Got questions? We have answers.
Do I need to be a church member?
Nope! We welcome students of any and every background at all of our activities, including trips!
Do I pay a different price as a church member/non-member?
No. Members and non-members pay the same price for all of our trips and events. Scholarships are available for trips and events that are mission or spiritual-growth based. If money is ever a question, please reach out to use about scholarships!
Do I have to sign up to come to youth group?
No sign up required! Just show up!
Do I need to sign up ahead of time for special events?
We are very appreciative of people who sign up ahead of time, allowing us to better prepare for events. However, it is not required. If you are planning to attend a trip, advance registration is necessary.
What is the trip cancellation policy?
Refunds are dependent upon the trip and circumstances of cancellation. Contact us as soon as possible if you are not able to attend and have already paid a deposit.
Who do I make a check out to?
Please make checks out to Village Presbyterian Church.
Can I pay with a credit card?
Yes! We also accept checks and cash.
Where do I drop off forms?
So many options! Forms can be dropped off at the Reception Desk located at the North or South entrances of the church, or directly in the Youth Office. They can also be mailed to Village Presbyterian Church (Attn. Youth) 6641 Mission Road, Prairie Village, KS 66208.
We’re new to Village, what should my student come to first?
For starters, welcome! We’re excited you’re interested in youth life here at Village. You are invited and welcome to attend any youth events regardless of prior experience. However, some of our programs are specifically designed to be easy access points for our newcomers. The first youth group of each month (GPS for middle school and SNL for high school) are great nights to come for the first time. For middle school students, “Twosdays” (our after-school program on Tuesdays form 4:00-5:30PM) is also a great intro to our youth programming on any week! Come, hang out, eat some food, and get to know some fellow KC youth. Check out our middle school programs here and high school programs here.
Where are the youth forms?
Oh, so many places. You can find them online here. You can also find them by the Reception Desk at the South entrance of the church, outside the Youth Office, or in the Youth Loft.
Who runs the youth events?
Our youth events are run by Zach Walker, Youth Pastor, and Jenna Soltys, Associate Youth Director. Part-time staff also include Kevin Dolan, Youth Band Director, and Grace Pickell, our year-long intern. We also rely on, and are extremely appreciative of, the help of volunteers who assist in making all of our programming and event possible!
How do I volunteer?
Thank you so much for asking! We have volunteer opportunities in a variety of capacities from a lot, to a little personal interaction with students. If you’re interested in volunteering, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a youth staff member will contact you!
What if I’m an adult that wants to go on a trip?
First off, thank you! We are always in need of adult volunteers to help chaperone our trips! Our summer trips are free for adults. For our annual Ski Trip, adults go for half price (and cheaper if you’re interested in going as a non-skiing adult). Currently, adults pay the same price as students for our Dominican Republic Mission Trip. Email us at email@example.com to learn more!
