The Gate Student Ministries 

” I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture.” -Jesus (John 10:9)

The Gate meets on Wednesday nights from 6-8pm downstairs in the Fellowship Hall at FFC. Every week includes a free meal, fellowship, worship, a relevant message or small groups, and games. The purpose of this ministry is to be an inclusive and embodied community rooted in Christ where teenagers can engage, learn, and grow. We also offer several events and trips throughout the year including retreats, conferences, and mission trips. If you have any further questions, please talk to our youth pastor, Mike Barnes (mike@salemfirstfriends.org).
