Ministry for Youth

Youth Group

Our youth gather for Sunday School most Sundays mornings, partway through the worship service at the same time the children meet for Worship & Wonder. It’s a time for fellowship, fun, and sharing their faith story. They also meet several times a year to work on special projects and activities such as preparing for the summer mission trip, planning and carrying out the spaghetti supper, and Vacation Bible School.

**Over the summer, we’re doing a “one-room” Summer Sunday School of crafts and activities led by various members of the congregation most Sundays. Elementary age through high school will work and have fun together during this time.**

For up-to-the-minute details, contact Rev Karin Kilpatric or visit our calendar of upcoming events.


Acolyte lighting candles at the beginning of worshipYouth are invited to attend training and serve as acolytes for Sunday worship. Inter- ested youth please contact us for training information and to be scheduled for service as an acolyte.


Confirmation for youth is offered every other year by Pastor Karin Kilpatric. At the end of their study there is a special youth service when these teens will be confirmed into the church.

We are proud of our confirmands for taking this big step toward adulthood!

Youth in 7th, 8th & 9th grade are welcome. Please contact the church office if you are interested in the next class.
