Our youth program here at First Presbyterian Monroe, Ignite, centers itself on the principals laid out in Romans 12:11-13 which says, “Never let the fire in your heart go out. Keep it alive. Serve the Lord. When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God's people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes.” 

We seek to help the youth of Monroe to continue on in their journey with God and to encourage and edify them along the way with biweekly meetings for a small group devotional and fellowship time at SCOOPS located in downtown Monroe. As maturing and growing Christians, we also encourage our students to share their light to their community. We hope not only to serve the youth but to prompt the youth to serve the community around them.
