High School Youth
Led by our Director of Families with Children, along with parent volunteers, kids engage in Bible based topics about growing up, social justice and service in a safe and supportive group. Fun games and activities are part of each Wednesday night. There are service projects and outings throughout the year, including preparing and serving a meal at a shelter, fixing bikes for Bikes 4 Kids, or collecting gifts for the Christmas Giving Tree. At this age, children also have the opportunity to acolyte and ring the church bell.
The highlight of the year is the Spring retreat, at a nearby YMCA camp. There are games, crafts, snacks, campfire s’mores, and a hilarious performance by the youth of the Perils of Paul or the Parables of Jesus.
Sign up to volunteer as a parent or bring snacks
