8th Grade Youth Group is lively and spirit-filled! Our weekly gatherings are open to all youth in grade 8, and friends are always welcome.
Each week we begin with snacks and a prayer, followed by a meaningful discussion or activity that explores topics such as family, friends, school, faith, doubts, joys, and life’s stresses in engaging ways. We also explore every nook and cranny of the church, from storage closets to sanctuary.
Meeting once a week provides an opportunity for the youth to build strong and lasting relationships based on love, acceptance, honesty and forgiveness. At the beginning of each year, the group writes a covenant with promises calling each person to be his or her best. Youth group, with the guidance provide by adult and youth advisors, becomes a safe place to express yourself in the midst of joyful play, open discussions, and an accepting atmosphere.
In March, we spend a weekend on retreat at Grotonwood Conference Center. This retreat is one of the highlights of the year. The youth also have the opportunity to share dinner and worship with the residents of Jubilee House several times each year. Other youth group activities include our annual Coffeehouse and Youth Sunday.
