“The mission of the youth ministry at PCC is to nurture and develop our youth as maturing disciples of Jesus by providing time and space to encourage teens to question, explore, and grow in faith. We will do this by providing an environment and various opportunities that are experiential, contemplative, and relational.”
6th-12th grade students are invited to join us in a space where we explore faith and God, the meaning of our lives, and how to live as followers of Christ. We strive to nurture an inclusive, open-minded, and diverse community together which includes youth who may or may not have a connection to PCC and who may or may not have a church background. We gather together weekly (in person and on Zoom) to:
- Study the Bible
- Discuss faith, current events, and discipleship
- Practice prayer and spiritual disciplines
- Serve the church and community
- Relationship building
