Pray Hard Play Hard
We will disciple students to be faithful servants of Jesus Christ, enabling them to be transformational agents who share God’s love and mercy, so that they will change the world for Christ.
Student Ministry (otherwise known as Youth Group) is a vibrant and burgeoning ministry to and of teenagers in the seventh through twelfth grades. Ours is a relational model of youth ministry. Many of the students in our youth group are part of it because they’ve been invited to Bible Study, and, like their friends here in the parish, they keep coming back.
We enjoy what God is doing in the lives of our young people. We meet students where they are spiritually, and we pour our hearts and souls, and a lot of energy, into ministry with them. We watch the way they love the Lord our God, and love their neighbors, here in greater Washington, DC and in other parts of the country, and it inspires us to want to do the same. All of the programs we offer help shape youth to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
During the school year, a Thursday evening Bible Study for middle and high school students is held at Glenolden House, our Youth House. We meet at 6:30 pm for snacks and fun (which includes everything from good conversation to icebreakers), and we begin the worship and Bible study at 7:00 wrapping things up by 8:00. This is a time to learn what God teaches and to listen for how He is going to use US to further His kingdom right here and right now! Youth Group provides an environment for learning and loving with one another in a safe environment among friends.
Another staple of the youth group is Sunday School throughout the school year. It is a time of biblical study, praise, worship, snacks, and ‘hang-out’ time each Sunday.
