YOUTH MINISTRY

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Youth Ministry creates an environment where youth and young adults feel welcomed and supported. Our youth deepen their faith through studying scripture in Middle School God Squad and High School Youth Group.
 
We strive to provide a safe place where they can connect with God through unconventional methods, and regularly serve as worship leaders in Sunday services.
 
We provide recreational activities on a monthly basis, where our youth have fun and fellowship with one another. Our youth have a special role with mission activities by partnering with local and international missions, including our annual trip with Amor Ministries to help families build houses in Mexico.
 
We strive to create community where youth know they are loved by God and all of us!
 
Sunday Morning Youth Group is on Sunday mornings in the Youth Lounge at BPC. 
All kids 6th through 12th grade are welcome!  
 
 
 
 
Youth Group
We have a youth group for Jr/Sr High students that meets every week on Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00pm. We meet in the youth lounge on the 2nd floor of the church. Doors on the alley are most convenient to be dropped off/picked up. We have games, sing some songs, and have a lesson. It’s a great event to bring friends to.
 
 
Confirmation
Confirmation is coming up this January. It is a time where students will meet for 6 weeks after church to learn about the basics tenants of faith, church, and the presbyterian denomination. At the end of the curriculum, students are eligible to be baptized (if they weren’t already as infants) and are even given the opportunity to become members of the church if they choose. Confirmation is open to any student who is a high school Freshman or older.
 
 
Meet the SALTSSummer Action Leadership Team
 
Abby Green will be entering 11th grade at Santa Monica High School in the Fall. This is her first year serving as a S.A.L.T. member. She wanted to serve because she wants to give kids in our youth program the same opportunity she had to make great friends and memories that they will never forget. She also sees this as a chance to dive deeper in her own faith and to strengthen her relationship with God. Abby is organized and a great leader.
 
Sofia Lizardi will be entering her Freshman year at Cal Berkeley in the Fall. This is her first year serving as a S.A.L.T. member. She wants to spend her summer investing in our youth (including her 6th grade brother Dylan).
