Middle and High School

We welcome all youth in 5th-12th grade to join our community and participate fully in worship, fellowship, and fun with our youth group. We respect the identity and individuality of each person and recognize that our unique selves combine to create a rich community. We strive to foster a welcoming environment that encourages and elevates the perspectives and voices of our young people.

In partnership with the entire congregation, youth ministry at St. John’s Episcopal Church fosters a supportive and loving community of growth for young people. Through fellowship with one another, exploration of our Christian faith, and values-based community engagement, youth become the leaders to transform our church, the local community, and the world.

Religious Education: Sunday morning starting at 9:30 am youth in grades 5th-12th are invited to the upstairs classrooms to participate in Film School. In Film School we will watch a Hollywood film over the course of four weeks, and each session will include reading of relevant scripture and a whole-group discussion.
