Youth of middle and high school age are invited to join us for activities, reflection, service and other projects, games and outreach activities.
Be sure to see notes about Youth Sunday School and activities in each Sunday's bulletin.
Our youth are involved in virtually all aspects of church life at Home Moravian. From decorating the Sanctuary during Advent, to playing in the band during the Easter Sunrise service, to serving as elected representatives on the church governing boards, youth enrich and are enriched by involvement in our community of faith. Our youth have many opportunities for Christian education and faith exploration, music, fellowship and service.
For more information, contact Margaret Norris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A confirmation class is also offered every other year to prepare our 8th and 9th graders for full church membership.
Home Church youth have a wealth of opportunities to explore and develop their musical gifts. We offer band lessons for those of any age interested in learning to play a musical instrument. Wednesday afternoon choir includes sixth and seventh graders. Each year a Youth Sunday worship service, which includes special music, is designed and led by the youth. Christmas Lovefeast services and the Easter Sunrise Service also provide opportunities for youth singers and musicians. Individual youth also provide worship leadership as Sanctuary choir members, instrumental soloists, and handbell participants.
Youth plan annual mission trips and conduct fundraising activities to help support the trips. Youth involved in the fellowship also plan and conduct a full Sunday morning worship service once a year, usually in the spring.
Church Boards and Service
Two youth representatives serve for one-year terms on both the Board of Elders and the Board of Trustees. And youth may be asked to serve as readers during Holy Week services, as ushers for worship services, and as dieners (servers) for lovefeasts.
