Youth Groups
The youth groups are an important part of the life of First Christian Church of North Hollywood. Our goal is to provide a place for young people to come and feel accepted for who they are as children of God. In addition to regular meetings, the Youth attend camps together and serve the community through various mission activities. They also participate in the life of the greater church, serving as deacons and even leading us in worship on Youth Sundays. They raise funds for outreach activities and host social events as well.
