...existing to know Jesus and make Him known...
At Walla Walla Pres, we try to be real, fun, intentional, relevant, and growing. We want everyone who runs into us to feel welcomed and valued... wherever they are in their lives and their walk with the Lord. Sometimes we do that, other times we miss the goal; but that's ok... we aren't expected to be perfect!

Current Sunday Curriculum
Our youth ministry uses The Gospel Project curriculum by Lifeway for Sunday morning lessons. This is a Christ-centered curriculum that focuses on introducing youth to Christ in every lesson. We are currently working our way through the story of God in a chronological manner. If you would like to know more or want to explore other resources from The Gospel Project you can click this link to go directly to their website. Their website also includes training videos for teachers and parents alike on how to better engage students about their faith outside of the Sunday morning setting.Youth Groups
Foundations Youth Group
Sundays @ 5:00 - 7:00 PM | Click HERE for Current Curriculum
Middle and high school students are invited to join us on Sunday evenings for Foundations, our youth group here at WWPC. Cornerstone is our middle school program as we build the foundation of their lives on Christ and the Word of God and our high school is referred to as Frameworks as we start to build the structure of their “homes” they will live in the rest of their lives. These are incomplete on purpose because we understand that we are still not complete in our growth and walk with Christ when we leave high school and enter the “real” world but rather, continue to remodel and repair our “homes” over the course of our lives.
NEW: Dinner provided
High School Girl's Bible Study
Tuesdays @ 5:30 - 6:30 PM | 323 E Birch Street, Apt 2 | Click HERE for Curriculum
If you are in high school and are looking to connect with some of your peers, we have a wonderful opportunity for you to join a group of like-minded young women and grow your faith in Christ at the same time. Tuesday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm, Vanessa Curry and Angel Saldana are hosting a girls Bible study where everyone is invited to open up about questions they have, dig deeper in the scripture and find a place to feel welcomed and accepted.
Youth Bible Study (during WFB)
Wednesdays @ 6:15 PM
If you are in middle school or are unable to attend the high school groups on Tuesday nights, join us on Wednesdays for WFB (Wednesdays at First & Birch) for dinner at 5:30pm followed by Bible study form 6-7:15pm. We will work our way through the Bible as well as go through the Alpha series. Our goal is to help all students with any level of background in the church establish and build a foundational understanding of the Bible.
