"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.
Youth in the 6th through 12th grades are automatically a members 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.
