High School IMPACT

High School Student IMPACT

In addition to Sunday morning classes, Sunday evenings provide an opportunity for High School students to get together and grow in Christ. Our weekly programming provides an opportunity for students to continue to develop personal and spiritual relationships.

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.

Our small group studies, time spent with students outside the walls of the church, retreats, service projects and mission trips provide opportunities to foster deep, meaningful relationships through a fun and comfortable environment. We strive for ongoing communication with parents and guardians offers support in their role as the primary spiritual nurturer in the life of their student.

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 2018, we will send two teams out into the mission field. One group will travel to Puerto Rico to serve the community through Youthworks. The other group will serve our vulnerable neighbors in the communities surrounding Pittsburgh through the work of The Pittsburgh Project.  BOTH TEAMS ARE FILLED!

ATTENTION Mission Trip Team Members (both Puerto Rico and Pittsburgh Project)  We will hold a mandatory Pre-Field Orientation (PFO) on Sunday, May 6 from noon - 2 p.m.  Lunch will be provided.  This is an important time for members to be together as a team, learn about their serving opportunity and to get questions answered.  Please make every effort to be there!
