KGPC Youth learn what it means to be part of a Christian community, and how that applies to each aspect of their lives. Our goal is to help you to
grow and mature
as a follower of Jesus Christ through classes, groups, and travel opportunities.
Our youth group meets every Sunday evening for fellowship, fun, and faith formation.
Middle School youth meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for fellowship hour then have dinner with the High School youth from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m.
High School youth share a meal with the Middle School youth from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. then break out for fellowship from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m..
Cultivate a stronger faith with our enrichment opportunities on Sunday Mornings! Middle and High School Students gather at 9AM in the Youth Rooms to discuss faith and enjoy donuts.
Each summer, we attend Massanetta Middle School Conference (usually in June) and Montreat High School Conference (usually first week of August) to develop our faith and have fun.
Our youth program incorporates instruments, movement, and singing on Wednesday evenings.
Older students are intentionally welcomed to join the last few minutes of younger groups to assist them, review skills, and be ready to move on in their group.
Youth handbell (6th – 12th grade) rehearsals and worship participation occur periodically throughout the church year.
Every third Sunday of the month, we host small groups that can meet on or off site between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. They are led by intentionally developed leaders who engage youth where they are with age-appropriate and stage-specific topics.
These are offered regularly to encourage our youth to grow in their faith and develop Christian leadership skills.
Students 7th grade and above take responsibility for their faith by learning more about the PCUSA theology and spirituality. These youth attend mission projects, classes, interfaith worship services, a retreat, and meet with adult mentors from the congregation for a three month period to prepare them to become members.
