Youth

Buckhall welcomes teens, helping them grow in Christian faith in a loving, nurturing environment through educational activities and joyful experiences.  Youth are valued members of our church family.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR GRADES 6 - 8: 

Sunday School hours are 10:00-11:00 where a “hands-on and hearts-on” approach of adult leaders guides the group through serious topics, including study of Scriptures, prayer, and recognizing God’s presence in their lives.  

SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR GRADES 9 – 10: 

Sunday School teachers work with these high school youth to help them engage more deeply in the work of knowing themselves and how they related to God and to society.  At the end of their year in “Journey to Adulthood” (J2A), these students prepare for and participate in Confirmation, when each one makes a “public affirmation of his or her faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism.”

SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR GRADES 11-12: YOUNG ADULTS IN CHURCH (YAC)

The curriculum for YAC is meant to prepare the teens for independent Christian living.  Here, they research opportunities for ministry within the congregation and each begins serving actively in the larger church community.  In addition to individual projects, the group plans a service project for the congregation in which they all participate.  Each YAC member presents his or her credo, a public affirmation of beliefs and commitments.

BUCKHALL YOUTH GROUP FOR GRADES 6 - 12

The Buckhall Youth Group meets every Sunday evening at 6 p.m. for fun and fellowship, including dinner and a program, service project, film and planning for trips and mission work.  They enjoy “Popcorn Theology,” watching a popular firm and discussing it in a Christian context.
