Youth Formation

St. Paul’s Youth Group is a welcoming, loving, and judgement-free space for young people in grades 6 through 12 to discover who they are, the gifts they bring, and what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We encourage questions, honesty, and authenticity and are committed to nurturing a holistic understanding of the Christian faith. We are guided by three principles: formation, play, and service

Formation

This year’s focus is on making tough decisions. Guiding our discussions is the  Episcopal Curriculum for Youth.

Service
Several times a year our youth engage in a project of love and service in our community, such as participating in our county’s hunger walk, serving at the local soup kitchen, and so much more. The best part is that all youth projects are youth inspired and led.
