Faith Formation | Youth

We welcome all youth to participate in FCC events, worship, and education!

“When we dare to think about youth ministry holistically and to incorporate the spirit of the Way of Christ into everything we do—from lock-ins to mission trips, from game nights to campfire worship—we’re inviting young people to experience a missional way of life in which God’s Spirit is evident in all they say and do.” (Kirk/Thorne, Missional Youth Ministry).

  • Weekly programs

    Middle School and High School Youth are currently meeting weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7pm with Josh Rumple via Zoom. 

    If you have a kid who is Grade 6-12, please contact Josh Rumple directly to get them connected! 

    Typically, during the program year (September-May), our middle school group (Grades 6-8) and our high school group (Grades 9-12) meet weekly for ritual, bonding and learning. The program covers a variety topics ranging from music and film, resolving conflict, faith and politics, arts and spirituality, singing and mission trip preparation. Youth are encouraged to participate fully in the life of the congregation: attend worship services and volunteer in various capacities.

    Time: Every Sunday, 9:45 am – 10:45 am (during Faith Formation Hour)

  • Annual mission trips

    We are planning to have both a Middle School trip and a High School trip, during Summer 2021!   SO, WATCH THIS SPACE!

    We believe that connecting our faith to serving and working with others is an important aspect of faith development in our teens. With adult leadership, teens are offered the opportunity to experience an annual youth mission trip. We believe these trips will be a life-changing experience. Preparation, fundraising and bonding begins in the spring months before the trip.

  • Confirmation

    Confirmation is a rite of passage. It is a focused spiritual time for deepening a young person’s faith and for receiving a blessing from one’s spiritual community, the church. It’s a time for nurturing one’s relationship with God, exploring Christian practices, learning basic beliefs and discovering how these things can become a life-long adventure. We offer this program every other year.

  • our whole lives

    OWL is designed to be relevant for young people from a wide range of family backgrounds and contexts. The United Church of Christ affirms that sexuality and spirituality are intricately connected and that both are gifts from God. We offer this program of learning, faith and sexuality to our 8/9 graders every other year.
