The Youth Ministry at St. Paul & St. Andrew is a vital, growing, active part of our life as a faith community. All youth in grades 6 to 12 are invited to be a participate.
Sundays from 12:45-2 pm, the youth meet for food, fellowship, and fun. The priority of our time together is to build relationship with each other and with God. Carter Snyder-Samuelson, our Youth Director, combines Bible study, social justice, games, and food to make the time meaningful and engaging.
The youth take every chance they can get to hang out. They have lock-ins, go on the annual retreat, lead worship on Youth Sunday, travel to a work/mission trip every other year, help with our Tutoring Program on Wednesdays, help with Sunday school and Vacation Bible School, and are active in every single part of the life of St. Paul & St. Andrew.
The youth group enjoys monthly social activities such as apple picking, ice skating, lunches and the much anticipated lock-ins. These activities give the youth group members a chance to bond with each other and build community as well as allowing the opportunity to bring new friends who may be uncomfortable in a church setting. The group also participates in the mission of the church by working with the community by helping prepare meals for GEMS and other WSCAH events as well as a yearly foreign mission trip with the conference.
