Middle School Small Group

Students in grades sixth through eighth gather together in room 101 of the Administrative and Education Building each Sunday from 11:00AM until 12:00PM to study living as a Christian in middle school.

High School Small Group

Students in grades ninth through twelfth gather at the home of the Ralston’s (12417 Tantallon Ct Pineville, NC 28134) each Sunday from 3:30PM until 4:30PM. This group engages in more in-depth Bible study and helps provide a support system for dealing with issues faced by teens.

Youth Group

6th-12th graders are invited to join us on Sunday nights (September-May) for Youth Group from 5:00PM – 6:30PM. We meet in the Multi-Purpose Room in the Administrative and Education Building where we worship together, have announcements, play games, fellowship, and share a snack together. All 6th-12th graders are welcome whether or not your family attends worship services at Harrison Church.

Eighth Grade Confirmation

The eighth grade confirmation class meets in Confirmation Classroom in the Administrative and Education Building at 3:30PM-4:30PM each Sunday starting in December. They are engaged in confirmation study that focuses on our history and heritage as United Methodists, what it means to be a Christian and a United Methodist, and living as a disciple in our world. Confirmation starts in December and finishes in May.

Ski Retreat

Each February 6th-12th graders have the opportunity to join us as we travel to Winterplace Ski Resort in West Virginia. This retreat is a time to connect with one another, ski or tube together, and participate in a theme for the weekend that focuses on what it means to walk with Christ as a teen.

Summer Mission Trip

During the summer we offer an opportunity for 6th-12th graders to travel to an area where we can serve others in various ways. Whether it is working with urban ministries in a large city, repairing homes in rural areas or even traveling to a different country, we offer ways in which teens can be the hands and feet of Christ.

High School Beach Retreat

Students in ninth through twelfth grade are invited to join us as we travel to the coast for an extended weekend. We take time to relax and hang out together as well as continue our in-depth discussions of life as a Christian teen.

Sixth Grade Welcoming Party

As a new school year approaches we send out special invitations to all of our new sixth graders for a pool party and to talk to them about what Harrison Youth Ministry is all about. This event takes place in late August.
