Fall 2021 Update:
The Youth Group for 6th to 12th grade students will start this fall on Zoom.
6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Please contact us if your child would like to attend.
Join on Zoom for a time of games such as Among Us, Jackbox Games or Superfight. We also connect with one another and have discussions about faith and life. Friends are welcome.
After school gets going and we check how Delta is affecting youth in the area, we will reevaluate if we can meet in-person. The committee will discuss again in early September.
Youth Group Fellowship- designed for 6th grade through High School also meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30. This group opens with recreation and fellowship time, moves to a free dinner time followed by discussions on important topics to them and how God wants them to respond. They also have weekend overnight adult supervised "lock-ins" which usually include a local mission project and lots of fun! Special events like snow trips, mission trips, church camp, and Triennium are also supported by our church.
Fall 2021 Update:
The Faith Development Committee decided at a
meeting on August 10 to delay any plans to start Seekers and Club 45 programs
for elementary youth. We are waiting to
see how the Delta variant affects Covid rates among unvaccinated children. We will reevaluate on a monthly basis.
We have three age level programs for our children and youth that meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:30- 7:30 and includes a free dinner for all participates.
- The Seekers- designed for children Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Children learn Bible Stories through a variety of activities which may include crafts, dress up and acting out stories, games and recreation, and a praise time with prayer and music.
- Club 45- designed for children in grades 4 and 5. Emphasis on the lessons and activities is on learning how God wants us to live. These pre-tweens will read scripture, discuss and have fun activities to explore how the scripture applies to their everyday life. They will also have recreation and a praise time with shared prayers and music.
We also financially aid and encourage our children and youth to attend week long church camp at Westminster Woods in Occidental, Ca. Camp provides an opportunity for children, youth and adults to encounter the love and grace of God within a Christ-centered community of faith and celebrate their uniquely made selves. They also make friends and have fun experiencing games, the swimming pool, creek walks, cargo nets, and rope courses.
Once every three years, we sponsor some of our High School Students going to the Presbyterian Youth Triennium held at Purdue University for five days in July. Youth from around the world attend this event and exchange their Presbytery pins as they make friends, live in the dorms, experience the heat, and attend energizing worship, participate in Bible Studies and lots of fun activities. The youth return home and share their energizing experience during Sunday service. We had four youth attend in 2019.
Coming back July 24-27, 2022
