This is a unique stage of life, when youth are forming their identities, and making faith their own.
Our youth are an integral part of our life as a church on the whole. We don’t see adolescence as a stage of life when teens are separated from our larger family to simply do wacky teenage stuff. We see them as maturing young men and women, who have much to contribute.
At our regular services, All Souls Youth are greeters, Scripture readers, and participate on the Worship and AV teams. They remain with us during the service as members of our whole body that worships as one. They serve in our community as well, as they took the lead at All Souls last year in serving our homeless neighbors with Helping Hands.
All Souls youth are led, taught and cared for by our youth leaders, who love them. At the same time we don’t view the responsibility of loving and discipling our youth as their responsibility, but that of our community on the whole, especially their parents. Thus, we also see caring for and discipling parents as a vital aspect of youth ministry.
If you would like to learn more specifics about what we do at Soul Youth, or have a son or daughter that you'd like to connect, send an email and our leaders would be glad to reach out.
Our youth get together every Sunday at 9:45am. They also meet as a group on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month. Both provide the opportunity to grow in their knowledge of Christ, bond with one another, and have fun doing it.
As you would expect, All Souls Youth also enjoy going on adventures. Throughout the year we plan special events, such as a retreat weekend away, whitewater rafting, and to Great Adventure.
