Youth Fellowship

Youth Fellowship usually meets on Sunday afternoons at 4pm in the Youth Lounge (Rooms 72/74) on the lower level of the Parish House.  Activities include games of all kinds, mission work, lock-ins, discussions and more. Take a look of our schedule this year for all the fun activities planned. We have a group of adult leaders who offer their time and energy to lead our youth in fellowship each Sunday.

There are two weekend retreats scheduled this year. Refreshing Mountain is the fall retreat full of new experiences and team building activities. Camp Spears is the winter retreat that provides an opportunity for the youth to give back and make stronger relationships.

Summer Youth Programs

Each summer, our youth have opportunities to be part of experiences away from Abington.  Our youth can spend a week either doing mission work close by or far away or attending a youth conference.  Recent trips have taken our youth to Maine, Baltimore, Montreat and Appalachia.
