Youth Education

God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Service

Worship Leaders

Youth grades 6 – 12 are encouraged to participate along with our adults as worship leaders.  They will grow in an understanding of how our worship is organized, establish positive relationships with mentoring adults and develop leadership skills.  Youth interesting in serving should consider:

Acolytes 
Lectors (readers)
Torch Bearers
Ushers/Greeters
Jr. Altar Guild

 

Worship Notes

Whether you are worshiping in the pew or at home, Worship Notes are a great way for teens to engage with the service. Each week, they’ll answer questions about what they see and hear as well as pick another relevant topic they’d like to talk about, “choose your own adventure” style. Taking Worship Notes is a great way for us to check-in on our youth so that we can better connect with them and plan future programming. (It’s cool for adults to check it out, too.)
