Youth Group Program
Service is a key component of our Youth Program. Our church sends a well-prepared and hardworking team of High School Youth and adults on a Mission Trip to John’s Island, South Carolina. The trip is scheduled during Public School April vacation week. This week is transformational! Service opportunities continue each summer through Summer of Service (SOS), a Haystack Award winning program, which provides community service opportunities for Middle School and High School youth. SOS provides hands-on assistance to organizations which provide charitable social service and seek to correct injustice.
We look to inspire the Youth to be good to each other, and do all they good they can in the world. Our Youth continue to inspire our congregation to live Christ-centered lives.
We are always in need of chaperones to help out at middle and high school youth meetings on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30pm. No special skills required - just a willingness to come and help supervise. Some cookie baking assistance may be requested. Please contact Jan Holden to sign up for an upcoming meeting. A PERMISSION/EMERGENCY CONTACT FORM needs to be turned in for each youth participant.

"Once upon a time there was a little girl. She was lost. And not the type of lost that can easily be found again. She was lost in her own mind, a place where no one could find her, a place that she didn't know how to leave, or who to go to to ask for help. She couldn't seem to see the light, no matter where she turned. Then one day an angel came to her and asked her a simple question: did she go to church? She replied with a smile, saying that she simply had never thought about it. So the angel took her to south church. And suddenly something changed in her. She realized that this new place was her safety, a haven where people of all different backgrounds and faiths and struggles could come together to grow in God's love. If it wasn't for south church, she would never have known what could happen when she had such an amazing community of people standing next to her, growing with her, going through their own pains. The music set her free. The sermons filled her mind with wisdom and strength. And when she strayed from her faith, questioning if it was all worth it, well, south church was still there. It was always there and with it, God's love. She realized that her community was something that she could count on, and her faith grew stronger everyday. She believed. She loved. She forgave. And most importantly, she healed.
South Church has done more for me than even I can understand. It's hard to put into just one or two words but I think you all deserved a proper story. This is the story of how south church saved a girl. That girl, who is standing in front of you today, is more than thankful to south church and everyone that has touched my life. I couldn't be where I am today without any of you, and without God to lead my way. So thank you."
