Welcome to Youth Ministry at Pass-A-Grille Beach UCC!


We believe that Youth Ministry calls for passion, patience and faithfulness in the midst of the chaos of adolescence. It is a time of connection, formation, and hopefully, transformation. One of our core values is the responsibility of helping “raise up” this next generation. We provide extensive programming and seek to nurture each youth so they understand that they are all invaluable and irreplaceable.   

We seek to build networks with the church, parents and the wider church community as we invite, inspire, affirm, and seek to equip youth for Christian leadership in their lives and their communtities.    

Our goal is to help youth learn how to live out their faith by the way they care for themselves, their families and the world!  Whether it is through a discussion, game night, Workcamp, or a few hours spent preparing food for the homeless, we believe in being the hands, feet and heart of Jesus.     

We love everybody...REALLY!!


Riptide    4:30 - 5:30 pm

WAVE     6:00 - 7:30 pm

ALL youth from ALL communities are invited and welcome to attend!

Youth are invited to bring their friends—they do not need to attend Pass-A-Grille Beach UCC in order to attend youth group. While many of their families are members of the church, a great number are friends who have been invited to come and continue to do so.

WORKCAMPS (MISSION TRIPS) are a huge part of our youth ministry! Join us on a future trip.


(Senior High)


WAVE is... a group of senior high youth that meets throughout the school year with various activities in between.

WAVE is meant to provide a safe place for all, welcoming and nurturing them in ways they  least expect it and when they think   they least deserve it. There are two retreats every year in addition to the yearly Workcamp.


(Junior High)

Riptide is... designed with the unique needs of today’s middle school youth in mind.  As we all know this can be a dramatic transition in the life of a teenager, as well as a challenge for their families. 

Pass-A-Grille Beach UCC holds as one of its core values the responsibility of helping “raise up” this next generation.


(Young Adults)

Tsunami is... a group of young adults who gather and discuss topics that are relevant to our faith and their life.  We hope to resume  "Think and Drink" in the near future. We also engage in  community service projects during the year.


Tsunami participates in an international Mission Trip every May.
