YOUTH

CROSSROADS MINISTRY

Crossroads gathers Wednesdays from 6:45-8pm during the school year. Youth in grades 7-9 come together for a large group time of music, a game and a brief message. After this, they gather in small groups where they build friendships and spend time with an adult and older high school aged mentors. These groups are a favorite time to catch up with friends and talk about relevant topics for teens. Crossroads provides youth with the message that they are loved by God and always have a place in God's family. Crossroads also offers additional events and retreats during the year, as well as opportunities to make a difference in the community and in the church through serving. Contact Kristine Clemens for more information about Crossroads and any of our youth ministry opportunities. Download the Crossroads Registration Form.


SENIOR HIGH MINISTRY EVENTS AND MISSION TRIP

Senior High youth participate as mentors in our Crossroads Ministry. In addition, a variety of events during the year (ski and snowboard trips, movie nights, and Bible studies) draw students together. One of the biggest events of the year is our summer mission trip. Senior high youth travel across the country to serve, while growing in faith and community together.  In summer 2018, youth traveled to upstate New York. In 2019, join us as we travel to the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana. See below for more information about the 2019 trip.


RETREATS

Youth in grades 7-12 have opportunities to get away from school and other commitments during the year for retreats. Youth build community together, explore faith and have fun.  Retreats scheduled in 2018-2019 include:

  • Youth Serving Retreat - October 26-27
  • 8th Grade - November 10-11
  • 9th Grade - December 8
  • February 2019 - 30 Hour Famine.  Youth and friends grades 7-12 participate in the annual 30 Hour Famine. It's a weekend of fasting from food and learning about hunger related diseases. The weekend is spent doing service projects, playing games, growing closer to God, having fun and making new friends.
  • 9th Grade - April 2019

Contact Kristine to register for an upcoming retreat.


SUMMER CAMP OPPORTUNITIES

Youth have access to Camp Wapo, which offers incredible options to connect with friends and faith during the summer.  Older teens have experiences at Ox Lake Camp in close proximity to Camp Wapo, and more adventurous types can experience Wilderness Canoe Base in the Boundary Waters. Learn more about the Camp Wapo association and the opportunities available to youth through All Saints.


SERVING

Youth enjoy helping as assistants in our kids ministry, greeters, worship assistants, and in roles throughout the church. Talk to Kristine Clemens or another appropriate staff member to find out how to get started.
