Youth Program News
R. D. Blount has intentionally structured the Worship Youth Messages as an opportunity to connect with the youth and visitors in our congregation. R. D. and the Session are working together with families already attending and families that attended the YMCA Healthy Kids Day Event. We are looking to Team Mates, a school based mentoring program, to suggest at-risk youth for our CPC (Centerville Presbyterian Church) Youth Program to help make it more sustainable. Components will include capacity building, community service and adventure activity. Two other churches have asked to be involved in our CPC Youth Program.
Sunday School is held in the downstairs Youth Center on Sundays. Lessons are from the website www.pursuegod.org/kids. Youth Center amenities include a full kitchen, games, computers, XBox and a projector movie screen.
We’re happy that once a month our church family collects items and donates to the local Food Pantry. Children collect loose change once a month (Noisy Offering) to fund charities of their choice. Donations have funded a well in Malawi, meat for undernourished children, ipods for the handicapped and Youth Center amenities. Our members perform Random Acts Of Kindness throughout the year. Donation amounts vary and recipients know when they’ve “Been Presbyied!”
