Youth Ministry

MPC considers ministry to youth and their families to be one of the greatest ministries it can provide. Youth ministry at MPC has long been a place that welcomes teenagers to embrace their questions and struggles with faith in a healthy environment. Youth leaders use a mixture of games, lessons, fellowship and fun so that every youth feels comfortable and encouraged to examine their journey of faith. It is our desire to meet teens where they are so we can better understand their needs and wishes.

If you have a game or a recital... - Let John know! These events are great to hang out at. In the past, when one youth group member has a game we often grab a few other youth and surprise show up to give some support (sometimes that means as a really loud unofficial cheer squad).  Let's support each other as much as we can!

    Confirmation Class for 9th graders begins on September 7 at 11:00 a.m. in the Youth Room.

    Confirmation is not a full-year curriculum like the MS or HS classes, but is instead geared toward igniting a passion for learning and questioning the faith.  Once the class is finished, we provide youth with the opportunity to join MPC as a full-fledged, voting member of the church community who is then eligible to be nominated as a Deacon or Elder in the future!

  • Sunday, September 21, 2014 - 6:00pm

    This is a combined event for middle school and high school youth.

    Anyone who wants to be involved in the youth program is also invited - older adults, younger adults...not just parents! You can sign up for specific roles after learning more that night. The evening will begin with a potluck dinner.  Please bring an item according to your last name:

    A-H bring a side dish
    I-Q bring a main dish
    R-Z bring a dessert 

    Adults and youth will separate after dinner for different activities. Come see what's in store for this year, enjoy fellowship and food, and bring a friend!

    Everyone is welcome to these events!  For more information, please contact the Director of Youth Ministries, John Chaffee, at 610-566-3944, ext. 13 or jchaffee@mediapresbyterian.org.
