Welcome to CornerStone Youth Ministries (CYM) at MPPC!

What is CornerStone Youth Ministry at MPPC? This model has three areas that make up the flow of CornerStone. Youth must be a part of all aspects to participate. Contact Courtney Kraus to get connected!

PEER2PEER GROUP
This is your faith foundation for youth group led by college students. Here youth will spend time digging into Bible with various studies. Occurs weekly during the summer.

CORE GROUP
This is your faith formation for youth group led by adults of MPPC. Here youth will gather as two P2P Groups to make a larger group. This will feel like Sunday School with big Bible elements plus games. Occurs 1st and 3rd Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

BIG GROUP
This is your faith transformation for youth led by the Youth Director and volunteers. Here youth will use what they have learned to share their faith to the world. This may be a mission trip, Montreat, or an event at the church campus. This is when we come together as one BIG youth group. This will feel like Sunday Night Youth Group. Occurs 2nd and 4th Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

8th Grade Confirmation

Confirmation is a unique experience for 8th graders at MPPC. A fall lock-in kicks off the Confirmation experience. Our youth are able to seek out new and meaningful insights to their faith and what is means to be a part of the body of Christ Sunday morning classes, small group discussions, and service opportunities.

Trips & Retreats for Middle and High School

TRIPS & RETREATS – MIDDLE SCHOOL
Trips and Retreats at MPPC seek to strengthen the community of faith through fellowship, recreation, study, and serving our neighbors here at home and around the world. Whether it is growing in faith through the Montreat Middle School Conference at Maryville College or taking on the zip line at Awanita Valley Christian Retreat Center, it is a response to God’s grace and claim on our lives.

SUMMER RETREATS – HIGH SCHOOL
Summer Trips keep the high school youth very busy. For our first summer trip, we head up to the mountains of North Carolina for a week to participate in the Montreat Youth Conference. We then travel to Raleigh, North Carolina for a week working with the folks at Raleigh Youth Mission doing mission work with various organizations in downtown Raleigh. Then a group goes to Bamberg, South Carolina to work on houses alongside other youth with the Salkehatchie Summer Service. At the end of the summer, eight to ten of our youth join a group of adults and fly down to Tegucigalpa, Honduras to work with the LAMB Institute.
