 Here at Gulf Breeze Presbyterian Church we value our children and youth!

 

Youth are actively involved in worship and service projects across Gulf Breeze Presbyterian Church.

 

Our vision is that each student would have a vibrant, healthy, and abiding faith in Jesus Christ. That students would be able to Connect, Relate, Grow, and Engage both God and others in the midst of Community. 

Children Ages 4-9:

  • Imitate religious behavior

  • Ask faith based questions

  • Begin to express faith based language     

 

​​​By the time a child is 9 years old a basic moral foundation is formed.

More than 80% of today's children will never set foot in the church. This is why outreach is vital. Why programs like Youth Group , Navigator Kidz Club, Vacation Bible School, and Sunday are essential to youth and children’s spiritual development. 

Children Ages 8-12:     

  • Begin to understand faith stories

  • Engage in Discipleship & Service 

  Studies from Fuller Seminary found in the book "Growing Young", that students are statistically less likely to graduate from their faith if a student is connected to God, their peers, and 5 adults of the Church.
