High School Youth
CREW: Community, Risk, Experience, Worship
Super Wednesday CREW | 5:30-8:30 pm
Location: Gym and The Den
Start off in the gym with all youth for games, energizers and more! As you move into the Den, you will have time to snack, check in with each other on how life is going, play games, discuss life and faith with other high school students and participate in new activities that stretch us to serve beyond the walls of St. Andrew and into our community.
High School Sunday School | 9:30-10:20am
Location: The Cave
This is the place for high school students to hang out with friends, engage in discussion about the joys and struggles of being a teenager, and explore what it means to have faith in God in today’s world. This semester we will be studying the series “The Story of God,” narrated by Morgan Freeman. We will explore how the series challenges and invites us to explore our own faith journeys as Morgan Freeman travels to find God in the modern world.
Confirmation classes typically begin during the 8th grade school year for youth, but are open to any youth who are exploring their faith, their place in church and in the world. Classes study important topics and elements of faith, elements of the Presbyterian Church and what it means to be Presbyterian in today’s world. Confirmation class concludes in the spring with students writing their faith statements, presenting them to session and their families, and being confirmed in the church in May. For information regarding the class, please contact Brandi (Brandi@saint-andrew.com).
