Breakfast Club is our Sunday morning educational program for 6th – 8th grade youth. Middle Schoolers start in the first service, then are invited to the Youth Café. Participants can grab something to eat and catch up with friends before the group begins their discussion. Breakfast Club offers a relational, discussion-based format that focuses on the meaning behind scripture texts and applies them to modern life.
Confirmation at PCCT is a nine-month program of learning, service, and participation in the worshipping life of our congregation. Participants typically are in the ninth grade and attend Sunday morning classes (10:30-11:45 a.m., two or three times per month), complete a total of 10 hours of service on church related projects, attend three retreats, complete a worship journal and write a statement of faith at the end of the year. The confirmation program is designed to: Prepare young people to become adult members of the church; enable them to make a public profession of faith; and invite them to complete the vows made by their parents at the time of their baptisms. Additional information can be found on the Confirmation page.
Just for 6th – 8th graders, this group meets about twice a month for fun, inspiration and dinner. Past events include an A-Z Scavenger Hunt in downtown Madison, Fast Food Frenzy, and Pack the Place night with the world's largest ice cream sundae. Check out the Middle School Youth Fellowship Page for information on upcoming events.

Each year, PCCT teens plan a week-long summer mission trip. In late June 2015, our Youth Mission Trip group traveled to Larimer County, Colorado where they helped those whose properties were devastated by flooding in September 2013. In previous years, teens have traveled to West Virginia, Missouri, East Texas, South Dakota, New Orleans and other locations. This past summer we did disaster recovery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Many homes were damaged during the 2015 flooding. Our team was hosted by the First Presbyterian church of Myrtle Beach in conjunction with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. In 2017, our group headed to Central Washington to help with disaster recovery in the aftermath of 2014 and 2015 fires.
Youth are invited to participate in many of the mission and outreach opportunities that PCCT supports, including Family Promise, Bridges, Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Pumpkin Patch and many more. See the Mission & Outreach page for more information.
Musical opportunities for teens include the Manna Band and Teen Bells. More information can be found on the Youth Music page.
