The youth ministries at Wellshire exist to be a place where students feel safe to explore their faith in Jesus Christ, participate in God’s mission for the world, and develop authentic relationships with their peers, their leaders, and our Triune God. Wellshire’s Middle School and High School groups are open to all sixth through twelve grade students.
Youth Group Gatherings
Our Middle School and High School Youth Groups meet every Sunday. In the midst of this pandemic, we are currently meeting outside when weather permits and on Zoom when it does not. Specific details about youth group gatherings are delivered via a weekly email to all youth students and adult family members. To join the weekly email list, contact Kiersten Hill.
Wellshire Youth Ministries are committed to participating in God’s mission for the world through regular service in the local community, annual mission trips, and education surrounding systemic inequality, mission theology, and more. Contact Kiersten to learn more.
Coming to Your Backyard
Kiersten Hill is available and ready to drive to your family’s backyard for socially distanced time with your student(s). Contact Kiersten if this is something you are interested in setting up.
High School Pop-Up Parties
High School students are invited to a surprise gathering every Wednesday evening. Details are announced every Wednesday morning via Instagram (@wellshireyouth) and a text message to the High School students.
Are you interested in supporting Wellshire Youth Ministries? We are looking for adults who are committed to mentoring and supporting our Middle School and High School students. Contact Kiersten for more details.
Racial Justice Resources
What We Believe
Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race is contrary to the Word of God. God’s love extends equally to ALL people.
Students and Race
At Wellshire Presbyterian Church, we are committed to raising a generation of students who are empathetic and determined participants in God’s mission for the world. As followers of Jesus, students and adults alike are called to pursue justice and equity for all. Wellshire Presbyterian Church follows this call through education and service programs offered to all ages. If you’d like to learn more about what Wellshire Youth Ministries are doing to raise a generation of people who are committed to pursuing justice and equity for all, contact Kiersten Hill.
