Youth Activities at Park Road
Sunday School gives our youth the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the scripture reading for that morning’s service. The Bible study is led by volunteer adult leaders who have a passion for seeing young people grow in their faith and understanding.
Sunday Nights are filled with activities that provide the youth an opportunity to explore their faith. This youth-oriented and relaxed atmosphere allows them to comfortably ask questions, reflect on discussions, be themselves, and become leaders.
Youth Musical Opportunities
Each semester, interests are discussed and our musical expression can take many forms: singing, playing handbells or other musical instruments, presenting a musical, and even drumming! No experience is necessary. Come join us and we’ll plan according to the group’s interests.
On Wednesdays, youth gather together in the community center for dinner and fellowship with one another and with the entire church family. At 6:30, youth gather together as a youth group in an informal setting and fellowship with one another. Opportunities include having a time of contemplative prayer, discussing social issues, visiting with residents at the nursing home or the children’s hospitals, or just going out for ice cream.
During the school year, our youth participate in fall and spring retreats. During the summer, they travel together to places where they are challenged to put their faith into action in summer projects. In recent years, our youth have been God’s hands and feet in New York City, Toronto, Philadelphia, Nashville, Bayou La Batre, AL, and Washington DC.
Our youth also participate in Unidiversity Youth Camp which gives them the opportunity to fellowship, worship, and have fun with 400 youth from around the South and Midwest.
Trip Permission Form
“…worship can help teens deal with a crucial question of faith: ‘How do I myself know that all this is true?’ Teenagers may borrow their parents’ car, but they need to own their own faith. Worship can make all the difference between ‘borrowed’ faith and ‘owned-for-myself’ faith.”
