St Francis Youth – Middle and High School
Contact: Rev. Laurel, (310) 375 4617, Ext 226, Associate for Youth and Spiritual Engagement
At St. Francis, youth are vital and valued members of our church family and they have much to contribute that enhances our community life. Whether through worship, in outreach, or participation in youth group, youth matter!
Youth Group is available for those in 6th through 12th grade. Crash! (grades 6-8) and eMerge (grades 9-12) gather weekly from September to June, alternating with the first and third Sundays from 11:30a-12:30p, and the second and fourth Sundays from 4:00p-6:00p. In addition to these scheduled times, youth are invited to participate in outreach opportunities such as our Great Egg Boil (where we boil 400+ eggs for the St. Luke’s Homeless Breakfast), field trips, and social outings.
We believe that our call as a church community is to provide a sacred and safe space in which our youth may gather to explore God, Self and Community. Youth Group is a place where one can be themselves and find acceptance and belonging; a place where youth learn to listen and are free to share their own truth or to explore hard questions. It is an intentional space into which we invite the Holy Spirit to speak to us, to move in our lives and hearts, and where God’s love is found, experienced and shared.
