Youth and Teens
Saint James' Youth group meets on campus on the 2nd Sunday of every month from 6:30-8:30pm. All young people, 6th grade and above, are very welcome to join us for a time of fellowship and exploration of the Episcopal Church.
We are presently following a course called Confirm Not Conform (CnC). This course is designed to help young people explore the Christian faith, the Episcopal Church, and the world around them from their own experience and perspective. We have chosen this course because it honors the young person's need to forge a personal identity and make a choice about how to live out that identity.
As well as being our youth group program, CnC will be the course of preparation for confirmation. Those students in 8th grade or above as of September 2012 who wish to go forward for confirmation and have participated in the CnC course will make a pilgrimage to Grace Cathedral in November 2012 for the confirmation ceremony.
Everyone is very welcome at St James' Youth. Joining us and attending CnC events does not commit you to confirmation – it is a great opportunity to explore and ask questions about church and your faith (and to hang out with others doing the same).
