Youth Sunday School meets every Sunday at 9:45 (unless there is 1 worship service at 10:00) in Room D with Emily Sweetland teaching. Youth are studying Connect, a journey through the Old and New Testaments that helps youth connect the dots in scripture into a narrative of salvation history. Every Connect lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, youth focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a short witty (and sarcastically hilarious) video, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that help the ideas form connections.
Middle School Youth Group (MSY) meets on Sunday evenings at 6:00 in Room D. We are studying the Reformed Tradition using Sparkhouse’s Re:Formcurriculum, and (lest you think that sounds like a snooze-fest) there will be a snarky appearance by Will Ferrell and a toilet-papering project that would make your mother faint! Re:form engages the brain and the body with exciting and captivating activities. The curriculum empowers youth to truly explore their faith from many different angles and raise questions (that may not have one right answer!)
MSY will be attending Middle School Montreat July 19-23 and the Middle School Fall Retreat at John Knox Center October 6-8, 2017.

High School Youth Group
The High School Youth Group meets every Wednesday at 6:30 for Bible Study and fellowship. Throughout the year we participate in mission projects (including a summer mission trip!), fellowship events, and fund-raisers for summer programs. We also attend the PCUSA Montreat Youth Conferences every summer at Montreat College in North Carolina. Each spring we have a Youth Sunday in which the youth are encouraged to share their faith stories with the congregation in addition to planning and leading the 11:00 worship service.
