Youth Group


Middle and high school students gather with Pastor Allison for discussion and snacks after Sunday services.


Middle and high school students from St. Francis, St. James Episcopal, and Christ Church gather together for Youth Group meetings on Sunday evenings.  We rotate meeting locations between churches and other venues (restaurants, parks, activities, service projects, etc.).  We often do special events or outings, so be sure to check the calendar or contact

We begin with dinner and fun (which includes everything from good conversation to icebreakers), and continue with small group discussions, fun activities or service projects. We usually wrap things up around 8:30pm.  We are a dynamic, welcoming, and judgment-free group of faithful and thoughtful teens who gather to apply our Christian values to our everyday lives. Come join us! 

We examine the everyday struggles, anxieties, and issues that today’s teens face, and we learn to use our Christian values to help us navigate these hurdles. This is a special time for teens 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 a safe environment for learning about and loving Christ, ourselves, and each other.  Together, we serve those who are in need through service projects, mission trips, fundraisers, and other activities. Come join us – many of our kids bring their friends to these meetings. All middle and high school students are welcome!
