IMG_4965Sunday School

Junior and Senior High Sunday School classes give youth a place to explore their faith and beliefs. Junior high (grades 7 and 8) students learn about the real and unpolished personalities of Old and New Testament characters, and how they’re more like us than they may have known. Senior high students look at their beliefs and faith through events and situations in today’s world. Meeting Sundays, Jr. High: 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.; Sr. High: 11:00 – 12:00  pm.  

Confirmation

Confirmation class is held September through May for students in 9th grade. Confirmation class is a journey for students who are interested in exploring their faith and becoming members of the church. Through small group discussions, retreats, games and reflection, students look at the history of our faith, what it means to be a Presbyterian, what scripture says about living a life of faith, and what other faiths believe. Meeting on Sundays, September-May, 9:30 – 11:00 a.m.

Youth Fellowship

Sunday evenings for youth at MWPC mean dinner and fun. Junior and Senior High youth share dinner, then it’s fun and games, or talks and mission work, or a little of it all!  Add retreats, summer mission trips, and all kinds of activities, and it all adds up to building relationships that matter.
