Youth Ministry

Connecting in Christian community helps youth develop a peer-base outside of their schools: a place based on the principle of inclusion. We offer a place to find acceptance and share the boundary-breaking love of God.

Our Covenant Youth Community

Fosters connection to significant (non-parental) adults in the faith community.
Supports exploration in questions of faith, life, and what it means to be a follower of Christ in a safe, non-judgmental context.
Offers opportunities to put faith in action.
The relationships made during these formative years can have an impact for a lifetime.

  • Sunday morning Sunday School classes on Zoom  (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) for Middle High & Senior High youth

Sunday School Classes

Youth gather on Sundays at 11:00 AM on Zoom for both Middle & Senior High classes. Every two years, the Middle High students experience Confirmation class grades 7 and 8. Classes run September-May.

CovYoGro

Our beloved name for the youth group, meets on most Sunday evenings from 4:00-5:30PM. During this time, youth and advisors have fellowship and fun together and delve into deeper discussions about life and faith. For more details check the church calendar.

We have several opportunities throughout the year for youth to attend Presbytery of the Peaks retreats and go to conferences. We take trips annually to Massanetta Middle School Conference for middle school students and Montreat Youth Conference for high school students.
