The mission of our Next Generation ministry is to point our covenant children from birth to the hope found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We desire to come alongside parents as they seek to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Safe, compassionate, Christ-exalting care for our children is a top priority for Decatur Presbyterian.

Our children have classes from 9:30-10:15 AM. These classes are divided by age.
Midweek ministries begin at 6:00 PM after a church family meal. Our Wednesday nights include opportunities to worship the Lord in children’s choirs, to learn the tenets of the faith through developmentally appropriate teaching, as well as a once monthly focus on missions around the world.
Special events for our children range from game days to movie nights to parents’ night out. We desire to provide opportunities for fellowship outside of normal church services for our children to grow in love for one another. Once per semester our children are given the opportunity to support a local Christian ministry through service projects. For more information about upcoming events, please see our worship guide or on the calendar.
DPC’s Student Ministry seeks to teach, encourage and care for the youth of our church and community in grades 6-12 with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our Sunday morning classes last from 9:30-10:15 AM. Middle school and high school students begin together with announcements and prayer, and then divide into two separate groups for the lesson.
Our Wednesday night youth ministries begin at 6:00 PM. They usually include a game to break the ice and get everyone engaged, followed by announcements and a song. The middle school and high school students then break into different groups for the teaching time.
We also have regular service opportunities and do special events and trips. More information about upcoming events can be found in our worship guide or on the calendar.
