Our sixth and seventh grade students CONNECT! in Sunday School with this curriculum  of study.

 

SEE… the lesson theme introduced; play a warm up game; watch a quirky video with “just-for-them” humor containing the Bible story and solid theology. EXPLORE… the CONNECT! Bible selected especially for youth to highlight, underline, and sketch in while studying the lesson. MAKE… their lesson come together with hands-on projects that help youth process and relate the lesson to their own lives.

CONFIRMATION CLASS

Sunday Morning at 10:00 – 10:45 AM // Room 203, Kings Campus

A chance to explore the Christian faith and to answer God’s call to discipleship including membership in the church. Together students learn about the beliefs and traditions surrounding our denomination. Over the course of the year, students write faith statements to present to the Board of Elders before they are made official members of the church. This is a unique opportunity for them to gain a genuine appreciation for the PC (USA) and to personalize their belief in God and  their faith in Jesus Christ.

WEEKDAYS

IMPACT GROUPS

Middle School Small Groups

These small groups are based on age and gender and meet according to the needs of those participating. Typically meeting every week, these groups are shepherded by adults and student leaders and tend to meet for breakfast or in the evening at a restaurant or the home of a leader or participant’s family. These meetings focus on building community and creating a time of fellowship in addition to devotion/Bible study. Impact groups frequently participate in other fellowship opportunities as a group.

RETREATS

Fall & Spring Retreats

Retreats are offered in the fall and spring of each year and give students the opportunity to get away for the weekend, usually in the mountains, from our busy lives and enjoy paintball, rope courses, fellowship, quiet time, music, and worship. For our 6th – 8th grade students, we’ll have an awesome time of games, singing, good food, and worship at our selected Retreat Center. For additional information, please call 843.448.4496.

MISSIONS

Summer Mission Trips

Each summer Middle School students, 6th – 8th grade students, travel all over to share the love of Christ by performing service projects in other communities around the country. In the past, we have traveled to Louisiana, West Virginia, Jamaica, Tennessee, Nicaragua, Mexico, and New York to assist with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. Our students have built or repaired homes, dug trenches for water lines, hung drywall, painted, and performed landscaping. During the week, they spend time working with members of other church groups, do construction and repair work on houses and building, enjoy evening activities, worship together, listen to speakers, and have quiet time with the Lord each morning. To register for this mission experience, and obtain all the necessary forms and guidelines, please call 843.448.4496.

Information Will Be Posted for Upcoming Mission Trips
