Youth group participation is recommended for high school youth (Grade 9-12), and youth who have completed or are enrolled in the Coming of Age program.

Youth will use the Small Group Ministry model to explore topics and issues relevant to their lives and to what is happening in society.

Purpose: Minister to each other and provide opportunities for spiritual growth by

  1. Paying attention & listening to each other
  2. Acknowledging all are “teachers” and “learners”
  3. Encouraging each other and sharing about our spiritual journeys
