HBYouth is open to all 6th — 12th graders of the church. We typically meet every Sunday from Labor Day to Memorial Day from 4-5:30 and every Wednesday night at 6:00. Throughout the year, we have special retreats and outings, including Montreat in the summer and mission trips. Contact Renata DeWees (renata@hbpres.net) if you’d like to learn more!

Weekly Events:

HBYouth Group Meets at Harvey Browne every Sunday from 4 – 5:30 in the Youth Center.

Wednesday nights: Study Hall

  • Stay tuned for more information about Wednesday nights, but I think the tentative plan is to offer musical opportunities for youth during the regular children’s choir times, and to offer an informal “study hall” where youth who do not wish to sing or play bells can be together in the youth space from 6-6:45 engaging in quiet pursuits that could involve chatting, studying, or board games, but not playing video games or using the game tables. We will also have an (optional) youth table at the Wednesday night dinners.

Upcoming Events:

Babysitting Event and Climb Nulu Lock-In

  • Mark your calendars! The youth will host a babysitting event for the children of the church at Harvey Browne on February 9. We will provide childcare for donations and get in service hours while parents get a Valentine’s date or just some peace and quiet, from 5:30-9:30.  After the children are picked up, youth will travel to Climb Nulu for an overnight lock-in. Pick up will be at Climb Nulu at 8:00 am. I will need a couple adult helpers for the babysitting portion. We will use some of our babysitting money to cover the cost of our climbing overnight and will discuss what to do with any additional funds.
