Mt. Sylvan Youth

Mt. Sylvan Youth is a community of 6th through 12th grade students from many different schools around Durham. 
Through community, service, and study, we come to know the God who made us, how to follow Him faithfully,
and how to be light in the world as we are transformed by the Holy Spirit. 
Our virtual "zoom" doors are always open, and we welcome any any students in the community to come join us for an evening!

  • SuNday Night Youth Gathering

    Mt. Sylvan Youth meets on zoom every Sunday night at 6:30.  We catch up on each other's lives, share games and jokes, and then do a topical study together.  So far in 2020, we have done series on busyness and rest, prayer, and friendship.  It's an awesome way to anchor your week, share what's on your heart and mind, and get to know a supportive community that really cares.

  • Youth Missions

    Our students value The Great Commission(Matthew 28:19-20) and their commitments to our community and the world. We partner with the church to help with Urban Ministries of Durham (Lunch every 4th Sunday), Families Moving Forward, Stop Hunger Now, and our summer mission trip to Nashville with Student Living a Mission(SLAM).

  • social media & Messaging

    Mt. Sylvan Youth has an active and vibrant presence on social media. It's often the quickest way to learn about youth news, and to see pictures from our events.

    Please sign up to receive updates via Remind - it's the primary way we share information about upcoming meetings and events! You can sign up at the link below.

  • Events & Registration

    Throughout the school year, we offer chances for our students to take some time away from the pressures of their daily lives. Sometimes, it's a quick night out to a haunted forest, or even a full weekend away at Pilgrimage or Lake Junaluska in the summer!

    Students are able to pay for events through cash, check, credit/debit card, or through use of Pumpkin Patch credits earned by working at the Pumpkin Patch every September/October.

    Please check back for registrations periodically.
