In Genesis, God did not create a group of teens with a great youth leader. God created one man, one woman, and said, “Be fruitful and multiply,” thus a multi-generational family.
Every teenager needs an extended family of Christian adults – adults who can be a part of the cloud of witnesses that cheers them on. Church is where teenagers are exposed to these adults. An extended Christian family is a community of believers who affirm and encourage growth toward Christian maturity. Only church and family can provide Christian nurture from birth to old age – even death.
The youth of St. Peter’s are an integral part of our larger congregation. They are Sunday School teachers, Vacation Bible School leaders, communion assistants, ushers, readers, acolytes, sit on various committees as well as church council. Once a month we have a contemporary 11 am service which the youth are primarily responsible for.
In addition, we have a number of fun youth events each year. Some are just with the youth of St. Peter’s, at other times with youth from other churches.
Here at St. Peter’s our primary goal of family-based youth ministry is to equip young people to grow toward mature Christian discipleship.
Our youth begins at grade seven with Confirmation.
