High School Youth meets every Sunday at 9:45 in Room 106

This year, the high schoolers are exploring each piece of worship and why it is we do it the way we do as Presbyterians! This will lead into a time of worship planning in preparation for Youth Sunday on June 3, 2018. We begin with a time of fellowship (often with breakfast!) and community building, and end with prayer.

Youth are also invited to participate in various youth specific events, including monthly Popcorn Theology nights, mission days, and more! Questions about how to get involved with the youth program?

Top Goals for the Youth Ministry
The Youth Ministry is one of the vital ministries of a local congregation. One of the most urgent, most helpful tasks for the church is to help answer any questions teens have, help them understand what Christianity is, and be helpful as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood.

At its most recent meeting, the church's Youth Council established four top goals for the overall youth ministry of this congregation:

  1. Build committed relationships among people--of all ages--in the church.

  2. Develop the spiritual lives of young people.

  3. Develop an appreciation for the history of the church and a love for the Bible.

  4. Develop a youth program that is meaningful and significant for everyone who is involved.
