The people of Saint Thomas believe that the youth of our church should not only have one person to mentor them. And because of the baptismal vows we have taken and that we reaffirm every time we attend a baptism, we all promise to uphold each child in their life in Christ. In this spirit, our ministry to the youth incorporates the whole parish in Youth Ministry Teams for our Middle and High School youth members.
Saint Thomas' Minister for Youth, Katie Cosby was hired in the summer of 2015. Katie works to support the Youth Ministry Teams in their work, and help to keep our fabulous young people connected and integrated into the life of the parish. The Youth Ministry Team (YMT) at St. Thomas' meets regularly for prayerful reflection and planning, finding ministry with youth to be a key part of their own spiritual growth. The YMT strives to provide opportunities in the core areas of fellowship, learning, offerings, and worship. Please contact Darren to express an interest in joining the YMT to serve our youth and feed yourself along the way with their wisdom, energy and spirit!
Youth Group membership starts at 6th grade. Our Middle School group is open to youth grades 6-8. We serve youth in 10th to 12th grade in our Upperclass group, with the 9th graders having their own Faith Exploration youth group beginning in the Fall of 2015! Confirmation will be available to youth who have been active in the 9th grade Faith Exploration classes and activities.
