YOUTH

— Belonging. Believing. Becoming.

Our Youth Ministry is unique. Students ages 6th to 12th grade experience a God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation. Through this, our students learn how to connect with God, one another, and within their own hearts. We strive to help each student find their place as we walk alongside them in their faith journey.

Hope on the way youth team

 

Our youth are leading the way for Advent. Youth will meet weekly on Zoom to prepare a special project to help share the light of Advent this year. Youth will help with two things: 1) recording daily scripture readings for the congregation and 2) creating an Advent calendar of service and parking activities to shine their light with others.
 When: First meeting is this Sunday 5:00 pm (team will determine best day and time going forward.)

Hope on the Way: Sharing the light of Advent

Youth are invited to a sacred time of sharing the light of Advent. Youth who register will receive a special bag with a Paschal candle (similar to the paschal candle lit in our sanctuary), a sacred cloth and an Advent calendar. Each day, the calendar has unique things that we can do for others to share our light and brighten this season of Advent for the world. On Sunday nights, we will gather for 5 minutes of prayer (on Zoom) to share how we have been light to others with our Advent calendar.
