First Glance is a student center for junior and senior high school students in Kenmore . It primarily operates as a youth center with basketball, skateboarding, internet, video games, food and more, providing the students a place to go.  It keeps these students off the street. In addition we have a teen moms program, an abstinence program, skate night and more.  This facility enables us to meet and build relationships with students who may not normally come to a church.  Through these relationships, we have the opportunity to tell students about Christ and get them involved in a local church.In addition we teach students life skills.  We work with the community and have the students volunteer.  Also through other special events we teach students about money management, the importance of education, and serving. Mission Statement: We exist to connect students and their communities to Christ and the Church through real, loving and non-threatening avenues.

Reviews for First Glance Student Center, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

We started volunteering with the Young Adults at First Glance when our daughter invited us to an evening meeting. That was over 3 years ago and we are still active in this ministry. We have met some wonderful people and have been challenged to live our faith more completely. I challenge everyone to volunteer just one time to see how First Glance is transforming the Kenmore community.
