Youth

Here at PCCH we offer an exciting Ministry for youth, which seeks to promote Christian living while having fun in the process!  Our focus is simple: build relationships with and between each other, using the strength of our bonds to give back to the community. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Brian Russo, our Director for Youth Ministries, at [email protected]

Fellowship

  • Middle School Fellowship meets every Sunday evening, from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm in the new youth space in the Strouse Building.
  • High School Fellowship meets every Sunday evening, from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the new youth space in the Strause Building.
  • We eat dinners together, talk about prominent issues, engage in alternative worship and play lots of games.

Service

  • Our youth are devoted to service, both within the local community and the world at large.
  • Youth accompany our Director of Senior Adult Ministries on visitations to the elderly.
  • Youth have volunteered at Habitat for Humanity; NPIHN; Friends of the Wissahickon; Overbrook School for the Blind; Our Brother’s Place; and the AGAPE soup kitchen of Elizabeth, NJ.
  • Every Summer we go on a week-long Mission Trip! In the past we’ve gone to Belize, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Montana. In 2014, the youth will be going to Oregon to work with a group called Love, INC (in the name of Christ), helping needy families in and around the Portland area.
  • Our youth group travels each year for mission work. Watch our mission trip video from our trip in Oregon, available in four parts: Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Part 4.

Confirmation

  • Confirmation typically begins in October and ends in May.
  • We are committed to a progressive form of educational ministry, and encourage our youth to invest in a personal claim over their faith.
  • Youth are taught to reconcile their faith against the challenges of our post-modern, relativistic 21st century, which means we ask the tough questions, of Scripture and of God.
