In accordance with our Great Commission and love of God, the youth ministry of All Saints provides service to grow our Parish and community, support to bring about the spiritual growth of our peers, and witness to bring others to Christ as disciples.
Love God. Serve Community. Support Peers. Witness Christ.
At All Saints, we believe that Christian youth formation is paramount to build future Christ centered community citizens. We have a growing and evolving youth program that is designed to teach our youth about the love of God, the sacrifice of Jesus, as well as how to be present in out community and shine the light of Christ through our actions. We currently have 3 programs to support our youth:
Sunday School: (Sundays 10:15-11:15) Taught during the normal school year, our Sunday School program is a youth centric, all ages program that uses a Bible based curriculum that generally follows the Revised Common Lectionary. Most lessons are based on the Gospel, although other common Bible stores and themes are explored. Class typically starts with the lesson and discussion and ends with a craft or game. For our older youth, we will continue the lesson discussion exploring ways to apply the lesson to our lives. Sunday School is currently out of session during the Covid-19 situation.
Children’s Word: (Sunday 10:00 Zoom) Usually a small children’s sermon during the main celebration, during this time we have set aside 5-10 minutes before service to meet with youth and families. A brief lesson about today’s readings as well as a check in with the youth helps us to stay connected. Coming soon is a Youth Corner, where there will be videos and discussions for our youth to keep them engaged.
Episcopal Youth Community (EYC): The Episcopal Youth Community is the youth group arm of the Episcopal Church. This group will be composed of Middle and High Schoolers in a combined program with the goal to split into a Junior and Senior group. The mission of the EYC is to empower our youth by giving them the tools needed to be Christ centric in their lives, to see where they can help others, and to build their self esteem to make good decisions. Members can expect monthly meetings where we will discuss a Biblical topic and discover how we can utilize these themes in our experiences today. Quarterly, there will be fun activities scheduled for the entire family. EYC is currently not meeting due to the Covid-19 situation.
