Youth

Youth

At St. Stephen’s Church, we work with our youth to nurture meaningful personal relationships with God and their peers. Connecting with others through a church community is vitally important to the faith development of young people.  Our programs help junior and senior high students understand the love of God, appreciate what it means to be a community of faith, and undertake their own spiritual journey.

Our ministry serves youth in grades 6 -12 and is committed to helping teens develop and nurture meaningful, life-giving relationships with Christ, their peers, and their adult leaders. We offer faith formation, service, and fellowship opportunities that enable youth to find their place in the church, the community, and the world.

Currently, youth ministries will be online until it’s safe to gather in-person. If possible, we may attempt small group/in-person activities in the event that we may do so safely.

PRISM (Grades 6 & 7)

Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:00 PM | ZOOM **
One small step… one big leap into youth group! 6th & 7th graders gather on Wednesdays for a time to build friendships through faith. We tackle some tough questions but we have lots of fun while we do it!

CONFIRMATION (Grades 8 & 9)

Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:00 PM | ZOOM **
Confirmation with St. Stephen’s Church is about so much more than making the decision to become a confirmed member of the Episcopal Church. It’s a spiritual journey. Our 8th & 9th graders often meet in grade distinct groups allowing for deeper conversations and friendships as the grade travels together.

SPECTRUM (Grades 10-12)

Sundays, 6:00-7:00 PM | ZOOM **
Spectrum is specially designed for our high school students to explore the deep questions of their faith, to serve the metro community, to discover their spiritual gifts, and create lasting friendships. Sunday evenings are a time to gear up for the week ahead and be rejuvenated by our peers and mentors. Moreover, Spectrum is a place to equip our young people with the tools necessary for a life-long spiritual journey with Christ.

** About ZOOM Security & Links to Children’s Ministry Gatherings

You may have heard of a trend called “Zoombombing” in which people interfere with ZOOM calls for the purpose of spreading hateful or threatening messages. To minimize this risk for our community, we’ve taken steps to secure our ZOOM gatherings. We no longer post links to ZOOM gathering publically. Instead, we share this information via email only.

We’d love your family to join us for this and other ZOOM gatherings held by our community. If you are not on our email list, join our list here.
