Come explore and study your relationship with Jesus and others as a part of the youth of East Brentwood Presbyterian Church. We encourage all youth ages 11 to 18 to expand their understanding of their faith by engaging in biblical teachings and serving others in our community. Weekly meetings are held both for the High School Presbyterian Youth Group (PYG), Sundays, 4-5:30 p.m. and the Middle School Group (608), once a month on a Sunday from 3-4 p.m. and again on Sunday Funday with the whole group.
Relationships are an important part of teen life at EBPC. We are an inclusive, open, honest group who desire to learn more about our fellow peers, our connection to God and to people near and far.
Our Fellowship events are designed to help us embrace honest socialization while having fun. We are able to grow in love and support of each other as a church family during our times together. Our past adventures have included: lake trips, laser chase, canoeing, Sounds games, Escape Games, kickball games and more!
Our EBPC Youth desire to expand their understanding of their faith through regular participation in youth meetings. During the school year, the high school youth (PYG) meet weekly at 4:00 pm on Sundays for in-depth chats and discussions about the teachings of the Bible along with simple conversations, that include topics such as parents, school, world religions, prayer styles and morality. Our middle school youth (608) meet once a month on a Sunday from 3-4 p.m. for conversation, food, fellowship and games that include topics such as peer relationships, school, prayer, decision-making skills and more.
Regular participation in NaCoMe conferences and Montreat is also a fabulous way to grow in faith with other Presbyterian youth. Nacome Youth retreats happen twice a year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring. A faith and fun-filled weekend in the beautiful valley of Nacome Conference Center. Meet and greet Presbyterian youth from all over middle tennessee. Montreat is a week long Presbyterian Youth conference held in the stunning mountains of Montreat. N.C. This is the perfect week to expand on your faith and meet youth from all over the United States.
Our youth also regularly act as liturgists, ushers and greeters for church service. Being able to be involved in many aspects of the church is a rewarding and necessary relationship for the youth, and once a year the youth plan, organize and implement all aspects of Youth-led worship service.
Service to others is a key part of being a Christian youth at EBPC. Youth members share compassion and love by serving those in need by participating in monthly service opportunities. Preston Taylor Ministries, Nashville Rescue Mission, GraceWorks, and Morning Pointe nursing home are a few agencies served. Additionally, every summer a week is spent participating in mission work throughout the US. Past trips include Oklahoma, Asheville, NC, Chicago, IL and Arkansas. These trips are fun team building experience and deeply spiritual service opportunity for all who attend.
