WPC Youth Outreach
If ever the church is to flourish again, one must begin by instructing the young. — Martin Luther
The WPC Youth Ministry supports the spiritual and social development of the Church youth from grade six through high school graduation.
For a youth ministry to be biblical, it needs to follow the model in 2 Timothy 3:16-17—students being mentored for character, instructed in doctrine, and equipped for every good work so that they will engage in effective ministry.
The youth leaders are there to model, mentor, and equip young ministers in Christ-like character, sound doctrine, and effective methods to reach lost peers and make disciples of their own (Matthew 28:18-20).
The youth engage in a variety of activities intended to foster deeper connections to both their peers and their faith in Christ. Weekly bible study, Monthly events with active participation as a group, and Summer Mission Trips can be found on the youth calendar.
The youth plan requires support from the congregation. Without your support we can not grow and strengthen the ministry.

Mystery Bus Bible Study (MBBS)
Wednesday nights, during the Wimberley school year, the youth come together for bible study. They get on the bus without knowing where they will be going and what they are having for dinner.
Sunday Afternoon Activities
The third Sunday of the month the youth gather in fellowship. The activities are selected by the youth group’s interests. The goal is to give youth a safe, fun Christian environment they feel comfortable inviting friends too.
Youth are encouraged to participate in Sunday worship service. Five Sundays a year the youth lead worship in ushering and scripture reading.
Graduating high school is a key point in a Christian’s life. For the first time they face the world with adult eyes and the world sees them as adults. This is the youth ministry’s last opportunity to ensure they are prepared.
- 1:1 Dinner and Conversation – Youth leaders take seniors and juniors out to dinner for conversations about life, school, future plans, and their faith.
- Bible Study Leadership – Seniors are encouraged to lead MBBS for two or more Wednesday nights.
- Graduation Send-off – The congregation recognizes the graduating seniors with prayers, blessings, gifts and study bibles
- First Year Check-ins – Youth leaders call, visit seniors in the Fall after graduation to ensure they are in good spirits, have a home church or regular bible study, and report back any needs to the congregation.
