What is IMPACT! at Markham Woods? 

IMPACT! Youth Group Activities

IMPACT! is our weekly Youth Program at Markham Woods Presbyterian Church.  On Sunday evenings all middle and high school youth are invited to attend this event.  Our Student Center is located on the rear of our campus behind the main church and behind Heathrow Christian Academy.  Here we have all sorts of activities to do such as play pool, air hockey, ping pong, volleyball, or video games.  During the program students have free time to partake in fellowship while doing these activities as well as director lead games/activities during the program.  Also included is a short lesson on the teachings of Jesus and how we can become better disciples of Christ for the future of the church. 

IMPACT! Middle School (4:30-6:30pm)

During middle school IMPACT! the students are allowed some free time upon arrival which leads in to director led games/activities.  After this time, students are presented with a short bible lesson to instill interest and faith in the teachings of the church.

IMPACT! High School (6-8pm)

During high school IMPACT! students are first presented the lesson and then director led games/activities start.  Once these activities are finished there is usually a bit of free time allowing students to partake in the available games as well as in fellowship with one another.

IMPACT! Together

From 6-6:30 during the overlap period, Middle and High School students are given the opportunity to enjoy some food and partake in more free time activities and fellowship with each other.  During the last part of this period, sung worship is led on guitar to praise our God in a casual and prayerful setting in our worship room.  Parents dropping off/picking up students are invited to come in and join us around 6:15 for this time of thanks and praise. 

IMPACT! Mission Statement

IMPACT is a weekly opportunity for students to express and learn about their faith through lessons, discussion, fellowship, and sung worship.  The mission of this program is to lead to a deeper understanding of the church and the teachings of Jesus Christ in such a way that builds an inwardly strong sense of faith that is outwardly focused on sharing and nurturing God's message and love.  Through organized fellowship, activities, and lessons, IMPACT! is an opportunity to become the next generation of the Church and representatives of Christian Faith for the world.
