Youth

The purpose of the Northminster Youth Ministry is to call young people (Middle School and High School) into the presence and ministry of Christ, to nurture them in their faith, and to faithfully care for their souls.  We accomplish this through:

WORSHIP — Honoring and praising God sincerely
DISCIPLESHIP — Growing and understanding God more deeply
FELLOWSHIP — Connecting and growing with others honestly
MINISTRY — Discovering and utilizing our gifts faithfully
OUTREACH — Sharing our experience with God truthfully

Regular programs include:

Want a place to gather with your friends… a place to have fun and talk… a place where everyone is accepted and everyone knows your name… a place that is safe?  This is the place!  Sunday Evening Youth Groups!  It’s a great place to be and make new friends!

Both our Middle School and High School youth groups meet at the same time on Sunday evenings from 6:00-6:30 for dinner and 6:30-8:15 for the Youth Program.  Come and see what God can do to transform you from the inside out.  We’ll play together, sing together, worship together, and talk together about how God wants to Renew, Restore and Revive us.  Come join us!

Youth Choir (6th – 12th Grade) meets from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays in the Sanctuary choir loft with director Charlie Boone. They work on vocal techniques, score reading, and singing in parts. The Youth Choir is one of the highlights of the Music Program at Northminster.  To find out more, contact Charlie Boone, Director of Music.
Youth Sunday School has two classes: Middle School (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) and High School (9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders). Middle School now uses “Connect,” which is a Bible-centered curriculum tailored for tweens and early teens. High School now uses “Feasting on the Word,” which invites teens to participate in the Lectionary passages for each Sunday through group discussion, videos, and games.

Every year, we organize Youth Conference and Mission trips for youth in Middle and High School. In the past, we have served God’s people in places like New Orleans, LA; Asheville Youth Mission in NC; Charlotte, NC, to do inner city mission ministry there; and to Honduras on an international mission trip. In 2018, members of the youth group will travel to Puerto Rico with a mission team from NPC!

Finally, we will attend Youth conferences at Montreat Conference Center in NC for High School Youth and at Maryville College in TN for Middle School Youth.

These events, along with all of the programs we offer the Youth of our congregation, bond our kids to their church, to the idea of service to God and community, and to each other.
