Youth Ministries

Our JR and SR Youth Groups are a safe place of fun, outreach, relationship building, and deepening our youth’s relationship with God through worship, study, and prayer. We are currently meeting in small groups both in online and in-person format.

Our monthly Gathering NIGHT is a social time where youth can sign up to attend a fun and physically distanced activity. Find the link to our events calendar below.

Our Philosophy

Youth Ministry at KPC rests on two pillars. The first is to know God, and the second is to know the richness of the community of Christ through belonging. We enable youth to do this in a variety of ways, including youth group on Friday nights, small groups, and mentoring groups.
