Youth And Young Adults

Youth Ministries at St. John's accompany young people as they develop a loving and meaningful relationship with God

Youth Group

The Youth Group is for youth in 7th-12th grade. We meet in the Crypt, 6pm-8pm, every Wednesday during the school year. We play games, share a meal, enjoy fellowship and discuss a spiritual reflection based on our Judeo-Christian heritage.

During the seasons of Advent and Lent the youth work on service projects to those in need in our community.

TEC - Teens Encountering Christ

Teens Encountering Christ (TEC) is a retreat weekend of spiritual journey for youth in 9th through 12th grades, led by youth. TEC is modeled on a Cursillo spiritual renewal experience. During the weekend there are ten youth-led talks combined with worship that direct the focus through Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Pentecost.

The young people become friends, enjoy activities and come alive to their own spirituality. Through this experience they take responsibility for their own faith life, which prepares them to become leaders. Our goal is that after experiencing a TEC retreat, these young people will take on leadership roles in future TEC's.

TEC is always held in January, over Martin Luther King Jr weekend ~ January 12-14 in 2018.
