Middle & High School Youth Ministry

Living as disciples.

In the day-to-day busyness of life, the best thing we can offer families and teens is the peace of Christ.

We seek to foster a community for all 6th-12th graders to have fun, ask the hard questions, and form deep friendships while growing in their relationship with God.

Throughout the year we offer a variety of opportunities for our youth to experience Christ in their daily lives. 

For more information on the ministries we offer EMAIL Carly.

 

Grades 6 – 8: We meet Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30pm. All students in 6, 7, and 8th grade are invited to join us on Wednesdays. We will be growing in faith together, guided by one proposal: Jesus gives us something in every moment; if we can’t see it, we pray about it; if we do see it, we share it with each other. By following this, we are helped to grow in friendship with Jesus and each other. Registration is needed for this ministry. 

Grades 9 – 12: We meet Wednesdays from 7:40-8:30 p.m. during the school year. We share our lives by discussing life events, church teachings, and current issues. We also play games, pray, and sometimes share a meal. We mature in our faith by helping each other see Christ alive in our daily lives. No registration needed. 

 

Those in grades 8th-12th who are interested in in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to register. Click here for more information on Confirmation at Epiphany.
