Youth Ministry

Welcome to BRICK!

Our goal at BRICK is to create a context in which God and others are paramount. We hope to provide students with a safe place to be themselves while striving to point them toward the love of Jesus and in so doing, share that love with those in and outside of our community.
From September through June, Wednesday nights are BRICK nights for Senior High, and Thursday nights are BRICK nights for Junior High!
Over the summer, BRICK Youth volunteer for VBS, participate in a houseboat trip, a junior high camping trip, and other fun events like movie nights and pool parties.

Confirmation is the time when young people claim the promises that were made on their behalf in baptism. It is also an opportunity to learn what Presbyterians believe and to become full-fledged members of Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church. Students who have not been baptized will have the opportunity to do so when they are confirmed.

who can participate?

For 2017, confirmation is available for students in grades 8 – 12.

what’s involved in the program?
The program consists of 7 classes (held on Sundays 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM), a retreat, a mentor relationship, church attendance, a service opportunity and study of the material.
All are mandatory pieces of the program (attendance at all classes is required, but one miss is allowed if absolutely necessary). Confo is a big commitment—please consider your participation carefully!
