student / parent studies

Foundry Bible Study

Foundry is a one-year Bible Study opportunity for students and their parents to examine the whole Bible and culminates in a trip to the Holy Land. The group will meet on Sunday mornings in the Harp Center over the course of 20 Sundays during the school year. This year it is offered to 9th and 10th graders, in the future it will be 9th grade only. You still have time to register for this opportunity!  If you and your 9th or 10th grader are interested in receiving more info or in participating, please contact Chris Mucha at chrism@prumc.org.

Volunteers

Volunteers make the youth ministry at PRUMC happen. We count on our families to look for ways to “plug-in” and volunteer. Here are some of the ways you can serve.  To learn more, contact Rachel Hockman at rachelbh@prumc.org.

Shepherds are the foundation of the youth ministry at PRUMC. Shepherds are adults that love Jesus and love youth and will guide our youth along their discipleship process. Shepherds guide a small group of youth, meeting with them as a group once a week and keeping up with them throughout the year. It is a one-year commitment and our shepherds are also encouraged to join us for special events and retreats.

Foundations teachers help teach our Sunday morning gatherings. There are regular teaching opportunities as well as substitute opportunities available.

This team focuses on the hearts of our youth and families. They commit to praying regularly for youth and families in need. They also focus on surrounding our leaders and volunteers in prayer. The prayer/care team helps to facilitate and host an event per semester to help guide our families through shared cultural pressures (anxiety, social media, adolescent development, etc.).

Our host teams help set up the lobby and lounge on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings and greet youth as they gather and check in.

This team helps plan special events throughout the year, including Halloween Extravaganza, Christmas Parties, special 1|99 nights and other events.

Our environment team focuses on helping shape our physical environment for worship to follow our teaching themes. Part of the team also focuses throughout the Harp Center so that our space tells our story.

Mental Health

CHOA: Strong 4 Life

Our youth ministry team has been working closely with a group of psychologists at CHOA to help develop resources and common language surrounding mental health for children and youth. For more information contact Chris Mucha at chrism@prumc.org.
