Spring Branch Presbyterian Youth Connection (PYC)
Includes Middle School Youth (grades 6-8) and High School Youth (grades 9 to 12). The overall goal of the PYC is to invite and nurture youth in the faith as disciples of Jesus Christ. Within the organization there are four areas – Service, Fellowship, Worship and Exploration. The Youth with the team of advisors plan their activities. To request more information, click here.
Area of Service – Both the Middle School Youth and the Senior High Youth participate in Service activities throughout the year.

Check the Youth Calendar for up-coming events.
Area of Fellowship – Christian Fellowship is found in Lock-ins, watching movies together, having dinners together. Check the Youth Calendar for up-coming events.
Area of Worship – The PYC plans and participates in many of the worship services on Sunday morning and at their various functions. Specifically, they lead worship on Youth Sundays and frequently lead the Children’s Moment during morning worship. Check the Youth Calendar for up-coming events.
Area of Explorations – Through the PYC, the Youth are exploring other religions by visiting Synagogues and Mosque and attending Mass, discussing self-image, and touring local colleges. Check the Youth Calendar for upcoming events.
Sunday School (9:30am)
The Middle and Senior High Youth meet in the Youth Room of the Gathering Place.
Youth (usually Middle School students) participate in a 16 week Journey of Faith for Confirmation and Commissioning. Classes include discussion of church history, governance, sacraments, resurrection, and the continuing faith journey. Each student is paired with a church member who meets with him/her to read and discuss the Gospel of Luke and to share how to live out the faith in today’s world. Contact Rev. Kristin Galle to learn more.
Spring Branch Presbyterian Church sponsors both Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. We know this is a great way for youth and children in our community to develop personal skills, confidence, respect, and faith.
