Teens are not just the future of our church at Holy Communion. Teens are leaders in our church today. You can find our teens helping younger children on Sunday morning, serving as an acolyte, or leading adults in reaching out to those in need.
On Sunday mornings, youth help out with the younger kids Godly Play class, sing in the youth choir, and acolyte. They are also welcome to join adult forum discussions. On Sunday evenings, the first and third Sunday of the month, they have the run of the church. We provide a simple dinner, a chance to play games (including the ever popular flashlight tag), and for discussions bridging the stories of the Bible to our lives today. We meet for youth group in Mitchell Hall from 5:30pm to 7:30pm the first and third Sunday of each month. See you there!
We also plan regular outings, to the City Museum, to see one another in performances and competing in our schools’s sports leagues. This year we are also looking to plan a volunteer service trip.

We arrange for youth confirmation on an “as needed” basis. Please speak to Brooklyn if you’d like to get ready for Confirmation.
