1557253_846948122003174_7132320469589111406_oOur youth groups are divided by age, and pre-teens and teens are generally together in two-year groups. They meet on Sunday mornings during our education hour from 9:40 to 10:20 a.m. and the Wednesdays listed at the bottom of this page.

Children and Teens are invited to help lead worship by servicing as acolytes. More information is available here:Acolytes

12-13 year olds: Connections Group

The two years of Connections Sunday School and Wednesday night youth group are fun. We play games, laugh and learn a lot. We work to teach skills about being a friend, and how God calls us to treat everyone with compassion. We serve others, and grow together.

Perhaps more than anything else, all activities are geared to build this community, to establish trust and safety, to remind young people again and again that this is their church, and that they are safe and welcome within it.

Group meets in the Revelation Room at the end of Fellowship Hall on the right side.

When: Sunday Mornings, 9:40 to 10:20 a.m. and many Wednesday evenings 6:30-8:00 p.m. (Please check the church calendar if you have questions about Sunday School or Youth Group dates.)

13-14 year olds: Quest Group

Sunday mornings:  As we explore, Your Faith, Your Life, teenagers learn all about the Christian Faith into which they’ve been baptized and the Episcopal Church that offers them a spiritual home. We will explore the basics of what they need to know in order to understand their faith and claim it as their own.

Wednesday nights is a time for this group to explore topics and concerns that they have raised up to their group leaders as areas they would discuss and learn more about.  We will help teens create and understand the importance of Christian community as they develop critical thinking and other skills they will need to tackle these issues and move into the complexity of adulthood. The end of this year is marked with an immersion service experience that is often a life-changing experience for the group.

Group meets in the Genesis Room at the end of Fellowship Hall.

When: Sunday Mornings, 9:40 to 10:20 a.m. and Wednesday Evenings 6:30-8:00 p.m. (generally, the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month). Please check the church calendar if you have questions about Sunday School or Youth Group dates.
