Maple Valley Church Youth Engagement Program
The Youth Engagement Program was developed by MVPC deacons and approved at their July 2017 board meeting. The purpose of Youth Engagement is to form a partnership between the deacons and the youth group to serve our congregation and community, focusing on the core ministries the deacons support. These ministries include Vine Maple Place, Maple Valley Food Bank, and Passage Point.
Two high school students who are actively involved in the MVPC youth group will be selected annually by the deacons to carry out assigned duties with the support and guidance of the deacons and youth staff. Student liaisons will work together to promote and coordinate youth engagement in community service activities in the church and local community. Student liaisons are encouraged to attend monthly deacon board meetings, which are held the last Wednesday of each month.
Our first Youth Engagement team, formed on August 1, 2017, consists of Maddie Teddy and Austin Freeman, our student liaisons through July 31, 2018, as well as Joey Freeman and Molly Benjamin, youth engagement deacons, and support from the deacon board and youth ministry team.
