When We Meet

Once a month, our youth will have a fellowship or community missional activity like ice skating, bowling, or feeding the homeless, yard work/housework for some of our less-abled members. 

Sunday Morning

Every Sunday during worship in the Youth Room

Our Presbyterian church boasts a dynamic youth ministry, passionately committed to guiding the younger generation on their spiritual journey. Every Sunday morning, our discipleship lessons come alive, seamlessly merging traditional Presbyterian teachings with modern insights that captivate today’s youth.

Through lively discussions and hands-on activities, we aim to equip our youth with a robust foundation of belief, preparing them to be active and compassionate members of both the church and the wider community.
