St. John Youth Ministry
Build. Grow. Serve. 
Welcome to our page!
Youth are important to our church and to the Body of Christ as a whole. They are the next leaders of the world, and we are here to encourage, motivate, listen to, and build them up in a strong relationship with Christ as they go out and experience what life has to offer.
This program is for students in 6th through 12th grade. 
What is our Mission? 
Our mission follows three simple steps: build, grow, and serve. We build up youth in a faithful relationship with Christ through fellowship, Bible studies, open conversations, and worship. We then grow in our relationships with each other as we experience life together through youth group nights, large events, and other fun activities. Lastly, we follow the call to love and serve our neighbor through mission work, service projects, and being mindful about reaching out and sharing the Gospel.
Youth Activities: 
Jr./Sr. High Youth Group Nights – Our youth group runs every Sunday night from 6:30-8:00pm here at the church. These nights consist of icebreakers, Bible talks, and fun games and activities! Open to both Jr. and Sr. High students.
National Youth Gathering 2022 – The next Gathering will be held on July 9-13, 2022 in Houston, Texas. The theme for this event will be “In All Things” which focuses on the Bible passage from Colossians 1:15-20. The Gathering provides a unique faith experience for youth and adults through concerts, mass events, inspirational speakers, education, games, activities, fellowship with over 25,000 other youth, and so much more! SJL will be taking a group to the Gathering next year – if your youth are interested in going, reach out to DCE Cassidy! 
Fundraisers: St. John youth participate in various fundraisers throughout the year. The funds we raise benefit our youth group by allowing us to do fun activities together and participate in spiritual events that help us grow in our faith. We are always thankful for everyone’s support and generosity!
