Youth Group is for 9th-12th graders. Throughout the year, they have a variety of activities.
The Youth Group meets in the Crypt from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Wednesday during the school year. Each week the youth play games, share a meal, enjoy fellowship and discuss a spiritual reflection.
Youth Group Retreats
The youth group holds occasional retreats during the year. During the retreats the youth spend time with one another engaged in trust and community building exercises. They develop closer relationships with one another as a result of these experiences.
Teens Encountering Christ
Teens Encountering Christ is a retreat weekend of spiritual journey for youth in 9th through 12th grades. The TEC experience is an entire weekend for youth and led by youth. TEC is modeled on a Cursillo spiritual renewal experience. During the weekend there are a series of ten youth led talks combined with worship that lead the youth through the Ash Wednesay, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Pentecost experience.
The young people who attend will experience friendships, enjoy fun activities and come alive to their own spirituality. Teens Encountering Christ helps to build young people up spiritually. Through this experience they take responsibility for their faith life. It also prepares our youth to be leaders as the expectation is that after experiencing a TEC a youth will then take on leadership roles in subsequent TEC's.
