Jr. High Youth Ministry
The Jr. High youth enjoy interactive Bible studies that are relevant and immediately applicable to their everyday lives. Our rotating two-year curriculum provides a strong biblical base of faith for our Jr. High Youth prior to entering the high school years. We meet from 10:10 to 11:10 a.m. in the Youth Center.
From October to March, during our Wednesday Community Nights, come hang out from 6:45 to 7 p.m. in the Youth Center. From 7 to 8 p.m., join us for a time of interactive learning through teaching, sharing, discussions, and prayer. The first Wednesday of each month is a gym night.
Service Projects, Retreats & Activities
Throughout the year, we participate in a variety of service projects, including World Visions' fight against hunger and volunteering at church outreach events and in SMC's Children's Ministry. Yearly retreats and monthly activities keep our youth connected and energized!
Youth Mentor Program
As each youth enters seventh grade, they are invited to choose an adult from the congregation to be a mentor for them throughout their junior and high school years. This adult builds a special connection to the youth, to encourage them spiritually and to walk beside them as a role model.
Baptism classes are offered by the Youth Pastor for youth interested in baptism and exploring membership at SMC. The topics discussed include the basics of Christian faith, the Bible, the Anabaptist faith, and the impact of being a follower of Jesus Christ in daily life.
