Youth Programs

SHYF

The senior high youth are an active group, whose purpose is to grow together as we explore various issues and ideas that are relevant to high schoolers while looking through the lens of the Mennonite faith. They also meet at different times throughout the year for service projects, fundraisers, or to just hang out. In addition, they participate in winter retreats at Camp Friedenswald and each summer we alternate between service trips and the MCUSA Youth Convention.

JHYF

The junior high youth meet regularly to discuss how they can both own their faith and use it to transform the world around us. They also meet at other times throughout the year for special events with the SHYF, service opportunities, or to hang out with friends. They also travel to Camp Friedenswald for winter retreats.

Mentoring

Youth ages twelve and older are paired up with an adult in the congregation. Each pair spends some time together each month in ways that suit their interests and schedules. There are also 2-3 larger mentor events that take place each year.
