Peace Church Youth Group (PCYG)
is the high school (9th-12th) ministry at Peace Church. The 1st-3rd Wednesdays of the month we get together to hang out, solve riddles, and talk about how God's word applies to our lives.
- Community: Within the context of the Church
- Missional: Proclaiming the Gospel to youth in relevant ways
- Reformed: In perspective, while being inclusive to whom we serve
- Relational: Building and valuing personal relationships and relationships with God
- Intentionally inclusive and diverse: Ethnically, culturally, denominationally, and geographically
PCYG is headed to the Twin Cities SERVE July 29-August 5, 2023, for our annual service trip. We will be working with organizations like The Dwelling Place, Avail Academy, Feed My Starving Children, Long Siding Farm, Bibles for Missions, and others. We will also host a carwash and make additional connections with organizations serving the metro area. Keep us in your prayers!
SERVE, part of ThereforeGo Ministries, is typically a one-week mission trip for teens in the United States or Canada that introduces middle school (Grades 6-8) or high school (Grades 9-12) students to spreading the gospel through missional living and confronting issues of justice. Each all-inclusive missions trip experience is planned with individual and corporate benefit in mind. SERVE provides hands-on service that is people-focused, giving SERVE trips a very personal and long-term impact.
The week typically starts with fun teambuilding and get-to-know-you activities. Each workday starts with morning devotions before teams go off to their work sites, where the emphasis is to connect with the people you are serving and share God’s love. Every night the students are led in worship and the speaker for the week brings a message related to the theme. These sessions are challenging and faith-building. Each evening also includes free time for games, sports, or hanging out with new friends. One day of the week is a ‘Day Away’ where everybody has a fun day off together at the beach, local theme park, cottage, or local attraction.
