High School Youth

High School Youth teachers are Rick Brown, Julie O’Reilly and Mindy Boynton. The kick-off date for this group is Sunday, Sept. 13th, 11:30 a.m. For a schedule of meetings, activities, and retreats, see Director of Children, Youth, & Family Ministries, Mindy Boynton.

As confirmed members of the church, senior high youth help create their own programs and are encouraged to serve in a parish ministry. The program seeks to help youth discern their gifts and plan how to pursue developing those gifts in high school and beyond. Many programs and events are available to them such as Teens Encounter Christ, Peer Ministry training, Episcopal Youth Events, Mission trips and much more.
