2016-2017 Youth Details and Calendar

 Jr High (6th-8th Grade)

Our Jr High Youth Group is a place for 6th, 7th and 8th graders to come, have fun, learn and grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ.  We love to hang out, play games and create great memories together.  We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 7:00  – 8:30 p.m.  We will kick off this Fall on September 6th!

During our Sunday morning Christian Formation hour we offer a Confirmation program during the school year for students in 6-8 grade.  Confirmation is a class where our Jr Highers are provided the tools and environment to discover the fundamentals of their faith, culminating in a Confirmation Service where our 8th graders are confirmed each year.

This year we will attend Winter Camp at Covenant Harbor in Lake Geneva, WI February 3-5th for a fun retreat that challenges our faith!  The cost of this retreat is $149. 

High School (9th-12th Grade)

Our High School Youth Group provides an opportunity to enjoy fellowship with one another and dig into meaningful conversation about our faith and the world around us.  We play games, hang out and have discussion around the many topics High School kids are faced with each year.  We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.  We will kick off this fall on September 13th. 

During our Sunday morning Christian Formation class from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.  This fall the class will be reading through the New Testament with the Community Bible Experience.  They will meet each Sunday morning to discuss the week’s reading.  

Our winter retreat this year is Sr High Whiteout at Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp in Northern Michigan.  This weekend away is a great time to refresh our lives with Christ and each other as well as interact with other High Schoolers from the Covenant. We will attend this retreat over President’s Day Weekend – February 17-19!  The cost for this retreat is $110.
