St. John’s Youth Group is open to all youth from the local community in grades 6-12. We meet most Wednesday nights from September through May at the church. Our evenings begin at 6 pm with Brown Bag dinner (bring your own, fast food or home cooking) and offer fun, fellowship and Bible study or group discussions. All youth eat together and then break into our 2 groups: “Seekers in Sneakers¬Ě” for middle school and “The Walk”¬Ě for the high school.
Sundays you will find our youth in the St John’s church balcony, participating as acolytes, and after church, selling donuts to support our programs.
The first Wednesday of every month is Youth Euch,¬Ě an age appropriate worship time with Fr. John using familiar liturgy with a twist.
Our youth proudly participate in the church life with Youth Sunday, presenting The Great Vigil of Easter, and various services throughout the year.
The Almost Allnighter event, held annually on the first Friday after Labor Day is a sell out every year and serves as an opportunity for our members to invite others from the local community to meet the St. John’s family.
Over MLK weekend each year, the Winter Retreat provides our youth with an opportunity to gather together for deeper Bible instruction, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and the company of one another all while eating more carbs and sugar than one would think humanly possible.
