NorthPark Youth Ministry

Youth Activities

PYC (Presbyterian Youth Connection) is NorthPark Presbyterian’s youth group. We meet once a month starting at 5:30pm on Saturday for an evening of dinner, games, activities, mission, and discussion. Youth have the option of sleeping over and continuing the fun or leaving at the conclusion of the evening’s activities.

Parent volunteers make PYC a great success by helping with planning, food, and chaperoning. There’s always room for folks to join us as youth advisors for PYC.
 
Additional opportunities for youth at NorthPark include participation in fellowship activities, alternative worship activities, and service opportunities. There is meaningful discussion as teens share their experiences and concerns, but there is plenty of time for laughter, too!

Planning for PYC and Sunday School topics is prepared by the Youth Ministry Council, which meets quarterly. All youth are welcome to add their voices to the council. 
 
PYC is a perfect opportunity to be with church friends and bring new friends to join the fun. for more information about how to get involved with PYC contact Kathy McCarron.

Children's Ministries

At NorthPark we believe parents, teachers and the church are in partnership together to educate our children in the faith.

We seek to provide an atmosphere in which the children identify church as a place where they feel accepted, affirmed and loved, as well as a sense of belonging.

We present biblical stories as the basis for our Christian faith and understanding, using the curriculum as primary source and guide.

We present lessons in ways that encompass different learning styles and invite everyone to engage in hands-on experiences with learning and mission.
 
Sunday School is offered weekly for those age 2 through 6th grade.

Other opportunities for learning and spiritual development include Vacation Bible School, music, mission and service projects, as well as time devoted to having fun and enjoying each other.

Please contact Kathy McCarron, Director of Children and Family Ministries, for more information.

Our Music

Music is integral to worship at NorthPark Presbyterian Church and is part of both the 8:30 a.m. and the 11:00 a.m. worship services.  Although special instrumental, choral and solo music is part of our worship, the congregation is also encouraged to worship through music with hymns, responses, and special musical offerings throughout the year.

Opportunities for participation in our music programs are available for all age levels, and interested NorthPark members and friends are encouraged to participate.

NorthPark's Handbell Choir practices Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m., followed by Sanctuary Choir rehearsals at 7:30 p.m.

To learn more about participating with the handbell choir, email Erich Reich, handbell choir director.

For general questions music programs and the choirs, please contact Tinsley Silcox, Director of Music, or Carol Blackwood, Director of Children's Music.

Thai Worshiping Community

NorthPark Presbyterian has a Thai worshiping community that meets in our Youth Lounge on Sundays at 11:00 a.m.

Each week a group lunch takes place following this worship service.

The Thai community joins our regular 11:00 a.m. service in the Sanctuary every time communion is served (approximately once a month.)

There are also numerous fellowship opportunities that are co-hosted on a regular basis, offering our entire congregation the opportunity to socialize and celebrate in unison.
