Children, Youth & Families
Southport Presbyterian Church is committed to encouraging participation in worship services by people of all ages, including serving as acolytes, reading scripture and sharing musical talents.
We have a children’s message during worship and then children are dismissed for Sunday School. We have activity bags to keep the younger children busy until the children’s message.
A bright, spacious activity area is available for babies and toddlers during Sunday worship. Children are cared for by member volunteers who have been through a background check through Safe Gatherings.
Sunday School is offered for all children ages PreK and up. We currently have one class for children PreK through 4th grade and another class for youth grades 5 –middle school.
A Confirmation class for youth to explore personal faith and church commitment is offered by Pastor Joanna.
Easter Festival is held each year featuring an Easter Egg Hunt, Easter crafts, snacks, and a story about the meaning of Easter. This is generally held the Saturday before Palm Sunday.
Vacation Bible School
We offer a week long VBS each summer. The theme for summer 2023 is Hero Hotline – Called Together to Serve God!
We periodically offer opportunities for fellowship such as movie nights and game nights.
In addition, this ministry provides opportunities for mission outreach activities and camps.
Montreat Youth Conference
We have taken high school youth to the Montreat Youth Conference in western NC. For more information, contact Pastor Joanna Hipp.
