Youth & Young Adult


We kickoff the year on the second Sunday in September, with Sunday School and a parent open house.

For general questions or to join, contact Patrick Allred or Ken Clark.

 

Sundays

From 8:45-9:45am, Children & Middle School Youth take part in active Sunday School classes at the Parish House.  Each week we submerge into our faith journey through community, teaching and discussion, and music as a prime component.

After Sunday School, we worship together at the Church on the Green at 10am. Childcare for infants through age 8 is available Sunday mornings at Howard House, adjacent to the Sanctuary.

Following worship, at 12:30pm, High School Youth Group meets at the Parish House for food, friends, and faith stories.  Open to all High School students! Contact Vern Verhoef.

Acolytes

Being an acolyte provides teens in grades 8-12 with an opportunity to fully participate in worship.  Our Acolytes assist at the 10am worship service, carrying the light of Christ into the Sanctuary before service, light the candles on the Communion table and carry the light out to the world at the conclusion. Acolytes may receive the offering, offer the prayer of dedication, read the first scripture reading or participate in Baptism. Two acolytes serve each Sunday once every six weeks. Contact Alexandra Mead, Director.

Confirmation

8th graders and older are invited to join the church through confirmation. This experience allows students to serve in the church, build a relationship with a mentor, attend worship on a regular basis and meet in classes to explore the basics of the Christian faith and what it means to be Presbyterian. Confirmands attend a service weekend in New York City sponsored by the Center for Student Missions. Confirmation meets on Sundays after 10am worship October through April with dates and times determined in part by the students involved. The program culminates with Confirmation Sunday, usually in May, with the youth leading the 10am worship service. Contact Alexandra Mead.

High School Youth Group

This group meets at 1:30pm every Sunday for events and activities designed for high-schools age youth.  Over the course of a year, they take on mission trips, community service, Bible study, and more.  This Group currently meets online online.  Contact Patrick Allred to sign up.
