From Sept. to May at 9:45 (and earlier) the youth gather in room 117 and 118 with a Hospitality Bar (hot chocolate, coffee, sweets, etc.) for fellowship, welcome and announcements from our Director of Youth Ministries, Janelle Brinker. They then disperse into 4 classrooms: 7th grade room 117, 8th grade room 118, 9th/10th grades room 120 and 11th/12th grades room 205. We use Feasting on the Word curriculum which is based on the Revised Common Lectionary that we use in worship.
During the summer months the middle and high school youth meet together for one class.
Youth are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Feasting on the Word materials provide opportunities for this age group to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God's amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ's disciples. Each session includes a media connection section that ties the week's Scripture passage to a film, song, or Web site.
