Senior High

Senior High Ministry is a Christ-centered inter-generational community for high school students. Our goal is that every high school student develops faith that is rooted in a knowledge in and experiences with Jesus, family, and the Church. Through large group gatherings, student led worship, relationships with committed and trained adult volunteers, and experiences with the whole community of Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church we are always seeking to create a community that follows Jesus, filled with the Spirit, and seeks the heart of God.

Senior High Wednesday Nights

Wednesdays, September through May | 7:00 – 9:00 pm | MVPC Forum

High School students from many of our area’s high schools come together every Wednesday night during the school year for worship, teaching, games and great music played by our student band.  Small group time is spent with students from your own grade and led by experienced Adult Leaders. All high school students are welcome anytime throughout the school year, no registration required.

Series Archive – Listen to the podcast

This year we are posting recordings of our teaching from Senior High. Our hope is that this will be a resource to help students catch up on teaching they missed, or revisit a topic they want to think more deeply about. We also hope it is a resource for parents that enables them to know what we’re studying at Senior High, and helps them to engage their students in conversations about faith.

Come be an elf at the Harbor House Christmas store on December 15. Harbor House creates a “store” in their building in Oakland with donated gifts offered at greatly reduced prices so the families in their neighborhood have the opportunity to shop for their loved ones for Christmas. On Saturday, December 15, we will take a group of students and parents from MVPC to stock shelves, help shoppers select gifts and wrap them up. 

Register to Serve!

Another way to support the Harbor House Christmas Store is to purchase new items from the HARBOR HOUSE WISHLIST to ship directly to the Harbor House Christmas Store. Let’s stock the shelves in the Harbor House
