Youth Groups – CRASH! and eMERGE

Who are we?

Join our Middle Schoolers at CRASH!, and our High Schoolers at eMERGE.

If you’re in middle school or high school, join Jeannie Cobb and other adult leaders every week from 4 – 6 on Sunday afternoons.

These hours will be filled with fun, games, Bible study, Pows & Wows, a special project, time with advisers, and times with friends! Bring a friend or two of your own!

New Sessions Start Sunday September 13th – Get Connected Sunday!

Contact: Jeannie Cobb

The groups have time together, and apart, so you can share with the kids in other age-groups, and also have time just to be together with others who know exactly what you’re talking about, whether it’s Middle School troubles (and who doesn’t have those?), or High School stress, and the move to college.

Sign up for weekly emails by contacting Jeannie.

What is CRASH!?

For students in 6th-8th grades.
Jesus taught us to pray:  “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, On earth as it is in Heaven.”  He calls us to work with God to make it true.  When heaven happens on earth, it’s a CRASH!

The program guides young people as they take the first steps of independence from their families and toward the path of adulthood.

 

What is eMERGE?Prayer circle 1 ed

For students in 9th-12th grades*.
This program is geared towards building on your independence, and looking ahead to the life you’ll be leading as an adult, and as you move away from home. Scary at times, but with support from God, your friends, and adults who love and care about you, it’s an exciting journey! It’s beautiful to witness as these young people ‘emerge’ into their new lives.

 

What about Confirmation for Teens?

Every other year we offer teens (minimum age 13) the opportunity to move toward confirmation* by joining a Confirmation Class. We will offer this again in the spring of 2016.

*Confirmation   A post-baptismal rite of mature commitment to Christ through prayers, the renewal of baptismal vows, and the laying on of hands by a bishop. It is usually preceded by a period of organized prayer, study, and instruction called a confirmation class.

In other words, deciding to declare that you claim your faith as your own, not just something your parents want you to do. The class looks at what it is that Episcopalians believe and gives lots of time of discussion and questions.
