Our youth meet weekly for fellowship on Wednesday nights and for worship on Sunday mornings during the school year. In the summer, they take a break but still get together for some summer fun and a mission trip. Along with our many adult volunteers, the youth attend retreats, complete service projects, and go on mission trips that they pay for themselves through fundraisers.
The St. Luke Jr. High Youth, for Grades 7-8, grow closer to each other, to the people they serve, to their church community, and to God.
Sundays, 9:45-10:25, in the Youth Lounge
We use “Confirm” curriculum to study the Bible and Methodism and to talk about how it relates to our lives. Confirmation Class is held between the worship services, from 9:45-10:25. In addition to the Sunday class, we visit other churches, help out with church services, and have a lunch and discussion with the pastor several times a year.
Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 in the Youth Lounge. (Please enter the building through the west bell tower doors.)
Wednesday night youth group night is an opportunity to put what we learn on Sundays into action. We work all year with Youth Emergency Services (YES), completing a service project each month. Along the way, we attend the District’s Middle School Retreat, play games, and have fun hanging out together.
The highlight of the year is a 5-day mission trip that the Jr. High go on each summer. This is one of the best things about being in youth group, for the youth and the adults!
