What is PYF?

PYF is our youth group for grades 7-12. The goal of PYF is not to be just place in the church where youth can hang out, but rather to discover that whenever we get together, we ARE the church. Through everything we do, we are trying to build better relationships with each other, and better relationships with Christ.

We meet each Sunday for our regular meetings with both high school and middle school, as well as for Wednesdays for high school bible study. Throughout the year, we engage in many local mission opportunities, lock-ins, beach retreats, day trips and more!

The PYF Vision

Through Christ, we seek to be...

  • A community of teenagers who value Christ above all else and who are committed to helping one another in both good times and bad (Matt. 22:34-40).
  • A community of teenagers who are invested in the entire life of the church, committed to their families, and involved in Mooresville as a whole (Matt. 5:14-16; Eph. 6:1-3).
  • A community of teenagers who are united through Christ, regardless of social group (John 17:20-24).
  • A safe place where every student is welcomed and loved by leaders, and, most importantly, other students in Christ (John 13:34-35).
  • What are some of our events?

    What are some or our summer events?

    High School Mission Trip

    Rising grades 9-12

    Each year at the end of June, we take a mission trip to another region in the country, serving God in various ways. Past trips have included painting, plumbing, tarring, building, demolishing, cleaning, feeding, weeding, teaching, singing, and more - but always serving. Our mission trips have taken us from Washington state to Washington D.C. & from Chicago to Pittsburgh.
