Senior Youth (Grades 8-12)

Sunday Meeting

Senior Youth join our whole community for worship at 10:00am every Sunday morning. Every second Sunday, Senior Youth relocate to the church basement part-way through the service for a guided discussion on important topics about life, faith, and biblical texts. The group is currently working their way through the book "Why You're Here: Ethics for the Real World" by John G. Stackhouse. Youth are given their own copy and expected to read the chapter ahead of our discussion.

Friday Meeting

Every Friday night Senior Youth meet at the church from 7:00-9:00pm where they alternate weekly between social gatherings (board game and movie nights) and what we call "Dessert and Discussions." The current "Dessert and Discussions" series is on faith and doubt and the group is working their way through the book "Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism" by Timothy Keller. Youth are given their own copy and expected to read the chapter ahead of our discussion.
