Youth Theme

Grade 7 through Grade 12

Rekindle is the theme chosen by the PYC, Westminster's youth leadership team, for the 2021-2022 program year. Throughout the year active participants in the youth fellowship program will explore the Gospel of Luke and the many ways that we are being called to rekindle our faith, health and relationships.

Fellowship

Westminster has two youth fellowship groups: a Junior High group (grades 7 & 8) and a Senior High group (grades 9 - 12). The two groups have regular meetings on Sunday evenings enjoying a well-balanced program of activities that focus on fellowship, worship, study and small group conversations.

A typical Sunday evening schedule begins with dinner, a gathering time for singing, and introduction to our topic for the night. Youth then move into small groups for activities and conversation. At the end of the evening all the youth return to Fellowship Hall for closing circle, our ritual time of sharing and prayer.
