High School Confirmation
Sundays from 11:45am-1pm at PCJH in the Luke Room, lunch included
September 16th - November 11th
What’s the Bible all about? What does it mean to be a Christian? What’s the “Trinity”? These are some of the questions we’ll explore in what we call Confirmation. Confirmation is a 10-week “course” discovering the basics of what the church believes. At the end of the 10 weeks, students will receive a special gift and have the opportunity to join the church as an active member. It’s a great way to meet new friends, ask questions and learn about God.

September 20th, October 18th & November 15th
Join high school students and youth leaders from throughout the valley for this community wide gathering. Dinner is provided! This is a time to get to know other students, have thoughtful discussions about faith, and to dig into scripture.

Next meeting: October 18th at PCJH in Hayden Hall (the gym)

For Parents

One of our top priorities is to support and partner with parents in the raising of young people. Our staff and volunteers desire to not only serve the youth, but also help families grow in their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Safe Church
PCJH has adopted a Safe Church Policy which is highly regulated to guarantee all students, regardless of age, are in a safe environment. Background checks and annual training in safe church policies are required for all staff and volunteers. The church intentionally keeps updated safety and security measures, especially as they relate to children and youth ministry.

 

Special Opportunities
Parents of teenagers encounter many new challenges and opportunities and often find themselves in unfamiliar territory in their role as parents. PCJH continues to offer a variety of occasions throughout the year to better equip, encourage, and support parents. Look for upcoming events in the church calendar.

 

Stay in the Loop
We often get together for a meal, a fun event, or to serve together - outside of the listed activities. For news about these opportunities, and to stay up to date with the latest, subscribe to the email newsletter. Click here for Middle School & here for High School.
