MY Group (Middle Youth) grades 7-8 meet each week on Sunday during the school year from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. for faith formation and fellowship. This program is an opportunity for our youth to begin to expand their ideas of what it means to be a person of faith and to be a disciple. This experience takes the foundation the youth learned in Church School and helps each student develop their own identity as a part of South Church, along with understanding our common call to serve God in the world by loving our neighbor and seeking justice and peace in all that we do.
The teaching team engages our youth in creative ways–field trips, service opportunities, videos, special projects, and discussions–with the goal of providing a foundation for the youth as they question, explore, and mature. , we try to ‘meet the youth where they are at.’ We embrace humor, play, and friendships, as well as challenging them with new ideas and models of what it means to live with integrity and compassion in our complex, interfaith, chaotic world.
