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.

Family Retreat
May 9-10, 2020

New this year! Westminster’s family retreat has been expanded to include youth families.

Does your child ever ask you a question that really puts you on the spot? Ever find any excuse to end a conversation because there’s no easy answer? Jen Cort, educator, clinical social worker and consultant on inclusion and diversity, will lead us in exploring techniques and tips for having tough conversations with your children.

Have fun, meet other middle schoolers from all over the Southeast and learn about scripture. This is our third year going, and it is one of the best things out there our denomination has in youth ministry! Massanetta is Tuesday afternoon through Friday morning, and then we will head to DC for a weekend of service with The Pilgrimage DC, an organization based out of The Church of the Pilgrims Presbyterian Church.
