Our youth represent not only the future of our church community, but also the present. Our youth often collect the offering, read scripture during worship, and serve on the Session (the governing body of our church).


Sunday School meets on Sunday mornings during the school year.

9:45am Room 201: grades 6 -12. Sunday School provides an opportunity for our young people to explore different topics about God, the Bible and faith.


Our youth are part of a combined youth group called the PresbyBYG: a partnership between the groups from Mountain Brook, Oakmont, Southminster, and Shades Valley Presbyterian Churches who meet weekly for service and fellowship on Sunday evenings from 5-7pm.  The group meets at each partner church throughout the year - check with Youth Director Emily Burt ( to find out where they are this month.


High School students travel each summer for the Montreat Youth Conference in Montreat, North Carolina. Middle School students go to the Montreat Middle School Conference at Maryville College in Tennessee. The youth also attend local Presbytery retreats, serve on the Presbytery Youth Council, and have mission experiences.
