Youth

Sunday School

Youth Sunday School classes for middle school and high school students meet Sundays at 9:30 in Room 106 in the lower level of the church during the normal Sunday school hour.

Confirmation Class

A four-month Confirmation Class is offered in three-year grouping on Sunday mornings for our 6th – 8th grade youth, based on demand. During this time, the youth explore what it means to profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and join the church. During this time, most youth make the decision to join the church. Short-term confirmation classes are offered by the pastor between the two to three-year offerings.

Youth Fellowship

Youth in grades 6-12 meet each Sunday evening 6:30 – 8:00 for a shared meal, study and activities designed to enhance their recognition of and understanding of God’s work in their lives and their work in the lives of others. This very active group will assist in designing the syllabus for each semester.  Meals are provided by parents.

Mission Trips

Western Boulevard youth are very active in mission projects. One of their favorite types of projects is a mission trip. They have been to the Gulf coasts several times, have made several trips to different parts of North Carolina, and have helped rebuilding efforts in New Jersey. On these trips, youth help restore and build homes, spend time worshiping together and, of course, just have fun.

Retreats

WBPC youth attend several retreats throughout the year. We attend retreats at Camp Don Lee, Camp Willow Run, Massanetta Springs Conference Center, and Montreat Conference Center.  These trips are packed with fun, fellowship, and spiritual formation!
