The Youth Ministry program is one of the great strengths of JCPC! It’s a vibrant program where young people (grades 6 – 12) learn and grow in their faith through worship, service to others, the study of God's Word, and frequent fellowship opportunities that empower them to grow into mature Christians.
We have a strong emphasis on servant leadership and faithful discipleship in a community of believers. Our youth are encouraged to bring friends and visitors are always welcome. We are spread amongst several local high schools and middle schools, and our youth are athletes, musicians, artists, actors, and scouts. At JCPC, we value those gifts and the ways our youth use them to express themselves and serve others to the glory of our creator.
Note: All program is currently on Zoom and not at JCPC. Contact Rev. Brian Daoust for login info.
Bible Study: Our youth gather for Bible study on alternating Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM.
Youth Group: Our weekly program for youth embraces learning through fellowship and group activities that emphasize service to God and others. Each week our youth come together for a great meal followed by recreation, music and worship, and a thought-provoking lesson, activity, or service project. Currently, the MS Youth have their Zoom meetings at 6:00 PM and the HS at 7:00 PM each Sunday.
Strings & Things: Do you play guitar, ukulele, drums, keyboard, or sing? We have a small youth band to play praise music for youth group, retreats, and worship. We meet by Zoom at 5:00 PM on Sundays. If you play a more classical instrument for band or orchestra, there will be opportunities to play for worship. See our music ministries page and contact Heidi or Christian.
Serving the Homeless: Every second Sunday of the month, the youth head to the homeless shelter at First Presbyterian in downtown Atlanta. We leave JCPC at 5:45 AM, head downtown, serve breakfast, and grab a bite on the way back.
Retreats, Events, & Summer Programs: In addition to our regularly schedule events, we also have a Fall retreat, Christmas parties, service projects, pool parties, lock-ins, a prayer vigil, Youth Sunday and monthly worship leadership as liturgists, and they help with community fundraisers like the pumpkin patch, golf tournament, and more.
This summer, due to complications of Covid 19, we will schedule events for small close to home activities like going to the park. Stay tuned for more info by joining the email list and signing up for text alerts.
