CREDO Confirmation Class

CREDOCREDO is a discipleship program available to all youth who will be entering grades eight through twelve.  CREDO seeks to engage youth in discovering what it means to be a follower of and profess faith in Jesus Christ as well as becoming a member of God's church.  The format is based on small group mentoring, a web based-curriculum, families, worship, and missional engagement.  It is our hope and prayer that youth who participate in this program, from September through May, will develop a better understanding of their faith in Jesus and the beauty found in being connected to a local church. Youth who complete the CREDO class will be commissioned as members of Westminster Presbyterian Church.

From www.thephiladelphiaproject.com 

"The Philadelphia Project is a Christian non-profit organization committed to the holistic development of the neighboring community in partnership with the local church...We seek to accomplish our mission through the creation of a vibrant, engaging, and safe community center as well as providing service opportunities caring for the homes of the elderly, poor, single-parent and those plagued by hardships. The Philadelphia Project offers a unique and powerful service and mission trip for youth groups. We challenge youth to serve whole-heartedly in our community and to think critically about how God’s Word speaks to social and spiritual issues. Our prayer is that God uses these experiences to make an eternal impact on youth and those they serve, as well as a visible impact offering hope and restoration to our community...We believe in relationships: 100% of the service your youth are involved in is a direct result of the continued ministry of Mount Airy Presbyterian Church (PCUSA). We are committed to building meaningful relationships with those in need in order to accomplish many different Christ-centered goals. Philadelphia is our home and we serve here all year long."
