St. Mary's Youth
We are passionate about strengthening the Body of Christ through our 5th thru 12th grade students. We believe in an environment that is grounded in Biblical study of the life of Christ and open dialogue on how Christ's life impacts our daily lives, families, and friendships. We have committed group of leaders, parents, and volunteers who create and plan studies, mission work, fellowship events and more... all to help deepen the faith of our youth.
CLUB 56 / Grades 5-6
During the Christian Education program year, 5th and 6th graders participate in Level III of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd curriculum.
We meet once a month as group from September through May. Please Kelley Cain or Hill Weathers for more information.
Jr. High / Grades 7-8
During the Christian Education program year the 7th and 8th graders study the "Re:Form" curriculum designed to empower youth to truly explore their faith from many different angles.
7th & 8th grade also has a Sunday night small group that meets at 5 p.m. ( hosted at the home of the Amasons) and open all to students in those grades. See more information below. Meets on these Sunday Evenings: Nov. 5 & 26; Dec 10 & 17. Come for dinner, games, and a short Bible lesson! Led by Douglas Logan and Hayden Rathel.
Sr. High / Grades 9-12
During the Christian Education program year Sr. High youth use the "Can I Ask That?" curriculum from Sticky Faith. "Teenagers are tired of vague, superficial, or nonexistent answers to their tough questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Just when they’re capable of diving into the deep end of their faith, all too often the church keeps them splashing around in shallow waters. As eight years of Sticky Faith research has shown, it’s not doubt or hard questions that are toxic to faith. It’s silence."
