Youth (grades 6-12)
This year, we will be revamping our Sunday morning programs for middle and high school students. We are integrating our Acolyte, Outreach, and Sunday School experiences, so middle and high school students can get more out of the central experiences of church: worship and service.
Three Sundays a month, students will gather in Neve Hall with the Rev. Sarah and other teachers to think about different elements of the service, what they mean, and how they apply to our lives. Why do we wear what we do? Why do we say confession? How does the Eucharist change my life? No question is too small or large for us to tackle.
One Sunday a month, the youth will be at work in the outreach pantry, getting bags packed for our Wednesday food pantry and doing other important work for our community. Audi Barlow, our youth minister is leading this effort and working with Peggy Williams, our outreach volunteer coordinator.
We are truly excited at this new beginning and hope you will help us make this program successful by regularly bringing your middle and high school students to church. We’ll even have snacks for them!
