Youth Experiences

Sing and Celebrate Choir:

 Mission Trip:

Grades 9 thru 12

Every year the high school youth of our church are invited to put faith into action by going on a mission trip.  Mission trips provide participants with hands on service-learning opportunities through which we live into our church’s mission of, “embracing all people, working for justice and peace, and rendering loving service to God’s world.”  This year, a group of youth and adults will be going to Tucson, AZ!  For more information about the 2016 Mission Trip, please click here

 

Our Whole Lives (OWL):

Grades 7 thru 12

This is a series of comprehensive sexuality education resources written by human sexuality educators for use in a variety of congregational, school, and community settings.  Core values of OWL include self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, justice and inclusivity.

There are two programs we offer.  One is geared towards grades 7 and 8 youth; the other for grades 10-12.  We alternate each year between the two programs.  In 2016-2017 we will hold the OWL program for grades 7-8.  In 2017-2018 we will offer the OWL program for grades 10-12.
