"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)
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, and 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 Formation Christian formation for youth meets every Sunday from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. upstairs in the Youth Lounge. Join us for Donuts and Discussion.
During Sunday morning youth formation, we use the Anglican three-fold authority of scripture, tradition, and reason as a guide to explore faith by asking questions about God, the Bible, and our role as members of the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. Drawing from various different sources, each lesson will contain a “big” question as well as teachings from the Episcopal tradition. All students in sixth through twelfth grades are welcome to attend and guests are always welcome.
Youth Group Youth Group meets every second and fourth Sunday of the month from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. sharing in a mix of discussion, service activities, and fellowship. 2nd Sundays, we meet at the Starbucks next to the church for study sessions. Bring your homework, questions, and concerns. 4th Sundays, in the fall semester of 2019, we will explore how we can put our faith in action by following the theme "Marked for Mission." Youth Group is a respectful, fun, caring and involved community that provides an opportunity to take a break from the pressures of daily life, relax and explore faith. Friends and guests are always welcome. Youth Group meetings begin with dinner and end with a short evening prayer service
