What to Expect

Senior High Youth Group

Sundays 7 – 8:15 p.m.

All 9-12th graders are invited to gather on Sunday evenings in the Youth Lounge for community-building games, small groups, and faith activities and discussions. 

Retreats

Fall and Winter

Retreats are held twice during the year for high school youth and are a chance to delve deeper into topics of faith while growing closer to one another over a weekend together.

Work Trip

Every June

Every June the Senior High Youth Group travels to another community for a week to engage in service by renovating homes for those in need. Find out more about the Work Trip here.
