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 they can come knowing they are loved and accepted for the special individuals 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. We help them see and to understand that God puts people into their lives at times of need so that they are never alone.
The Youth Ministries Committee has developed an intergenerational community of faith, living out baptismal promises, MPC will nurture and engage 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 by MPC having developed a series of programs including Youth Club, Youth in Mission and Sunday school and/or High School Seminar. Each event in this ministry teaches the youth of MPC and the community spiritual formation disciplines that are easily grasped and acted upon by the different age groups. 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.
This is a well-developed ministry here at MPC. We believe in our youth and the leaders they will become as they mature into women and men. 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.
