WPC Youth Group
Youth group is for students in grades 6-12. Rising 6th-graders may join for the first time at the beginning of the school year.
We are a radically inclusive group who welcomes all into our fellowship.
We will frolic in the awesomeness of God’s creation and grow in our faith.
We will strive to live life up to the potential provided by creation.
We will spread God’s love in our group, our church, our community, and our world.
Tuesday evenings, 5:30 - 6:30 PM.
Our youth group is a collaboration with another local church, United Churches of Olympia (PCUSA-UCC). The location will alternate between Westminster Presbyterian and United Churches of Olympia each week.
1st Tuesday: Activity/Game night
2nd Tuesday: Bible study
3rd Tuesday: Cook and eat dinner together
4th Tuesday*: Service project or in-depth topical discussion
*Occasionally, a service project will take place on Sunday afternoon, and youth will not meet the following Tuesday
We seek to engage youth in:
Every other month, we have a service project at the Thurston County Foodbank. Each summer we take a week-long mission trip to perform service and explore God's world. Other opportunities are offered throughout the year and include the Crop Walk, service to the congregation, and the Olympia community.
We are striving to grow in our understanding of God, Jesus, and what it means to be a disciple of Christ in the modern world. We are seeking to realize the potential inherent in us as creation's of God through developing spiritual disciplines in the areas of Bible study, prayer, stewardship, hospitality, and service.
Youth are encouraged to be active in worship and given opportunities to serve as lay leaders, musicians and readers
Youth spend time putting their faith into action. Becoming the hands and feet of God in today's world. We strive to use our gifts and talents to spread God's love to all of creation.
