For Middle and High School Youth we offer monthly 'Youth Talks.' On these Sundays our older youth are invited to sit together in the sanctuary for worship. After the sermon, the youth group leaves the service early for treats and talking downstairs in Fellowship Hall. We talk about life, arts, sports, faith, community, and more. Friends are welcome!
In alternate years we offer a twice a month, school-year-long Confirmation Class for middle school students to learn about our shared history and traditions, as well as explore their own faith more deeply. We invite these students to affirm their baptisms and join our church in a youth-led Confirmation Service in early May. Following Confirmation Class, we connect our youth with adult mentors to deepen their connection to our larger community. Older youth are welcome to join us at Sunday School in special leadership roles. High School youth are invited to participate in worship as lay readers, Jr. deacons, and choir members. We offer many intergenerational events where our whole church family can learn and play together, such as our annual All Church Retreat at Tower Hill Camp & Retreat Center in Sawyer, MI on Lake Michigan for a weekend each June.
