We have a vibrant and growing community of youth at MPC.

We strive to offer an all-inclusive youth ministry where we nurture and love the young people of our church and the city of St. Augustine with the abounding grace of Jesus Christ. We do this through our weekly programs and special events, and most importantly through building relationships. We believe in investing in youth leaders not just for the future but for service to the church and the world now. 

We want all youth to know they are welcome here, they belong here, and they are loved here.

Sunday School

Sunday School takes place from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. each week. Our classes are divided into 5th/6th grade, 7th/8th grade, and high school. Enjoy a yummy breakfast treat or sandwich as we explore scripture and God’s word for us.

Lounge in the Loft

After our weekly church family dinner (FEAST), all of our youth are invited from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. to come lounge in our youth loft. You can bring homework or simply hang out. Sometimes we even watch movies. It’s a wonderful time of relaxing together.

Sunday Night Youth Group

Our middle school students (6th – 8th grade) meet from 5:00 to 6:45 p.m. and our high school students meet from 6:15 to 8:00 p.m. each Sunday.

Middle and high school students share a meal together from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m. 

Youth group involves fun games and fellowship, worship, dinner and a devotional. 

The second Sunday of each month is Story Sunday and our youth meet middle and high school combined from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Each Story Sunday we enjoy energizers, games, dinner and we hear a faith story from someone in the congregation.

Serving St. Augustine

Serving St. Augustine is our youth outreach committee. The committee meets monthly under the supervision of our youth director, to plan and implement mission and outreach opportunities for our youth in the community and at church. 

They have organized hygiene bags for the youth shelter Port in the Storm, planned our Veteran’s Luncheon and put together a Christmas party for the Homeless Coalition.

Each year we try to provide plenty of opportunities for fun off church campus—whether it’s going to see a movie or heading to the Trampoline Park. Sometimes we provide a simpler avenue for spending time together like a movie night on a Saturday in our youth loft.

Throughout the year, MPC hosts other special youth events like:

• Summer mission camp
• Youth retreats at Camp Montgomery
• Lock-ins
• Veterans Luncheon
• Service Projects
• Montreat Youth Conference
• Movie nights
