The Student Ministry of First Christian Church 

We call ourselves the "Saltshakers".

Our purpose is to point students to God, and lead them into a Changing Relationship with God and with others around them. Our Youth Group name, The Saltshakers, comes form Matthew 5:13 where Jesus is talking to his disciples and he says, "you are the salt of the earth." Here at Saltshaker Youth Ministries, we want to use every opportunity to be salt to the world around us.

If you are in grades 7 through 12, come and join us as we fellowship and grow in our relationship with Jesus.
