Youth Group is available for young people between 6th and 12th grades. We met on Sunday afternoons (6th-7th grades from 4:00-5:30; 8th-12th graders from 5:00-6:30). All sessions invite youth to explore the Christian faith, including confirmation preparation for older youth. Our program is structured by the ancient process of listening – experience – reflection to help young people develop their own understanding of God’s presence in their lives and the world around them. We use Scripture, popular culture, art, physical activity, fun and prayer to explore our spirituality and to build community.

Regular Sunday sessions focus on a core set of topics from the program Journey to Adulthood. we laugh a lot; we learn a lot. Every effort is made to keep the process experiential, with a hands-on and hearts-on focus.

Each semester we engage in a number of different service projects, join with the other youth across the diocese in activities and leave plenty of time for physical activity, fun and fellowship. Youth Group takes seriously the need to deal with what is real for young people, to honor questions and to place a scriptural, spiritual and liturgical frame around each one of those experiences.
