Pine Lake Youth exists to find & follow Jesus together.

Our hope is that Pine Lake Youth would be a place where you can:

  • Be yourself.
  • Belong to something bigger. 
  • Become part of bringing heaven to earth.

Throughout the school year, we have two consistent gatherings for middle school and high school students:

  Tuesdays, 6:00-8:00pm  
We begin with dinner at 6pm with an evening that includes connection time, worship, teaching, and breakout groups specifically designed for middle school and high school students.

  Sunday Worship, 10:00am  
Come join Pine Lake Youth in the front three rows!

Upcoming Youth Gatherings

Events, Trips & Discipleship


Confirmation is a 7-month discipleship experience, designed for students 8th grade and up, taking a deep dive into Scripture. You’ll be paired up with a mentor to explore deep questions of life and faith with monthly gatherings for group teaching. The year is capped off with Confirmation Sunday, in early June, to celebrate the ways in which God has been at work in your life.

Community Meal Packaging Event

Pine Lake Covenant Church Community Meal Packaging Event

Through our partnership with Children of the Nations, students—alongside their families—have the opportunity to package meals for children in Sierra Leone. This takes place in early December in the gym at PLCC, where multiple assembly lines produce thousands of meals in only a few hours! It’s a great way to serve alongside others to make a deep impact! See it in action!

Capernaum's Got Talent

PLCC has a longstanding partnership with YoungLife Capernaum, a ministry that serves students with special needs and their families across Sammamish, Issaquah, Bellevue, and Redmond. This evening event is one of the highlights of the year, where students put their skills on display during a talent show… a great way to come together with the opportunity to serve in multiple ways throughout the evening!

Campbell Farm

Campbell Farm is the Middle School highlight of the summer! Each summer, PLY heads to the Yakama nation on an incredible three-day discipleship trip in partnership with “The Campbell Farm.” Campbell Farm is a community and retreat center in Wapato, WA, where “all are welcome to come and sit at Christ’s table.” The farm supports the greater community of those living on the Yakama reservation; hosting services, retreats, women’s support groups, day camps for kids, and a meeting place for various other support groups. This trip includes immersive cross-cultural learning experiences and plenty of summer fun, including the famous cliff jumping and floating down the Yakima River!

Global 6K for Water

Pine Lake Covenant Church Global 6K

Each year, PLCC partners with Covenant Kids Congo to participate in the Global 6K, providing clean water for communities in the D.R. Congo! Why 6 kilometers? Because 6K is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water – water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. In fundraising for this event, we empower vulnerable children and families with the provision of lasting clean water. This is an all-family (and dogs!) event! Together we walk, stroll, run and end our time celebrating at the Sammamish commons enjoying the Rig-a-Palooza activities: food trucks, prizes, treats, bounce houses, balloon artist and face painting! See it in action!

This event takes place every other year during the summer, and is DEFINITELY a highlight of your high school experience with Pine Lake Youth. Unite is a regional gathering alongside thousands of other students from across the west coast for a week packed with adventure, powerful worship and teaching, and is always in an exceptional location. Contact Pastor Mark if you’re interested in being part of the trip!
