What’s Youth Group for? We decided it was for stuff that matters to us. Choices. Multicultural lives. Poverty awareness. Earth. Friendships. Inclusive to all. GLBTQ-friendly. Faith. Self. We don’t have all the answers, but we’re finding our way forward in a safe place.

 

Thursdays (7-8:30 pm; ages 12+) a mix of fun/hanging out, with substance. What matters to you? We take a theme and work it out, we talk, play ping pong, eat, watch stuff, listen to Music that matters. We challenge each other. There is room for all – we’re differently-abled, diverse backgrounds, athletic or artistic – but we all come open to one another.

Sundays (10:45-11:30am; ages 10+) Seeking meaning? Checking out church? Start in Worship at 10:30 all together, then youth 10+ drop downstairs part way through. A chance to mix life & faith together, exploring how it looks for us. Look at what God is doing in our world & in us. Welcome, wondering, and open to your ideas.

Alternative Events Overnight retreats, field trips, Skyzone, laser tag, outings, mission opportunites, Confirmation, camping – as planned. Our GO Project missions and leadership opportunities are supported by the congregation.

Network Matters Teens have awesome capacity & we strengthen that with a wider network. We’re supported by a mix of adults & parents who care, drive, cook, listen, and respond. Parents: Let Carolyn know if there is a theme, idea, concern or solution we can explore.

See our Bulletin Board or contact Carolyn Smith about our schedule.

From Carolyn: Need to talk? I can listen. Anything you’re having trouble with, or wondering about, why not run it by me? Problems with parents or school or friends? Confusing relationship? Questions about sex, or big trouble, or body issues, or pressure? Feeling sad or angry? I can give you a safe space to open up. Facebook me, email or call, we can meet or you can text.
