Youth

The youth ministry at Westminster Presbyterian Church accepts youth where they are, walks with them in Christian faith and empowers them to share God’s love for the world.

Accept – We accept each other unconditionally.
Walk – We walk alongside each other in our faith journeys.
Empower – We empower each other to love and serve in the world.

We are a group of middle and highs schoolers (and young-hearted adults) who like to laugh, play, learn, pray and serve together as part of a vibrant and supportive church community.

We come together because God has passion for us. God gave us everything in Jesus Christ, who loved his people – and loves us — so much, he endured and overcame death on a cross. Nothing can separate us from that love: not endless waves of homework and tests, not schedules filled with practices and events, not the college admissions process or low self-esteem or bad choices or broken relationships. Nothing! That’s good news. And with the Spirit’s help, our youth ministry is about sharing it. We would love for you to join us.
