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, 9:00-9:50, in the Youth Lounge
We use Spark House’s re:form curriculum to study the Bible and Methodism and to talk about how it relates to our lives. We start out worshiping together in the 9:00 worship service, then head down to the Youth Lounge for class after the greeting time. The Confirmation Class visits other churches, helps out with church service, and has a lunch and discussion with the pastor at least three times a year.
Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 in the Youth Lounge. (Please enter the building through the west bell tower doors.)
Our Fellowship 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. Jr. High also participate in a Church/Community Scavenger Hunt throughout the year, where they earn points for completing a variety of fun tasks. 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!
