Youth Ministry Mission Statement:
Millwood Community Presbyterian Church is creating and providing an environment and avenues to stimulate, grow, develop, nurture, and lead the youth of our community to a life in Christ.
Welcome to the Millwood Presbyterian Church youth page. My name is Brandon Comella and I am the youth director here at the church. We are doing some great things with both Jr. High and Sr. High kids here and in our community, and I hope this site can give you enough information so you can come see it for yourself!
Sunday Morning "Coffee House"
Coffee House is our Sunday morning “Sunday School”. We meet from about 10:50-noon. We spend this time together and use it more as a discipleship piece for the middle school and high school students. We are currently going through the book of Mark and really diving into the Life of Jesus.
Since it's currently summer with 1 service, we do not have Coffee House. We will be kicking it back up September 13th at 10:50. We will meet in the front entryway of the church, then either go to The Crossing, or head over to the Community Center. If you come late, that's okay, find us in one of those two locations.
Wyldlife (Middle School Ministry):
We call our Jr. High program nights Wyldlife, which meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00 pm every week during the school year. We kick things off September 15th. Until then we are meeting at The Crossing at 5:30 and going swimming at Camp White and return around 8:30.
We have our annual Fall Camp at Camp Spalding October 23-25th... we will have more info available next month here on the website, so check back for more details to come.
Wyldlife averages about Jr. High kids and makes for a wild, crazy, and great atmosphere in The Crossing Youth Center. We have a handful of committed adult leaders who show up every week. The style may be a bit different from traditional youth groups because we have a great partnership with Young Life.
We emphasize relational youth ministry and realize that we are able to meet the needs of many youth by combining both evangelistic ministry alongside the needed discipleship part of ministry. We do this by having a week of Wyldlife, which consists of crazy and fun-filled games, alongside skits and music providing a safe place for these kids to come and break down their own walls they have put up. We end Wyldlife with more of an introductory talk about Jesus and the life we are called to live. We then invite those kids to come back the next week, which is where we change things up, and have Wyldlife Campaigner night. During Campaigner night, we aren’t quite as crazy with games. We leave more time at the end where we go a little bit deeper from the talk before, and then we split into grade and gender small group where the kids have the opportunity to ask the tough questions and go deeper if they would like. This has seemed to be a great combination for the youth as well as our leaders.
Young Life (High School Ministry):
Our Sr. High Young Life club meets from 6-8pm on Wednesday nights during the school year. Our group averages 45-55 high schoolers and is a very welcoming environment. We do a variety of things do within our weekly groups... we do games, worship, skits, regular talks, small groups, dinners together and some service nights. Come check it out and be looking on here for specific details on our schedule.
