Teen Ministry | Memorial Park Church


Student IMPACT

Our Student IMPACT teen programs are designed to support students as they journey through life during the challenging years of middle and high school. We impact their lives with the message of the Gospel, help it to take root and grow so they can make an impact on the world around them.

Our Mission and Vision

The mission of Student IMPACT is to walk beside students as they examine their faith and make the decision to follow Jesus; to build deep and meaningful relationships; and to support and partner with parents in their role as the primary spiritual nurturer in the life of their student. 

Our Programs

Whether through small groups, bible studies, classes, retreats, or outreach, we have an opportunity for students to join in a community where they can grow in faith and life. 

Middle School 
Students in grades 6-8 have a variety of opportunities to get involved at Memorial Park. Regular weekly meetings on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights are just a couple of the ways to build meaningful personal and spiritual relationships.

High School

In addition to Sunday morning classes, Sunday evenings provide an opportunity for High School students to get together and grow in Christ. Students in grades 9-12 who are not already members of Memorial Park Church are also encouraged to attend our Confirmation Class each week to examine their faith and make the decision to follow Jesus as a member of Memorial Park.

Mission trips and service projects are great ways to grow in your faith while serving to further God's kingdom. Stretching and reaching beyond your comfort zone to help the needy and hurting in our community and our world can be a life-changing and everlasting experience. Our local outreach involvement is with Presents for Patients through the Giving Tree @ MPC, North Hills Community Outreach Food Bank, Compassion Day, World Vision, and The Pittsburgh Project. Extending beyond our community, we hold a shoe cutting event for Sole Hope, contribute shoes to Soles for Jesus, and raise funds for the children of Sierra Leone through Fast for Leone. 

In the summer of 2019, we will send a team to the Wilmington, North Carolina area to serve with Praying Pelican Missions as they work to restore the areas that were damaged by Hurrican Florence.  The dates of the trip are Saturday, July 13 - Saturday, July 20 and the cost per student is $575.  We will provide group fundraising opportunities to assist with the cost and provide information for an individual fundraising opportunity.

Spots are filled!  Contact thawbaker@mpcepc.org if you would like to join the team - extra spots are not guaranteed, but we can check with Praying Pelican Missions.
