NPC's Youth Ministry
We are equipping our youth to become faithful, lifelong followers of Jesus Christ, together in God’s world. Middle School and High School students are invited to join our youth programs, as we strive to grow in faith in Christ together.
We have a dedicated team of volunteer teachers who lead each class and help youth connect the teachings of our Christian creeds and Scriptures with their own lives.
High School Small Groups
High school small groups meet on Sunday evenings for fellowship and intentional discipleship.
Bring a friend to youth group for games, snacks, and a short devotional.
Students who are 9th grade and older can choose to participate in Confirmation during the spring semester, which is a dedicated season to learn about their personal faith and culminates in a public profession of faith and membership at National Presbyterian Church.
