youth to serve others and gain perspective. Some past trips have included: Washington, D.C., New Orleans and the Appalachia region of Kentucky.
Retreats at Camp Hopewell
Each January and February, our youth participate in a Junior High and a Senior High retreat. These retreats include a keynote speaker, worship, fellowship and the great outdoors!
