A Christ Centered... Intentionally Missional Congregation
A Rich Tradition... A Transforming Future
6th-12th Grade Student Ministry at Southminster
Our student ministries at Southminster Presbyterian Church invite middle school and high school students into lifegiving Christian community. Together, we seek to follow Christ, to know and love God, to serve our community, and to use the gifts the Holy Spirit has given us. During middle school and high school, we help students:
  • Understand and respond to the Gospel in their daily lives
  • Discover and grow in the gifts God has given them
  • Make deep connections with peers and caring adults in the church
  • Participate in mission for the good of our neighbors and the world
  • Enter young adulthood with hope and purpose, secure in the love of Christ
Youth Group for 6th-12th Grade Students
Youth Group (6th – 12th grade) will meet from 7 – 8:30 p.m. beginning January 8, 2023. All activities will take place in the Youth Lounge and Rec Hall each Sunday.

2022-2023: Transformed Nonconformists
The theme we will explore in youth group this year comes from Romans 12:2 (CEB)
Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached a sermon in 1954 urging his congregation to live life as Transformed Nonconformists. We will dive into what that may mean for us in 2022. What are the patterns of the world we live in? What does it take to be transformed? What is God’s will for us—now, in the future? What about when we get off track?
We’ll learn how about our faith as a way of life. One that God is calling us to live out here and now.
Youth Café for 8th-12th Grade Students
Sunday mornings at 10:10am in the Youth Lounge

Grab a donut and some coffee (or hot chocolate) and take a closer look at Scripture. This school year, Youth Café will be a crash course of what the Bible is, how to read it, and why we care so much about what it has to say. Bring your questions and curiosity—and don’t be surprised if you encounter some not-safe-for-Sunday-School material.
Confirmation Class 2023
Sunday mornings at 10:10 am, January-May 2023

Confirmation is open to students in 8th grade and up.
Confirmation Class prepares students to become members of the church. It is an opportunity for 8th graders (and older) to reflect on their faith, understand the gifts God has given them, and to transition from childhood to the beginnings of adulthood within the church. Confirmation is an opportunity for students to claim the Christian faith as their own and for the church to affirm and support them as they enter a new phase of adolescence.
And it is all that while being fun! Confirmation classes bond, goof off together, go on retreats, and play games while growing in their faith. It's a great time, and a meaningful program in the lives of our students.
If you are interested in joining the class or learning more, contact Laura at
