A Sunday Formation Class; welcoming those currently in grades 6th to 12th
Sundays from 10:20-11:05 | September – May 2
In Youth Formation, we gather for 45 minutes to enjoy donuts and discussion. We've pondered questions like “Is God Male?”; “Did God write the Bible?”; and “What is the real meaning of Christmas?” Occasionally, we will join the Adult Formation when it features a special lecture series, and we always follow the curriculum of the wider church’s small groups when they occur. Registration is never required. Just come to the Youth Room on Sunday morning.
A Social/Fellowship Group; welcoming those currently in grades 6th to 12th
Most Sundays from 5-7PM
Youth Group meets weekly on Sundays during the program year, typically from 5-7PM. We usually spend three weeks each month at the church, and one at an offsite community-building trip like a Sox game or a hiking outing. Each night begins with dinner, often made by parent volunteers. (Sign up in advance to make a meal here.) Check out our info board outside of the youth room, subscribe to the SPR parish's weekly email blast, or follow us at @SPRYouth for updated scheduling info.
Are you a member of the youth group? We'd love to update your information; please register it here.
