We believe youth are a vital part of our church. We support the growth of their faith lives with a vibrant and active youth program called Presbyterian Youth Connection (PYC).

Building on a Solid Foundation

Youth Sunday School begins each Sunday at 10 am with youth gathering upstairs in the educational building above the Fellowship Hall.

Confirmation classes are an important part of the life of a youth in the church as this is the class that ends with a public profession of faith and transition from a baptized member into a full active member of the church.

Presbyterian Youth Connection (PYC)

Our group of PYC students meet most Sunday evenings at 5:30 PM for a meal and devotional or mission activity. Both mid-high and senior-highs participate in several conferences of the Foothills Presbytery and Montreat at different times of the year. The youth are invited to participate in worship by serving as ushers, liturgists, nursery helpers, special musicians, and by providing the entire worship service on one Sunday of the year known as Youth Sunday. In addition, they support the younger children in their activities by helping with games and crafts at the Easter celebration, Vacation Bible School, and the Christmas parade float.

Fellowship and Outreach

Each month at Fountain Inn Presbyterian Church, all youth have multiple opportunities to serve in worship and missions, to grow their understanding of faith in Sunday School, and to fellowship with other youth.

Included in the annual PYC calendar are numerous combined fellowship and mission events such as the hunger awareness weekend and the progressive dinner and Lock Inn at Christmas.

The youth host luncheons after worship about once a month to raise money for their mission fund. They put on a big yard sale in the spring as a youth misson fundraiser. This enables more youth to be able to participate in the mission trips, and it allows for PYC to include mission activities throughout the year. Learn more about youth outreach at FIPC.
