Youth Pilgrimage

From the time of the very early Church until today, Christians have made pilgrimages to holy places as a part of their discipline and life of faith. Long before the notion of vacations, holidays, and mission trips, individuals within the Christian tradition set out to see the places where our Lord and his saints walked, slept, prayed, and preached the Good News. We invite our tenth graders to journey on a pilgrimage each year.

Our 2017 youth pilgrimage will travel to Wales, June 12 - 19. Follow their journey via the blog »

Urban Adventure

Each summer our rising tenth graders embark on a three-day "Urban Adventure" in Washington, DC. Students learn to navigate a large city and travel outside their comfort zone. Our 2017 adventure will be June 8 - 10. Read Mary Clark's reflection on the 2015 adventure »

Youth Sunday

One Sunday each year we invite our youth to lead worship. This is a wonderful opportunity for them to grow in their faith, and offers all of us an inspiring glimpse at the future leaders of the Church in the world.
