Our mission is to help youth to know God’s love for themselves and share His love with others. The Presbyterian Church of Barrington provides youth and families opportunities to grow in their faith through programming based in Biblical teachings, fellowship and service.
PCB offers youth groups for both middle school and high school aged youth. Activities include a wide range of events from team building opportunities, service opportunities, Bible studies, fun classes and much more.
The Presbyterian Church of Barrington holds an yearly confirmation class for 8th grade students. Confirmation is a time for youth to learn more in depth about God, Scripture, the Presbyterian Church, spiritual life and faith. Upon completion of the confirmation class and other requirements students will be received by the church during confirmation Sunday in September following their 8th grade year.
Youth Mission Trip
Every summer the high school youth embark on a week-long mission trip. The youth work side by side with adult volunteers on a mission project often involving construction type work. In addition, the youth participate in Bible studies and recreational opportunities.
2018 Youth Mission trip to Puerto Rico – June 9-16
Every mission trip in which the PCB youth participates is life changing, heartwarming, and makes a huge difference in the lives of those in need across the country. However, this June we are taking it to the next level. Flying down to the First Presbyterian Church in Añasco, Puerto Rico, we will be rebuilding and repairing the recent devastation from Hurricane Maria. The congregation and administration at the 115 year old church have been praying for help as FEMA and insurance companies are struggling to keep up with the extensive damage across the island. Feeling inspired and determined to come to the aid of our sister church across the ocean, PCB’s youth needs YOUR help to raise enough funds to make this trip the success story our new friends have been praying for.
Please consider participating in these upcoming events to support PCB’s Youth Mission Trip and stay tuned for additional information! Lauren Carder – 11th grade
