Our Youth Ministry is built on Scripture, Hebrews 6:19: “We have this hope as an anchor, firm and secure.  It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God.”

Every student is encouraged to come exactly as they are, so that they might know the love of God by experiencing the love of God so that you can be the love of God for someone else.

St. Paul’s Youth Ministry provides a variety of ways for middle school & high school students to get involved with other young people learning together to align their lives and relationships with Christ at the center.  It is never the wrong time to jump into youth ministry at St. Paul’s, all are welcome all of the time.  Please come and find out what youth ministry at St. Paul’s might look like for you.

Overview of Ministries:

ANCHOR – 9:30 am Sunday Mornings (Cafe opens at 9:15)

The first of many ways during the week you can connect.  This is where you can enter into a journey with Christ through music, teaching and small group discussions.  ANCHOR is your chance to meet new people, hear God’s word and build relationships with adults and students who care about you as an individual.  All youth (Grades 6-12) are welcome at ANCHOR and we meet in the youth room on Sunday mornings.  The curriculum for ANCHOR is based off of the scripture text being taught in the sanctuary during worship.

MIDHI & SRHI

MIDHI & SRHI happens weekly and is a time of fellowship and growth as we discover how life and faith intertwine.  There are always topics on the table for discussion and/or debate and of course we find plenty of time to play together.  We have some amazing retreats already scheduled for the fall and you certainly do not want to miss those.  MIDHI & SRHI is the best place to take those Sunday morning acquaintances to the next level and build lasting friendships with Christ at the center.

MIDHI meets on Wednesdays at 6-7:30 pm

SRHI meets on Sundays at 7-9 pm

COFFEE HOUR – Thursdays at 4:00 pm in Youth Room Cafe

At Coffee Hour, sometimes we play games but all the time we have quality conversations.  This small group is an awesome way to build new or strengthen old friendships and stay connected during the week.  You do not even have to like coffee; there are many cold drink options, hot cocoa and teas.  Bonus: Free Drink for First Timers!  Come and just hang out with us… it’s super fun!

CONFIRMATION CLASS of 2019 – Wednesdays at 7:30 pm

Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Confirmation Class meets on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm.   Students in 8th grade are invited and welcome to join us as we embark on a journey of faith and understanding of what it means to live our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ.  High School students who have never participated in the Confirmation Class experience are also invited to join us.  This is a time in your life to really own your personal decision to follow Christ and to discover more about your church family and the role it plays in your everyday life.  If you have questions or concerns about the class, please do not hesitate to call Tami or Jeff at 412.486.7006.

ADULTS: Are you looking for a place to share your energy and talents? 

We have lots of teenage students who would love to share their energy and talents with you.   This is a great year to get involved as a youth ministry advisor.  Our current advisor team would love to mentor you as you begin a relationship with our students.  So, if helping with the youth has ever been a glimmer in your eye, get in touch with our Youth Director, Tami Weisner, and she will find a way for you to connect.  Give it a try and guaranteed our students will find their way into your heart as you grow in faith together, having fun every step of the way.

There is always something going on in Youth Ministry – Come find out what’s in it for you!
