Our Vision of Youth Ministry at Saint John's
We believe our young people need to live as part of our whole church community rather than separate from it. Teens who develop meaningful relationships with adults in church other than their parents are far more likely to participate in church as an active adult than those who are walled off from "adult" church. We encourage purposeful, participatory intergenerational life in Christian community, so the youth of our church are welcomed as full participants in our services, at any of our classes or Christian Formation offerings, fellowship dinners, retreat weekends, etc.
This doesn't mean we don't have fun together or have offerings targeted at the social, emotional, and spiritual development of our teens. We offer a teens Sunday School, service and mission work, and weekly Episcopal youth community activities. Read more below.
