Youth Ministry
PHYouth
PHYouth is the middle and high school ministry of Pleasant Hill UMC. We meet on Sundays from 5:00-7:00PM for PHYouth.  For a “standard” PHYouth meeting, we have our evening broken up into 4 30minute sections:
5-5:30 – Dinner in the Fellowship Hall
5:30-6 – Game/Icebreaker/Intro
6-6:30 – Lesson
6:30-7 – Discipleship groups 
Our current theme for PHYouth sessions is Discipleship.  We are looking at what it means to be a disciple and what it actually is that disciples do (ex: forgive, love, show Christ, etc).  We discuss this topic as a large group and then break out into small groups to get a more intimate conversation on the topics presented that night.
Retreats and Mission Trips
 
Our youth ministry has 3 major trips that we take each year.  In November the youth go on our Fall Retreat, which is lead by our youth staff, for a weekend in the mountains.  Typically, this retreat is held at either Asbury Hills or Look Up Lodge.  This upcoming June 7-12 we head up to Lookup Lodge in Traveler’s Rest for a week.  This retreat is lead by the LookUp Lodge staff, but we (the PHYouth Staff) are there with the students to take part in all of the activities and chapels with the students.  July 18-25 our students will take part in one of two Salkehatchie Work Camps.  The choices are North Strand and Columbia Salkehatchie.  Students must be 14 years of age before the start of the camp to participate!  Sign up at www.salkehatchie.org.
