Youth Ministry

The Youth of Nardin Park are cherished deeply by all the generations of our church. Our mission; Do Good, Show Love is the center of our Youth Group.

  • Youth Group: We meet weekly on Sundays, 5 to 7 pm in Park Place!
  • Missions: In recent years, we have participated in the Appalachia Service Project, Henderson Settlement, and local outreach missions. Each summer there will be a Jr. High Mission Week. We sleep at the church and serve locally. For Sr. High, we participate in a week-long mission across the country to help the community.
  • Off-Campus Events: Occasionally, we will have off-campus events! These events include Movie Nights at the theater, Scavenger Hunts + serving locally. In order to participate in off-campus events, each youth attending will need to have their paperwork turned in (just in case of an emergency).
  • Paperwork: Please fill out the following Google Forms for your active youth member!

2022 Scholarship Opportunities!

A message from our Youth Director, Kristen Trachet

Hi there! I am so blessed to be able to work with such wonderful youth. Apart from being a great group, each individual that comes here, brings a sense of greater peace and passion to our space. We are thankful to have unending support from our congregation, Leadership team, and staff. Each week I walk into the Youth Room I am filled with joy and peace as I am able to share such a special friendship with each of the awesome humans that are a part of NPYG. I continue to learn and grow in my faith journey as we continue to grow as a group. Each time we meet, I am taught new things by our students. Nardin Park Youth Group is a safe place for teens + all humans; no matter their background, race, sexual orientation, or gender identity. You matter, and we welcome you.


A note about Covid: updated September 2, 2021

As the whirlwind of Covid continues to sweep through our nation, we will continue to be cautious and in tune with up-to-date safety precautions. Unfortunately, this means that we may have to postpone events or wait to begin new programming until it is safe to do so. We will continue to meet outdoors as much as possible. If inside, we will be masked. These past 18 months have brought unprecedented times of endurance and blind faith. I am currently working on fall and winter programming and what that will look like. I am hopeful for what is to come. I thank each of you and your families for understanding our caution in this situation. I pray for a time we can all join together in praise and thanks, I pray for you and your families as we all journey through this together.

ALL youth are welcome! If you have any questions about youth ministry contact Kristen Trachet at kristen.npchurch@gmail.com!
