Youth group is for youth in grades 6-12. Our year starts in September with a beach retreat. Youth entering 6th grade are invited to begin youth group on this weekend.
We are a radically inclusive group who welcomes all into our fellowship.
Youth group mission statement:
We will frolic in the awesomeness of God’s creation and grow in our faith.
We will strive to live life up to the potential provided by creation.
We will spread God’s love in our group, our church, our community and our world.
Youth group meets most Tuesday nights from 5:30-7:30pm.
We seek to engage youth in these areas.
Service: Every other month, we have a service project at the Thurston County Food bank. Each summer we take a week long mission trip to preform service and explore God's world. Other opportunites are offered throughout the year and include the Crop Walk, service to the congregation and the Olympia community.
Worship: Youth are encouraged to be active in worship and given opportunities to serve as lay leaders, musicans and readers
Act: Youth spend time putting their faith into action. Becoming the hands and feet of God in today's world. We strive to use our gifts and talents to spread God's love to all of creation.
Grow: We are striving to grow in our understanding of God, Jesus and what it means to be a disciple of Chirst in the modern world. We are seeking to realize the potential inherant in us as creation's of God through developing spiritual disciplines in the areas of Bible study, prayer, stewardship, hospitality and service.
