Faith Formation

5th & 6th Grade
During the school year, 5th & 6th grades meet weekly in the youth center. During these two years, youth will dig into God’s Word, both the Old and New Testament, to build a foundation of knowledge and apply it to their lives. We meet on Mondays from 7:00-8:15 p.m.

7th & 8th Grade
Teens meet bi-weekly in the youth center, which allows for intimate small groups and building community within their grade-level. Their focus is knowing Jesus and becoming His disciples. 7th & 8th grades participate in a two-year Confirmation preparation program with an emphasis on evangelization. Their “off-weeks” are spent learning & growing with their parents or Confirmation sponsor with materials provided by the Purpose Confirmation program. They also complete Acts of Service during their 8th grade year as training grounds to be a disciple of Christ. We meet on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Summer Events

Open Youth Center Youth are welcome to hang out on the patio, play video games, ping pong, foosball, watch a movie, play board games or whatever else we can come up with to build community. Rachael will provide snacks.

Service Saturdays Throughout the summer of 2021, in lieu of a Mission Trip, we will be participating in Service Saturdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m. We will be serving local organizations, such as Kids Food Basket of Muskegon, Love Inc., and our own parishioners through yard clean ups and prayer during adoration. We will meet at the Youth Center and then go out into the community. You can find the calendar of events here.
