PYM Small Groups

The purpose of PYM High School small groups is to connect you with others Christians and to equip you in your growing faith in Christ.  It's on a deeper level than just “floating” in a big group like PYM mid-midweek gatherings can be. Sound interesting?

What are PYM Small Groups?
Small Groups are gatherings throughout the community of Oceanside for high school and middle school students who have committed their life to following Christ. These groups are made up of 6 to 12 students (same age-group and gender) that meet weekly with a caring adult leader.

Small Groups are a perfect place for you to form great friendships with other Christian students your age, build relationships with adult leaders and grow in your faith. Your group will be encouraged to establish accountability with each other, have consistent personal quiet times, get involved in ministry, and participate in service projects.

When and where do they meet?
PYM Small Groups meet in host homes throughout Oceanside on a variety of nights every week. Meeting in homes creates a warm, friendly atmosphere for sharing life together.

What does a typical night look like?
Each PYM Small Group will look different, but a typical night will include something like this: welcome / hang out / Bible study / discussion / prayer.

Being involved in a PYM Small Group will be an awesome time to grow closer to God; what better way to do that than by reading and studying the Bible? Every Small Group will get the chance to choose their study topic from a number of topics available.

Studies could include: prayer, following Jesus, making good decisions, purity, having healthy relationships, studying the Bible, dealing with temptation, living in godly community and more.

What about my leader?
PYM has incredible and trained adult volunteers who have all be screened and are ready to serve and teach high school and middle school students. Our PYM leaders are there to encourage, teach, guide, and help strengthen your walk with Christ. It may turn out to be the most significant relationship of your high school years!
