Opportunities for Youth

In a typical academic year, the Youth at Grace (grades 6-12) all meet together between the two Sunday services from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and occasionally outside of Sundays for the express purpose of fellowship and recreation.

Nothing has been typical this year of course, but our youth were able to meet outdoors on Sundays during the fall. Due to rising COVID19 cases in the community, Grace Church suspended in-person gatherings over the winter and our youth participated in the parish wide Episcopal 1010 Zoom class during Lent. This class is a great foundation for anyone considering becoming confirmed when the Bishop visits this summer.

The Diocese has updated protocols to again allow in-person gatherings so stay tuned for information about youth get-togethers!

If you are new to Grace Church and are/have a 6-12th grade student interested in joining our youth group, please email Cheryl Kelley for information.

Youth Program Goals

The primary goal of the Youth formation program is to equip our young people with the skills necessary to engage their peers in thoughtful and respectful discourse regarding the Christian faith and to develop the skills to explore their own journey of faith. These skills include learning how to use biblical commentaries, learning the various hermeneutical lenses through which Holy Scripture may be read and understood, and the capacity to be emotionally and psychologically resilient through life’s inevitable disappointments and challenges. In addition to training youth in these skills, our adult facilitators help foster and maintain a community where seeking for God is welcomed and space is provided for discussions about current events in the lives of the young people in the group.

Our hope is that the decision to be confirmed in the Church by the bishop will be a joyous occasion in which each young person takes responsibility for the baptismal promises made earlier on their behalf by parents and godparents. Our hope is also that the community of the youth group will always be a safe place for those who may not be ready to make this affirmation.
