Youth Ministry

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: discipleship, fellowship, and service. 


Piney Youth Group meets on the second Sunday every month for games, lunch, and discussion around a faith topic.This year’s focus is on making tough decisions. Guiding our discussions is the  Episcopal Curriculum for Youth.


Enjoying one another’s company is one of the best ways we build community and build trust. The youth do a variety of things, including camping trips, kayaking, laser tag, and everything in between.

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.
