...existing to know Jesus and make Him known...
At Walla Walla Pres, we try to be real, fun, intentional, relevant, and growing. We want everyone who runs into us to feel welcomed and valued... wherever they are in their lives and their walk with the Lord. Sometimes we do that, other times we miss the goal; but that's ok... we aren't expected to be perfect!

Current Sunday Curriculum
Our youth ministry uses The Gospel Project curriculum by Lifeway for Sunday morning lessons. This is a Christ-centered curriculum that focuses on introducing youth to Christ in every lesson. We are currently working our way through the story of God in a chronological manner. If you would like to know more or want to explore other resources from The Gospel Project you can click this link to go directly to their website. Their website also includes training videos for teachers and parents alike on how to better engage students about their faith outside of the Sunday morning setting.Youth Groups

Tuesday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm, Vanessa Curry and Angel Saldana are hosting a girls Bible study where everyone is invited to open up about questions they have, dig deeper in the scripture and find a place to feel welcomed and accepted.
Youth Bible Study (during WFB)

If you are in middle school or are unable to attend the high school groups on Tuesday nights, join us on Wednesdays for WFB (Wednesdays at First & Birch) for dinner at 5:30pm followed by Bible study form 6-7:15pm.
