For youth ministry during COVID-19 visit:
“And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your children after you.” (Genesis 17:7)
Each Sunday morning, we offer classes for both Jr. High and Sr. High students, taught by our Assistant Minister and our Ministerial Intern. These classes are committed to in-depth teaching through various biblical passages or whole books of the Bible.
Wednesday Evening Teaching
On Wednesday Evening, our 5th—8th grade students gather for teaching on the Westminster Shorter Catechism, divided up between 5th—6th grades and 7th—8th grades. Over the course of 4 years, students will carefully study the entirety of the catechism. Our Sr. High students are led through the Westminster Confession of Faith by our Assistant Minister, with a focus on the theological, practical, devotional, and doxological aspects of our Confession of Faith.
Each summer, we have a conference for our Middle School students at Ridgehaven, where they have a structured week of teaching set within a fun-filled week of summer camp. This is always a highlight of the year for our younger students! Our Sr. High Summer Conference on Pawley’s Island is also a major event for the year. Our high school students gather each summer at the beach for a whole week full of teaching and fellowship (and a lot of fun!!).
SPC has monthly fellowship events for both Middle and High School ages. In these events, we are seeking to promote the building of Christian community and friendship in an organized and supervised social activity. These are usually things like bowling, movie and game nights, ice-skating, bonfires, and other such social gathering events.
We offer opportunities to participate on teams in the Church League Basketball for Youth program (late fall—winter).
Vacation Bible School
Middle and High School students have the opportunity to volunteer with Vacation Bible School held each June providing teaching and outreach to hundreds of children (members and non-members). This week-long program centers on Bible instruction and missions and involves activities and crafts.
Our annual Reformation Party is an alternative to secular Halloween. The church offers a safe and fun-filled evening of games, activities, and treats centered on God’s wonderful work in reforming the Church and is usually held the last Wednesday night in October. Middle and High School students volunteer to create and setup activities for the younger children.
