Our Vision and Hope
Students in grades 6 through 12 are not just the future of the church, as is commonly said, they are the church today! They gather looking for encouragement, enjoyment, relevance and an authentic, trustworthy set of experiences. Our program is about connecting with one another and with God in a safe and thoughtful atmosphere. We challenge our students to grow in their understanding of God, and their own spiritual journey, a personal relationship with the living Christ. No single thing does the trick. But learning to pray, serve, share, study and gather together with other Christians are all part of the wonderful mix that is Student Ministries at St. Paul’s.
Our Youth Space
Most of our meetings take place in our newly expanded Youth Space on the lower level of St. Paul’s, next to the Gymnasium on the West Side of the church, near Kenilworth. This space has lots of comfortable seating, game tables, a café, a lounge and a large meeting room with a stage to accommodate small bands, poets and other entertainers. We have an outside entrance with a horseshoe drive for easy drop off and pick up.
During the School Season (September through early June)
Our Junior High group, aka Serious Fun, meets on Friday nights beginning September 18, 2015 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm in the Youth Space next to the Gymnasium. Our meeting is for grades 6-8. The format is dinner (often pizza), fun games, an engaging presentation, singing and prayers. "My Favorite Things" is the intriguing theme for our kick off on September 18. Come and see how it relates to each of our lives and to the gospel.
Momentum meets the 1st Sunday of the month at 6:00PM in the Youth Space downstairs. Don't miss out and bring your friends!
YOUTH FORM (SUNDAY MORNINGS 10:10AM - 11:00AM)
Youth Form meets Sunday mornings in the Youth Space (lower level by the gym) after the 9:15 service. Come and explore/question/discuss the Bible as we discover exactly who is this person we call Jesus.
Help feed the needy at this downtown mission every third Sunday from 1-3pm. No experience needed, just a willing spirit, helping heart, and warm sense of fun! Be Christ's hands in the world!
