St. Francis Youth – Middle and High School

Contact: Wayne Hastings (wayne@stfrancispalosverdes.org or 901-219-6564)

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!

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.

Youth Group is available for those in 6th through 12th grade:
Crash! (grades 6-8) and eMerge (grades 9-12).
