The children and youth of First Congregational of Oconomowoc make up a vital and cherished part of our faith family. Our spiritually meaningful programs provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children and youth to explore and grow in their faith and love of God.
Youth Fellowship Groups
Planned social activities and mission opportunities to serve others offer the younger members of our congregation ways to look beyond themselves as they discover first-hand, the joy of being active and vibrant members in their church and community. Our Youth Groups are led by trained adult members of our congregation and include: Junior Youth for 3rd-5th grades, Middle School Youth for 6th-8th grades and High School Youth for 9th-12th grades.

From an early age, our children and youth are given opportunities to help others through mission projects that take place in our church and around our community. Regular mission trips to places across our nation, as well as around the world provide life-changing experiences for our youth and the adults that accompany them as they share their faith through service to others. From sorting canned goods at our local food pantry to serving dinner at a homeless shelter in Chicago to building homes in Honduras, our mission projects allow us to share in the gifts that God has given us.
First Congregational of Oconomowoc offers people of all ages opportunities to explore their faith in God through music - Make a Joyful Noise!
Opportunities to share in the joy of our musical ministry include Praise Team, Children's Handbell Choir, Intergenerational Handbell Choir, Praise Kids Choir, the annual Christmas Pageant and more.
Spiritual retreats at Pilgrim Center, located on the tranquil shore of Green Lake in central Wisconsin offer opportunities for our youth to grow in fellowship while exploring and deepening their faith. The outdoor sanctuary provides ministry in nature throughout the year, and includes summer camps, family camps, retreats for confirmation students and more.
"I started getting involved in church when my children started Sunday School. Both of my children were very active in youth activities.Then, when I retired from teaching, I needed more things to do, and becoming more involved in church was the perfect fit."
