Youth Programs at MPC
Sunday Schedule: Our youth class (grades 5-12) meets weekly (except on communion Sundays) during the 10:30 am worship hour, throughout the school year. The class is taught by our Associate Pastor for Youth, Rev. Justin Beatty. On communion Sundays when the youth class does not meet, middle schoolers and high schoolers remain with the adult congregation in worship, often taking on leadership roles (e.g. serving as ushers and worship leaders, serving communion.)
Confirmation Class: Every few years we offer a Confirmation class for our high school youth. While teens may have grown up attending church with their parents, the Confirmation process allows them to make their own decisions about living as disciples of Jesus and becoming actively involved in the life of a local church. In addition to attending classes with the pastor, confirmands are paired with adult mentors from the congregation who offer friendship and support.
Special Events: Periodically we schedule fun fellowship events, and offer opportunities to attend church camps and retreats. Talk to Justin or use the contact form below if you are interested in being added to our email list for notices of upcoming youth events!
