Westminster Youth (grades 7-12) enjoy a robust program of education, fellowship and music opportunities. The youth ministry program at Westminster is relational; encouraging faith exploration and formation through meaningful bible study, conversation and lasting relationships with friends and adult leaders.

Youth Theme

Grade 7 through Grade 12

Prophets of Change: Together in Times of Transition was the annual theme chosen by the PYC, Westminster's youth leadership team, for the 2020-2021 program year. Throughout the year active participants in the youth fellowship program explored the biblical Prophets, key messages in prophetic literature, environmental stewardship, understanding privilege, and mental health and self-care related to the pandemic.

Youth Fellowship will resume on Sunday, September 12.

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 returned to Fellowship Hall for closing circle, our ritual time of sharing and prayer.
