WHAT WE DO:
SJ23 Youth Ministry meeting night session alternate in a three-week cycle. We have a teaching activity with a lesson based on the series that we are studying. Followed by a social activity, which can include anything from game nights, cooking, movie nights to outings. Lastly, a service activity, which supports the local and greater community and can range from helping around the church, to local food banks, pen pals with the sick or imprisoned, and having fundraising events to assist those in need. We also have dinner and snacks together each time we gather!
We meet every Fridays in the Parish Hall from 6:00-8:00 pm. Youth from grades 6-12 are welcome to join us.
Mini Bible Lessons on Teen Topics
We will look to what Scripture says on different topics that our teens are facing today. We will have time to discuss the issue of the night, along with reading what Scripture says about the topic. We will reflect on what we should do with the new information and how we can apply God’s Word to our lives.
