Youth School Year Programs
During the school year, we have a host of programs specifically tailored to the spiritual needs of middle and high school students. This is where we try to live out our commitment to the Apostle’s teaching and fellowship, the breaking of bread and the prayers; this is where we proclaim the good news of God in Christ. We wish to learn about the Kingdom of God, and how we are each called to participate in Christ’s reign.

Sunday Mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Meet in the Church Office Break Room
Our Youth from 7th - 12th grade will meet during the Sunday School hour to prepare and plan for our Celebration Chapel for elementary students. This chapel service is held in Munds Hall Auditorium and is led by our Youth.
Youth Group for 6th-12th Grades
at the Youth House
Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings at the Youth House. (There will be other gatherings at other locations throughout the year, so be on the look-out for those.) Middle School (6th - 8th grades) will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Youth House. Then High School (9th- 12th grades) will join them for dinner at 7:30 p.m. Following dinner, Middle School’s time will be complete and High School will stay for their special Youth Group time. We ask congregation members and groups to help minister to our Youth by providing the weekly meal that they will share.
Typical Sunday Evenings in the Youth House:
- Middle School Youth Group (6th - 8th) 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
- Middle and High School Dinner Together 7:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Sometimes our schedule varies. We will give outreach opportunities, as well as participate in activities off campus.

Student Leadership Team
This dedicated group of High School students serves as relational ministers to our Middle School students. They meet twice a month on Sundays to study about Godly leadership and plan Middle School Youth. They then practice these leadership skills by facilitating games and giving talks. Taking the words of St. Paul to heart, these student leaders “set for the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
There are all sorts of special events that take place throughout the year. Here are just a few to keep your eyes open for:
One of the coolest games you’ll ever get to play. Space Marines and Aliens battle it out in this campus-wide event.
Join us as we proclaim the mystery of the Incarnation through this Good Shepherd tradition. Rehearsals begin Advent 1!
Super Bowl Party
Hangout with us on Super Bowl Sunday as we watch the big game on a ten foot screen with other area Episcopal Churches.
Help us use all the leavening in the church as we prepare for our Lenten fasts. We cook dinner, bury the Alleluias, and celebrate one last time before the Feast of the Resurrection.
Walk the way of the cross with us as we journey together through Jesus’ last days on Earth. The Youth always contribute a reflective service to this week, come help us make this year’s a special one.
This worship service is led by our youth as we recognize our acolytes and graduating seniors. This service is traditionally the first Sunday in May.
