Fall 2021: Currently, youth are meeting in-person for safe, masked, socially-distanced events.
Sunday Mornings, Sept. – May (9:45 – 10:45am)
High School (grades 9-12) youth are invited to attend Adult Education Classes on Sundays OR volunteer to assist with children’s Sunday School.
Middle School (grades 6-8) youth meet in their own class.
Sunday Evenings, Sept. – May (6:30 – 7:30pm)
High school and middle school youth groups meet in the evening for fellowship and fun. Our youth groups represent many different schools in our area. All young people, regardless of church affiliation or background, are welcome to participate as we grow in faith, and learn more about ourselves and our place in the world.
Confirmation is an opportunity for middle school youth to deeply explore their maturing faith in a supportive environment. NDPC offers confirmation classes for 7th and 8th graders every other year in the fall. This class is designed for youth at all places on the continuum of faith and doubt. Students work on a statement of faith that honestly reflects their beliefs and their ongoing questions.
Our Whole Lives
Our Whole Lives is a faith and sexuality education program that we offer to 7th – 9th graders. OWL fosters informed, responsible, and values-based decisions about sexual health and behavior. Youth work with trained volunteers as they learn to integrate faith and sexuality.
Montreat Trips and Mission Opportunities
Every summer, NDPC’s high school youth attend the Montreat Youth Conference in North Carolina. Throughout the year, middle and high school youth are offered mission and service opportunities with NDPC mission partners.
