"The Episcopal Church Welcomes You," is not just a slogan, it’s who we seek to be and the witness we seek to make, following the way of Jesus. (Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry)
About St. Christopher's Youth Jesus Christ's life and ministry was marked by progressive, radical love. The call for us to follow, and the invitation that we extend to others, grows out of that same extraordinary love. Baptized into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, our spiritual journey goes deep, goes to the edge, and beyond.
At St. Christopher’s, no one will tell you what you must believe. We’re much more interested in questions of faith than in making sure youth memorize “the right answer.” We all take part in creating a sacred space together where people can trust and share without fear of judgment. We talk about real issues and share our doubts and concerns. No one is perfect; we all make mistakes. At the same time, we are committed to holding each other up and being there for each other.
Anyone in the 6th through 12th grades is automatically a member of St. Christopher’s Youth Group. Come to see what we have to offer. The events and resources are dynamic and provide diverse opportunities for today’s youth to develop their own faith and spirituality, learn about God, forge lasting friendships, experience the grace of the Holy Spirit, and go out into the world as advocates of peace and justice.
Youth Programming for the Spring Semester 2021 Between January 10 and March 21, fourteen of your will have Confirmation classes. Due to the shift of students from Formation to Confirmation, we are combining all students not participating in Confirmation classes into one Formation class for the next ten weeks.
The Confirmation class will meet on Sundays, from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm. The Formation class will meet on Sundays, at 9:00 am.
With the current COVID situation, our plans for Youth Group and Study Sundays during the cold weather are in limbo. When spring comes and the weather gets nicer, we will be able to meet in the outdoor classroom again. In the meantime, if you are looking for a service project, the church has several ongoing projects you may be able to help with. If this is of interest to you, please email Youth Leader Allie Wacker and she will help you find a group to work with.
To help everyone with planning, please refer to the Schedule for Spring 2021. As we learn more, or the semester changes, we will adjust it as needed. For this particular schedule, we have not included Youth Group activities. The Youth Leader will send messages via Google Groups email and Remind as those come up.
