St. Francis Youth Group
(Middle School and High School)
Contact: Wayne Hastings (firstname.lastname@example.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.
During the School Year
September through May, every Sunday afternoon from 4:00p-6:00p. We meet in the Youth Room at the far end of the Parish Hall.
During the COVID-19 “Safer at Home” orders, we meet over Zoom teleconferencing. See the calendar (below) for coming events.
During the Summer Break
Youth Group does not meeting regularly during the Summer break months of June, July, and August. We typically plan one or two events such as a Family BBQ or beach day. And we continue doing our Friday evening Egg Boil every other month. See the calendar (below) for coming events.
Field Trips, Outreach, and More
Youth are also invited to participate in outreach opportunities such as our Great Egg Boil (where we boil 150 eggs for the St. Luke’s Homeless Breakfast), field trips, and social outings.
