Youth

Welcome to 2PY!

Mission Statement:

Second Presbyterian Church Youth Ministry exists to create an environment of love and acceptance where youth (Grades 6-12) learn, worship, fellowship, and serve together, and a spiritual foundation is developed that will inspire them to lead a life- long commitment with Christ.

Core Values:

  • Christ-centered
    • We create opportunities to know Christ and follow His example of love, humility, acceptance and compassion.
  • Joyful
    • We create a fun, engaging community where youth experience joy through Christ-centered relationships and service to others.
  • Faithful
    • We create consistent, reliable, stable programming that honors our tradition and develops lasting relationships.

Café 917

Sunday mornings at 9:17am come for breakfast followed by games, fellowship and then age appropriate classes for youth and parents.

Uspiritus

On the 3rd Sunday of the month, 2PY travels to the Bellewood campus of Uspiritus, an organization that works with abused and neglected KY youth, to play games and love the youth, from 4:30 – 6:30pm.

HS Girls’ Bible Study

Every other Wednesday, during the schoolyear, HS Girls gather to read the Bible and learn what it means to follow Jesus together.

Choir

Youth Choir meets on Sundays after church from 12:15 - 1:00pm (with a light lunch) in the choir room. For more information click here.

Basketball

2PY has both a high school and middle school basketball team in the youth league at Beargrass Christian Church. Practices will begin in November or December with the games on Saturday afternoons in January. The season ends with a tournament in early March.

Open Gym

7:00 - 9:00pm
Every Tuesday from November-March the gym is open to all youth.

You are invited to come to the Great Hall to hang out, shoot hoops, and play some games. There will also be a time of prayer and devotion. It’s a great way to get some exercise while drawing closer God all and the youth of 2PY. Keep an eye on the calendar for the ultimate Reunion Open Gym, and any holiday cancellations.

Confirmation

Our confirmation program is an opportunity for youth to confirm the baptismal vows of the Church. All 8th graders are invited to join the confirmation program that meets weekly during the Sunday School hour. There will be a “parallel” Confirmation Class for the parents of Confirmands.
