Mission Statement

The Mission Statement of the Youth Ministries at the Presbyterian Church in Morristown is where faith begins and grace abounds. We believe that our faith in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is always “beginning” in the sense that as a community of believers, our faith is never completed or finished. Faith is something that is constantly changing and growing.

For middle school, our faith “begins” again as many of us start attending different schools, continue maturing and growing up, and start meeting in the super-cool youth room at church!  

For 8th graders who join our confirmation program, their faith “begins” again as we learn about what it means to be a follower of Christ and a presbyterian.

For high schoolers, their faith “begins” again as they have just finished their confirmation year and enter into the church as full members. We seek to be a ministry that is always quick to give grace to others in our youth ministry, church, and the Morristown community.

Our core values are the heartbeat of our youth ministry. Being a welcoming community that is service-oriented and focused on cultivating faith is what we try to build all of our programming around.”  

 

 

Scholarships Available!

There are several scholarships available to PCM members attending an institution of higher learning! Check them out here.

Acolytes

Being an acolyte provides teens in grades 8-12 with an opportunity to fully participate in worship.  Our Acolytes assist at the 10am worship service, carrying the light of Christ into the Sanctuary before service, light the candles on the Communion table and carry the light out to the world at the conclusion. Acolytes may receive the offering, offer the prayer of dedication, read the first scripture reading or participate in Baptism. Two acolytes serve each Sunday once every six weeks. 

Confirmation

For 8th grade and up (and for those who may have missed in years past).  Confirmation is offered every year for 8th grad students. Older students who were unable to patriciate in confirmation their 8th grade year are welcome to join. For more information or questions, please reach out to Patrick Allred.
