Youth Ministry

At Grace Presbytery, our vision is to create a thriving youth ministry program that is:


Bringing individuals, congregations and the presbytery together in ministry.


Building strong relationships among all those who have been connected.


Strengthening the lives and faith of young people and those who lead young people, through opportunities for learning, prayer and service.


Praying regularly for one another and for the ministry of the church.


Helping young people, and those who lead young people, apply faith to everyday life in the church and the world.

Resources & Events

These last nine months have been challenging in many ways, especially for the church.

As many of our congregations have closed for in-person, indoor gatherings, those who serve in youth ministry have had to develop ways to keep youth connected to each other and the church.

This can be a daunting task.

To help you, our Children & Youth Resource Task Force has put together lists of activities for presbytery youth leaders to help plan online and outdoor gatherings.

Next steps: visit with your session for approval, gather the necessary supplies, and recruit needed volunteers. The list provided below includes directions for activities along with helpful tips.

If you have any questions, you will find the name and contact information
for the creator of each activity listed with it.

Grace & Peace,
Grace Presbytery Children & Youth Resource Task Force
