Children & Youth Ministries

Sunday School

Sundays, 10:30 a.m. (September-May)

Age 5 through 5th grade

Held in the Children's Chapel, we use age-oriented activities to help our young people learn more about the Bible, their faith, and the church community.

Youth Group

Wednesdays,  6:30-8:00 p.m. (September-May)

Grades 6 through high school

This is an excellent opportunity for youth to continue on their faith formation by breaking bread, playing, and praying with God while learning more about what it means to show Christ's love to each other.

Confirmation Program

This program enables our youth and adults to make a formal commitment to the Episcopal Church.

 

In addition to participating in the larger youth group programs, we have youth retreats for more extensive instruction on the faith, as well as time for spiritual formation.

The Confirmation Program also includes worship and service components. Program participants (a.k.a., confirmands) help lead worship services during the Easter season and partake in various service opportunities throughout the year.  This offers our youth a chance to grow spiritually, expand on their talents, and to give back to the community.

Exciting Extras

Throughout the year we offer other exciting events for various ages, such as sleepover lock-ins, pageants, caroling, field trips, and more!

We also provide possibilities for our young people to give back to and explore their community, from aiding with parish clean-up to putting on our annual fundraiser, which is a talent show in the spring that helps to raise money for summer camp scholarships and youth trips.
