Middle School and High School Youth

Super Wednesday (all youth), 5:30-7:30pm
Location: Gym and The Den
Come join our middle school and high school students as we play, share and engage in conversations, discussion and lessons that connect us to each other and the world around us, through the lens of the faith we have and/or are seeking.
Join all the youth in the gym at 5:30 for games, energizers and more! At 6:30, we move to the Den for time to explore our faith in terms of our own questions, doubts and within the context of current events.

Extended High School Time, 7:30pm-8:30pm
Join us each Wednesday after our regular youth time for an extra hour of time together. We talk, learn, discuss and play about topics that are close to our experiences and delve into questions we have about life as teenagers and what life can look like after high school.

Sunday Morning

Youth Choir, 9:00-9:40am
Location: Ms. Hindman’s Room

Youth Sunday School, 9:30-10:20 am
Location: The Den
Come hang out each Sunday morning as the class is taught by different teachers. This spring we are discussing and learning about key questions asked by youth in the Presbyterian faith, such as “why do we worship” or “what’s the point of getting baptized?” Each week will offer discussion and reflection to help youth grow in their own faith.

Confirmation Class, 9:30-10:20 am
Location: Room 200
Students, typically in 8th grade, who are ready to study and make a commitment to their faith, begin the process with our year-long confirmation class. The class studies key elements of the Christian faith, Presbyterian beliefs and polity and explores the Bible in order for youth to create their own faith statements. By the end of the school year, students will share their faith statements and join the church on Confirmation Sunday.

Youth Sunday, February 25
One of the best ways our youth share in our life together, and know that they belong and are making a difference, is the opportunity for them to lead in worship. Our youth will lead us in worship on Sunday, February 25th. Please come worship under their leadership and let them know we stand with them as they serve God and our congregation. We hope to see you there!
