Welcome! We strive with God to help young people become life-long, joy-filled followers of Christ who belong to the Body and minister to the world. Interested in finding out more information or getting involved? Contact Pastor Annika, Pastor of Youth & Young Adult Faith Formation.
Middle School Youth Group (6th-8th grade students)
Our MS YG gives students a safe place to explore their identity, belonging, and purpose in Christ.
Join us as we meet regularly during PSCRC’s “MidWeek” Faith Formation nights (occurring every other Wednesday night during the school year)! The group also participates in a weekend winter retreat to Camp Berea in New Hampshire, a yearly service project, and fun events such as our annual Messy Night, game nights, and more.
High School Youth Group (9th-12th grade students)
HS YG is a place for students to grow deeper in their faith and be challenged to live their lives for Christ.
The group enjoys monthly fellowship events and service projects, as well as 3 retreats throughout the year: our kickoff “24-Hour Retreat”, a winter retreat to Berea with the MS YG, and a spring “Ekklesia Retreat” where we explore elements of CRC doctrine (Lords Prayer, Apostles Creed, Heidelberg Catechism) and put into practice what it means to spend intentional time with God.
On Sunday mornings throughout the school year, high school students are encouraged to meet before the worship service for breakfast and life groups.
Open Door (7th-12th grade students*)
Open Door is an after school program where students are welcomed into our church’s “Foundation Cafe” on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4pm when school is in session.
Started in October of 2008 the program was dreamed of and created by teenagers who wanted a safe place to hang out after school. In 2013, the program acquired the name "Open Door"; as this is truly what the program aims to be - an Open Door to any student who wishes to have a place to belong. At Open Door, students have the opportunity to hang out in a safe place, grab a bite to eat, talk with compassionate adults, do homework, and generally be encouraged, held accountable, and cared about.
*Students in grades 6 and below are encouraged to participate at the Rockdale Youth Center.
Whitinsville SERVE is a ThereforeGo (formally Youth Unlimited) missions experience that is hosted at PSCRC.
Entering our 5th year, our congregation has been challenged, stretched, mobilized and blessed through the experience providing a week of service projects, worship, and spiritual growth to approximately 80 students and leaders from throughout the USA and Canada every July.
Through a student leadership team called the “Barnabas Team”, our own high school students also have the opportunity to grow in their abilities, faith, and a heart for service throughout the week of SERVE. Find out more about Whitinsville SERVE here!
