Youth Ministry


Join us on Wednesday nights for Refuge.  Refuge is now open for grades 1st – 3rd–Note the early ending time for younger children. Drop your child off for dinner at 6:30-7 and a lesson from 7-7:30. Grades 4th – 12th gather each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00pm. 

Our “program year” runs from September through May. We eat dinner together and then break into separate age groups for bible study and activities. Once a month we worship together as a group and participate in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper (Usually the first Wednesday of every month). We ask that parents and guardians please sign their child in and out upon drop off and pick up.  Here is what Wednesdays look like:

6:30-6:50PM, Dinner in Carmel Hall

6:50-7:30PM, Small Groups (Age-specific: 4th-6th graders, Jr. High & Sr. High)

7:30-8:00PM, Games/ Fellowship

8:00-8:30PM, Student Leader Meeting

The purpose and vision of the youth ministry at Carmel Presbyterian Church is to provide a place of refuge, renewal and reaching out.  We are continually developing adult lay leaders to partner with our pastors in reaching out to the young people of our congregation and the greater Glenside area.
