Intentional Faith Development
We are all looking for ways to better understand how God is at work in the world and within each of our own lives. Faith development and spirituality are intentional practices that helps us deepen our connection to God. We offer a number of ways for you to broaden your faith.

Presbyterian Youth Connection - PYC
Youth in grades 6-12 Being a youth today is not an easy place to be. The world around us is changing faster than we can keep up! Our time together with youth and adults from our church is a time that is extremely important in the faith journeys of our young people! We meet each week for dinner at 5:30 and then for study, service and fun from 6-7:30. We laugh, we play, we study, we learn, we grow and we do it all together!
Our youth also participate in two amazing opportunities each summer as a group. Our middle school (6th-8th graders) have the opportunity to attend the Montreat Middle School Conference at Maryville College in July! What a blessing it is to worship and play with over 700 other middle school youth from around the country! Our high school youth (9th-12th graders) attend the Montreat Youth Conference in Montreat, NC in July! Imagine worshipping with over 1200 other Presbyterian Youth! It is such a blessing and a mountaintop experience for our youth and adults.
