8th Grade Confirmation

Confirmation is a unique experience for 8th graders at MPPC. 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.

For the 2022-2023 Confirmation Class, we will meet on Sundays from 4-5 pm in Grace Hall. Registration is open until Sept. 26, 2022.

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.
