Youth Programming During the Year

Our youth programs involve youth from  Middle School and High School. Led by Andrew and Sarah, a typical week in the life of a youth includes Sunday school (9:30am), Sunday evening youth group, Chill (middle school), Anchor (high school) and rehearsals for the youth choir.

Throughout the school year, the weekends are chock-full of goodness with retreats, lock-ins, concerts, and service days. The summers are packed with mission trips, conferences and other fun activities.


 

Youth News

YouthNews

The YouthNews is a publication that is published three times a year and provides information about all of the youth ministry events happening during that season.  We encourage you to print it off, or stop by church and pick on up, and hang it next to your calendar.

Youth Ministry at Wayne

 


Sunday School 

Sunday school is a place where your youth can deepen their understanding of God by learning more about scripture, and God's blessings.  This begins September 10.

6th and 7th will meet Sundays at 9:30am in room 203. 

8th graders have Confirmation on Sundays at 9:30am in the Wayne Senior Center (by the train station).

High School will meet Sundays in the Gryphon's Upper Room.

Summers: youth worship with their families 

 

Youth Group

Our youth groups for our middle school youth and our high school youth is a little more high energy than Sunday School.  On Sunday nights fom 6-8pm we gather in rooms 208/209 to hang out with our friends, eat, play games, and talk about how faith and the world around us meet.  Some nights we also worship, or participate in service, or just play games all night.  Hold onto your socks, because you never do know what you are getting yourself into each week you come to youth group!

Youth Ministry Kickoff Party is September 8 from 6-8pm, and all youth and their families are invited!   

Confirmation - Starting in the Fall

If you are in 8th grade or have not been confirmed, this is a place for you to enter into deeper thought and understanding about the Presbyterian Church and what you believe.  This class will meet in the Senior Center on Sundays at 9:30am.  Parents, come to our brief information session on September 8 at 10:40am at the Senior Center.

Youth Choir

Do you enjoy singing with friends or singing in chorus at school?  If so we have the place for you.  Come join youth choir, all youth are invited on Sunday nights just before youth group at 5pm.  The first practice is September 8.  If you have questions or are interested in getting your youth signed up contact Tim Evers: tevers@waynepres.org.  You can also check out their webpage HERE.  

Anchor 

High schoolers, starting September 24 from 6-7:30pm we will be hanging out at the Hostetters' house every Tuesday.  What will we be doing?  Some baking, playing video games, watching movies, catching up on life over coffee or tea, cracking up over a game of fishbowl, cooking hot dogs over bonfires... really just enjoying life together.  Contact Sarah to learn more and to get directions to our house: shostetter@waynepres.org.  All high schoolers are welcome!

Youth Worship Leadership Team

Starting later this fall, a group of youth will be teaming up to help lead worship each sunday in the 11am service.  They will learn how to write prayers and liturgy, and will be supported as they help lead worship.  Contact Andrew to learn more: ahostetter@waynepres.org.

 

Love Your Neighbor Team

Also starting later this fall is a group that will be working with Sarah and the Mission Committee to plan and lead church wide days of service (called Love Your Neighbor).  The first Love Your Neighbor service day is November 30th from 9am-1pm and is open to people of all ages.  To join Sarah is helping to plan these events, please contact her: shostetter@waynepres.org.
