ABOUT THE YOUTH MINISTRY COMMITTEE
Morrisville Presbyterian Church (MPC) has a richly rewarding ministry for youth. This is a safe haven where the youth of MPC and the community have a place that they can come to, knowing that they are loved and accepted for the special individuals that they are, knowing they are not alone because God is there for them to help in times of need and times of joy.
The main purpose of this ministry is to teach Christ’s love to the youth and to help them grow as a new generation of Disciples of Christ.
The Youth Ministries Committee has developed an intergenerational community of faith by living out our baptismal promises. MPC will nurtures and engages youth in their relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior through worship, witness, faith formation and spiritual fellowship so that they become faithful disciples and servant leaders in Christ’s church and the world.
All of this is accomplished through a series of programs including Youth Club, The Youth in Mission Trip and Sunday school. We strive to teach easily attainable spiritual disciplines, provide a sense of loving morals, and foster a fun environment where youth can grow. We hope to develop the awareness of God’s love for them so that they are more aware of God’s actions in their lives and who they are in relationship to God.
We believe in our youth and the leaders they will become as they mature into young adults. We want them to live and thrive in their faith and the life of the church by creating a vibrant ministry as we live our lives together as the body of Christ in this community of faith.
