Student IMPACT

COVID-19 Updates
In light of current events and since we are unable to meet on Sunday mornings, we are encouraging parents to rise to the challenge of being the primary spiritual influencers of their children. We will continue to have youth group and small groups via online video chat. If you are not on our email list, contact Ryan For current updates and other resources from Memorial Park, please check the Bulletin Board page here. We trust and pray that the Lord is at work in BIG ways in the homes of our families even during this uncertain time!

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 
In addition to Sunday morning classes, Sunday afternoon Youth Group provides the opportunity for middle students to gather for some fun while building relationships with each other and growing in Christ.  Wednesday evenings provide a time for smaller group studies and discussion through Teen LIFE Groups.

High School

In addition to Sunday morning classes, Sunday evening Youth Group provides an opportunity for high school students to have some fun while building relationships with one another and growing in Christ.  Wednesday evenings provide a time for smaller group studies and discussion through Teen LIFE Groups.

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 at MPC, North Hills Community Outreach Food Bank, Compassion Day, World Vision, and The Pittsburgh Project. Extending beyond our community, we collect shoes for Soles for Jesus and raise funds for the children of Sierra Leone through our annual Fast for Leone. 

Our high school students have the opportunity to participate in a domestic mission trip every summer and an international mission trip every other summer. Get in Touch >> or Learn More >>

Our middle school students have the opportunity to participate in a local service week held in the summer. Students spend the week sleeping at the Clayton Center and going out into the community to serve each day. Get in Touch >> or Learn More >>
