Montreat High School Conference
Who - Rising ninth graders through graduated seniorsWhat - A Montreat Youth Conference affirms youth in their calling to be and to shape the church of Jesus Christ.Our desire is to help youth come to know and believe that they are the beloved of God in a place where authenticity, community, connection, and God’s truth thrive. We seek to be an inclusive space where each voice can be heard and where each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and where all are embraced.We have spent the last year, and more, in a season of disconnect through our challenges and circumstances. God calls us to be connected in all aspects of life. Through the stories of Mary and Martha, Jacob and Esau, Jeremiah, and many others, we are reminded that we are all inter-connected in God’s intentional actions. Join us as we explore the many ways that we can reconnect to live out God’s call.More information about the event: https://montreat.org/events/myc-22Where - Montreat, NC.

Training is provided.Usher: Usher teams are formed for each month to assist at both services. Ushers welcome all to worship and assist in particular parts of worship, such as handing out bulletins, collection offerings and tending to the sanctuary after worship service.Greeters: Greeters play a vital role in forming a visitor’s first impression of our church and, to some, their first impression of Jesus Christ. A warm smile and friendly demeanor will go a long way in helping our visitors form a favorable opinion of our church. You can volunteer for a week, a month or longer.
ScoutsBoy Scout Troop 419 is chartered and sponsored by KGPC. In Scouting, boys start with their best "right now" selves and grow into their very best "future" selves. It’s fun, hands-on
learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and
prepares them for today – and for life.
If you have a boy between the ages of 11 and 18 who is interested in Scouting,
we’re excited to have him visit our troop! Scouts meet Tuesday evenings
from 6:30 to 8:30 in the church Fellowship Hall. You don’t have to belong
to the church to join. If you have a Scout or potential Scout who is
interested, contact the Scoutmaster:Brian Kanetakanetasrscouts@gmail.com757 647-0949
