We partner with parents to equip our 6th-12th grade students to become faithful, lifelong followers of Jesus Christ, together in God’s world.

Students who are 9th grade and older can choose to participate in Confirmation, which is a dedicated season to learn about their personal faith and culminates in a public profession of faith and membership at National Presbyterian Church.

We provide many opportunities for youth to serve throughout the year! Helping with food drives, packing up welcome boxes for families moving from homelessness to homes, and making sandwiches for those with food insecurities are just a few examples. In addition, juniors and seniors who are interested in helping lead and disciple some of our children are invited to serve as youth leaders for the weekly Club 45 (4th and 5th graders). If you are interested, please contact Kristin!


Prior to your youth's participation in our youth activities, we ask that you complete a brief registration.
