RRPC youth

Grades 6 - 12



Rocky River Presbyterian Church has a very active youth program. Our dedicated Youth Director, JD McNutt, and many adult volunteers help to keep the youth activities exciting and to encourage spiritual growth through engaging programs.  You do not have to be a member of RRPC to participate in our youth programs. Middle School Youth meet every Sunday evening from 5:00pm - 6:30pm and the High School Youth meet from 6:00pm - 7:30pm.  Dinner is served at 6:00pm for both groups.


In addition to the weekly activities on Sunday Night, we also have a teen Bible Study every Wednesday after the fellowship meal.  There are also many planned activities throughout the year.  Once a month we go to local area nursing homes to visit the elderly.  We volunteer at Homeless Shelters throughout the year and also help our older members with chores around their homes.  Our annual Adults vs. Youth Football game played on Super Bowl Sunday is something the youth look forward to every year!  We host an annual Kickball Game and a School Year Kickoff party on the Sunday before School starts.  There are trips to paintball centers, bowling, skating, whitewater center, corn mazes, movies, haunted houses and skiing.


One of the most anticipated trips of the Youth Program is the annual mission trip.  After a year of fundraising, it is a joy to see the fruits of their labor when going out to serve God by helping the less fortunate.  RRPC Youth have gone on trips to Mountaintop; Cherokee, NC; Blairsville, GA; Washington, DC; and Philadelphia, PA.  Various activities were performed such as working in soup kitchens, taking lunches out to the homeless and just talking with them, cleaning up public parks, home repairs, and home renovations such as adding decks / porches.


We invite all to come out and join our youth program.  Not only is it spiritually rewarding, but it is a BLAST with JD at the helm!  If you have any questions, call JD at 704-455-2479 or email at Youthrrpc@gmail.com.


We look forward to seeing you!  We have a great Youth group ready to meet you!

july 2017

You guys did an awesome job down in Alabama! Absolutely a great week spent serving others in the town of York, Alabama. It was a week of

rebuilding walls, painting, house supports, visiting with people, door repair, heat, humidity, rain, and helping kids at day camp. Then you guys stayed busy at night with meal preps, worship, football, and green beans! Then there's always the classic Frisbee time! You stayed busy from 6:15 am to 10 pm (and a few of you managed to pull off even later hours talking :)


Serving others is a lifestyle that you adopted and lived out for the entire week. It is a lifestyle that I hope will not stop at the end of that week for you. I hope you will continue to live that way. It can be helping at home with family or others in the local community....or beyond. Keep serving...keep living the life that Christ calls us to live...keep striving to be what we talked about on the trip with 1 Corinthians 4, a fool for Christ. Keep making the world around you a better place. Just like you started in sweet home Alabama.


Hope to see you soon,

JD
