Additional Activities for Youth:
Youth Church Class runs on Sundays from 9:15 to 10:15 am in Room 305. All youth grades 6-12 are welcome to join us for a time to reflect on your week, navigate Scripture, discuss relevant topics and strengthen friendships.
Youth Fellowship includes on-site activities, off-site mission projects, and social events with each other and with other church youth groups.
Every Sunday from 12:00 to 1:30 pm from fall through spring, the youth gather for recreation, team building activities, and faith formation discussion.
Additionally, Youth Fellowship activities might include off-site mission projects. We've built a stone path at Congressional Cemetery, visited Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary in Poolsville and helped care for the animals, and helped with the National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) Block Party.
We also host regular social events such as bowling, movie nights, pizza parties, and game nights.
For Grades 8 & 9/Not Yet Confirmed Senior High Youth
Youth will explore the Christian faith and what it means to be a Presbyterian. In addition, each youth is paired with a “confirmand partner,” which is an adult member of the congregation who serves as a sounding board for grappling with hard questions. Confirmand partners meet individually with their youth partners at mutually agreed-upon times. They also meet together with the entire class several times during the year. Confirmation classes are offered every other year, and the next class will be in 2017-2018.
