The Sheppards and Lapsley Presbyterian Youth Council (SLPYC) is a partnership of youth and adult leaders that fosters Christian community through programs and events year-round. Youth who serve must be high-school juniors or seniors, and they may apply in the spring preceding each school year. Adult members serve for a three-year term.
Leadership training is provided to each member as an investment in his or her capacity to lead in the local church. As part of their service, the SLPYC plans and leads two or more retreats per school year (at least one per fall and spring) for youth across the presbytery. See the schedule below, and click on the links for fliers and registration forms.
