Tyrone Youth Ministry

Tyrone Youth Ministry (TYM) exists to minister to the middle and high school students of TCPC and encourage them to receive Christ Jesus and walk in him by teaching them how the gospel of Jesus Christ applies to their lives, connecting them to other believers, both young and old, in Christian fellowship, and sending them out to serve the church and witness to unbelievers.

Sunday school

Our Sunday morning classes meet from 9:00-10:00 a.m. before the worship service and provide a more in-depth understanding of the Bible. These classes are meant to spark an interest in the Bible and in God.come February we’ll start a new series called “Who Is God?” The junior high class is continuing through their series exploring the “golden chain” of salvation, from election to glorification.

Wednesday nights

Our large group gathering meets on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30 p.m. for a time of fellowship, games, worship, discipleship, and teaching. This is a great opportunity for the youth to get to know each other better and to hear how the Bible applies directly to their lives. Update for January 2022:  As has been announced, there will not be a meal provided beforehand this semester. TYM will begin a new mini-series called “For Such a Time As This” (based on Esther 4:14) where we explore how God uses his people to accomplish his will during difficult seasons. Contact Pastor David or check out the church calendar for more information.
