Youth Ministry

Grades 6 – 12

We have a vibrant and fun youth ministry at Spring Hill Presbyterian. From mission trips to retreats to youth conferences at Montreat, and Sunday night Youth Group, we are an active, fun, faith-based ministry that is done with (not for) our youth. We hope that you will join us on Sunday mornings and evenings! We are an open and welcoming group, so please bring friends! If you would like to join our group or just want to know a little more about us, contact Anna Fulmer.
