The Youth Committee provides support to the middle school, high school, and college aged youth of our church community through program review and oversight, prayer and encouragement.

The committee assists Austin Ricketts with program development and specific tasks so they have more opportunities for relationship building and spiritual development of our youth. Opportunities exist to not only help plan for future events for the middle school and high school youth, but also to provide support for college aged young adults to maintain a connection with God and the church.

The mission of the WPC Youth Ministry is “to provide a loving, accepting environment where youth come to know God’s love intimately, develop their faith, experience Christian community and are empowered to serve others.

Past Youth & College programming includes:

  • Confirmation support through volunteering to be a confirmation table leader
  • Volunteering to help teach middle school and high school Sunday school or lead college bible studies
  • Organize and volunteer for Youth Group Retreats.
  • Partnering with area missions to do volunteer activities within the community.
  • Raising money for mission partners and their programs
  • Volunteer and assist Austin Ricketts with the Middle School and High School Youth Groups on Sunday nights
  • Organizing and sending care packages to college age young adults to support and encourage them.

Current congregational members of the Youth Ministry Committee are:

  • Chair: Chris Bernholdt, Elder
  • Elizabeth Castleman
  • Beth Collins
  • Clyde Diehl
  • Melissa Naiva
