As our youth learn about faith and love in a Sunday school setting, we work to expand those horizons in our monthly youth group activities. Open to grades 3rd through 6th, our youth group strives to be an positive force of love in our local community.
Working on an alternating schedule, one month we focus on a fun activity with the kids (such as a lock-in, bowling, laser tag, and more) while the next month we focus on putting faith into action through volunteering in the community. Learning about the needs in our surrounding area, our kids have helped serve meals to the less fortunate, helped stock shelves at a local food assistance organization, and raised funds for causes they care about. This alternating schedule helps our youth learn about the needs of others outside of our church walls while still having fun!
Additionally, on the months where there are five Sundays, our youth group takes leadership of the worship service on the fifth Sunday of the month. From picking out the songs to reading scripture and the liturgy, our children learn public speaking skills as we encourage them to be leaders in our faith community.
