Second Presbyterian Youth (SPY)
6th Grade – 12th Grade
A set-apart time for sixth-twelfth graders that offers with fun, fellowship and discipleship. God’s love is shared with others through acts of service and a heart of discipleship. SPY typically meets at the church, in homes, and other various locations. During this pandemic season, we’ll have a mix of online and in-person gatherings (this is the hope and we appreciate our families being so gracious in our flexibility as we figure out month-to-month what is safest and best for our church family). Contact Sharon Howard at (501) 227-0000 for more information.
Child Protection Policy
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” Psalm 122:1
We believe that we are called by God to be the body of Christ in our community and that it is our responsibility to create safe and supportive environments for all children, youth, and at-risk adults participating in the activities and programs of Second Presbyterian Church. Our policies and guidelines for the protection of children, youth, and at-risk adults have been named “The Miriam Project” – in the spirit of Miriam, the sister of Moses, who is remembered for her protection of the baby Moses and her guidance as he grew to become one of God’s great leaders.
As a church, through the promises we make at each baptism, we have accepted responsibility to provide sage and nurturing environments for children of all ages. In the policies outlined in the Miriam Project we have taken positive steps to provide as safe an environment as possible for the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our children, youth, and at-risk adults.
All staff members and volunteers (18 years and older) who wish to minister with our children, youth, and at-risk adults on a regular basis must complete the following requirements:
- Be a member of Second Presbyterian Church
- Complete an Information Form and sign a Covenant
- Agree to a confidential criminal background check
- Agree to adhere to the conduct required in the Miriam Project
Reserve Youth Building
“Where there’s always room for you!”
Our youth building is used by a variety of groups from those participating in Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, to visiting youth groups, to those hosting special meetings or parties. This building is equipped with a large “great room,” a full kitchen, laundry room, 5 showers, 3 bathrooms, numerous classrooms, and a game room.
As a part of this process, you will be asked to read and sign our Building Use Policy and complete the Application for Use of Church Facilities, adopted in 2016. You will also need to provide a Certificate of Insurance. Certain fees may apply. We will contact you to review and confirm your request. Usage of the youth building is not guaranteed until we have confirmed your request.
Our building requests are honored on a first-come, first-served basis and our summers fill up quickly so please reserve early!
