We gather on Sunday evening for Youth Fellowship. During the school year, our 6th-12th graders meet in the Youth Center from 6:00 – 7:30 pm on Sunday evening for our time of Youth Fellowship. Our evening together includes dinner, provided by the families of our youth, and a time of nurturing conversation, education and service, and games – building even stronger relationships with God and with their fellow church members. We laugh a lot and learn even more. We hope your youth can join us some evening!
We offer youth leadership opportunities in church life. In addition to our weekly involvement in our worship service as acolytes, crucifers, ushers, and readers of scripture, there are special occasions of participation such as Youth Sunday, our entirely youth-led worship service, and the Vespers Service at our congregation-wide retreat in Montreat. We encourage our youth to attend the summer Montreat and Massanetta Youth Conferences, expanding their circles with Presbyterians from across the country, having fun while building relationships and growing their faith.
We engage in mission and outreach. During our program year we serve and learn in outreach programs including: Sandwiches for Urban Ministry, Room in the Inn, the Summer Mission Trip, and Souper Bowl of Caring. Our annual Silent Auction and Celebration of Mission BBQ lunch help to fund our mission travels.
Adult Advisors – We are fortunate to have a dedicated and energetic group of volunteer youth advisors who work closely with our pastoral staff and Youth Ministry Team. We are always looking to expand our advisor team. We hope you’ll consider spending some time with our amazing youth!
