High School Youth

Welcome to SAPC’s high school youth group. We are open to all students in grades 9-12! This is a place where you are free to be you in a safe environment that allows you to stand at your fullest height!

Sunday School

At 9:30am every Sunday, Youth are invited to join our intergenerational Sunday School Class in the Chapel. This Fall, youth and parents will spend 10 weeks exploring our new series: Faith Tending- Rooted and Reaching. For four weeks the class will focus on Worship and for six weeks will be centered around the Bible. This class will be structured to be an inclusive learning environment for all ages. We hope the whole family will join!

Sunday and Friday Evenings

First Friday Game Night: On the First Friday of every month, youth ages 6th-12th grade are invited as we join with Providence Presbyterian for a night of games and fellowship. Game night is from 6 - 9pm and dinner is provided. Please see Margo’s weekly youth emails to RSVP and check if Providence or Selwyn is the hosting site.

Second Sunday Service: On the second Sunday of every month, youth and tweens are invited and encouraged to join the whole church in a mission project following worship. Please see Margo’s youth emails or church publications for details about our monthly project! 

Youth Group: On the third and fourth Sunday each month, 6th -12th grade youth are welcome to join us in the Fellowship Hall from 5:30 - 7pm. Youth parents and friends of the youth group,  take turns cooking for our youth. The meal is from 5:30 - 6pm. Then from 6 - 6:30 the group will split into smaller High School and Middle School groups for education and programming. We will end each night with 30 minutes of recreation and fellowship time before the 7pm pick-up.
