Take a look below at all the events and activities that are going on with our Youth Group. Be sure to check back on this page for further details on all these events.
Sunday Night Youth Group
Sunday Night Youth Group has finished for the school year. We look forward to seeing you next fall, but in the meantime, check back here for any activities that are going on during the summer! Youth Group is open to all high school students and their friends. They are Sunday nights in Pope Benedict Activity Center from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
Teen Hangout happens every Tuesday in the Youth Ministry lounge. All high school students are invited to come hang out, eat, relax, play, and just be after school until 5:30 pm. There is a school bus that passes the church, so you can just hope on that one!
Teen Co-ed Softball
Our team is up and running and it’s amazing what a one year difference can make. It’s our first week and we already won a game! (Maybe it was a forfeit from the other team, but it’s a win!) We also lost a game, but we had fun, had a full bench, and we have a coaching staff that brings out the best in all the players. Our next game is Tuesday, May 28 at McMurray Elementary, come on out and support our team!
