Youth – Presbytery Youth Council

Why Presbytery Youth Events?

As Presbyterians we believe in the connectional church. We are called to live out our faith in community. Events such as these help our youth see that their cloud of witnesses is much larger than their local congregation.  These events also give every church an opportunity to offer diverse youth programming.

PLUS — The Presbytery Youth Council Make it FUN!

The PYC plan, lead and invent exciting gatherings of middle and high school students throughout the presbytery. Join in the energy and adventure by coming to one (or all) of the events!

The Presbytery of Coastal Carolina Youth Council is a unique opportunity for 9th – 12th graders to gain (and share) valuable leadership skills, learn more about the Presbyterian Church (USA), get to know other youth from the Presbytery, and serve the church in an important and challenging way.

Our Youth Council currently plans several events and there will be youth activities happening in each community.

A few things to make note of as you apply for Youth Council:

  • Each member is asked to serve a two year term. You may “renew” when your two year term is up, or you may rotate off after one year if necessary.
  • All members must be present at the October Presbytery meeting where we as a council are installed.
  • Members are asked to be present for at least two youth council events. This includes planning meetings before events. We will schedule those closer to our events.
  • Applications accepted now for 2020-2021

If you have any questions, or if you are an adult wishing to serve on the Youth Council, please contact Erin Wehrmeister, or (910) 578-7724 .

One thought on “Youth – Presbytery Youth Council”

  1. Hi,
    My name is Megan Petero and I am the youth intern for the summer at Community Presbyterian Church in Pinehurst, NC. I am currently organizing the youth calendar and was hoping to include youth events sponsored by the Presbytery of Coastal Carolina. I can’t seem to find a calendar of 2019-2020 youth events on this website. Could someone direct me to where I could find a calendar or email one to me?
