Youth (6th – 12th grade)

Our youth engage in service to our church family, mission and local outreach, and take active roles in worship services. There is a place for everyone at NDPC – we hope you will join us!

From September – May, the Sunday school hour falls between the early worship service (8:30 a.m.) and the 11:00 a.m. worship service.

Need to submit a payment for a retreat or a field trip or want to offer extra support to the youth program as a friend of the church and it’s youth, you can do so easily through PayPal below:

Mission, Service, and Outreach

Mission, Service, and Outreach

Mission trips and service learning are powerful opportunities to witness to and be a witness of God’s love in our world. We serve our local church community as well as those who are beyond our walls.

Each summer, the Senior High youth travel together for a week of mission, alternating among rural, urban and international experiences. Past trips have taken us to Miami, Guatemala and the Appalachian mountains of Tennessee.

One week each Summer
