S.M.Y.L.E. YOUTH CLASS
The S.M.Y.L.E Youth Class stands for "Sunday Morning Youth Lite Engagement". It is open to all youth (6th-12th grade). It is held in Room 219 (upstairs Education Wing) and light refreshments are served. We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45.
On Wednesday mornings during the school year, the youth meet in the fellowship hall for Prayer Breakfast from 7:00-7:35 am. The youth eat breakfast together and share in a devotional before starting their school day.
Youth Fellowship is every Sunday night from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Fish House, located at 610 Prestwood Drive . Dinner is served at 5:00 then they separate into middle and high school groups for weekly lessons and group building activities. They also plan and lead "5th Sunday Vespers" which is held at the Fish House and open to the congregation.
MOntreat Youth CONFERENCE
The Youth also participate in the Montreat Youth Conference every summer. This is held during the last week in July and is open to all youth who have completed 8th-12th grade. Fundraisers are held throughout the year to help offset the registration cost. For more information on Montreat, please visit their website at montreat.org.
Youth Sunday is a very special time in our church. The youth plan and lead an entire worship service. They choose the theme, scripture, liturgy and music. This year's Youth Sunday is on March 3, 2019!
There is a confirmation class offered to youth at least every other year. The pastor leads the classes, which prepare young people to make a public affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. The days and times of the classes are set each time the Confirmation Class is offered.
Youth Summer Programs
Youth have an opportunity to participate in the Youth Service Camp during the week of Vacation Bible School. After helping with VBS each morning, they break for lunch (provided by the church) then take the bus to an offsite location for an afternoon service project Monday-Thursday. On Friday, they have a fun afternoon at a pool.
Youth also serve in the Soup Kitchen during the summer, once in June & once in July.
