Middle School Ministry
It’s no secret that the middle school years can be a tough time for students, but it is also the perfect time for them to get serious about their faith. At All Saints, we desire to help students understand the role God wants to play in their life as they transition into the teen years. Our hope is that during the middle school years our students will develop a firm foundation in the love and truth of the Gospel.
Through corporate worship, small group discussion, teaching, service projects, and retreats, our students are met daily by the work of God in their lives.
High School Ministry
High School can be the greatest years of your life (or so a lot of adults tell us!). It also can be pretty stressful with school work, relationship drama, sports, church, college decisions, etc. We, at All Saints Church, hope to be a place that you can come to find answers, healing, and hope. We believe you have a lot to offer – not just “down the road” – but TODAY! We believe “When a student embraces the cross the repercussions can be felt throughout the church.”
The journey can be long and difficult… but also true and worth our attention and efforts.
We study God’s Word, hang out, laugh, pray, and discuss what’s on our hearts and minds.
Our Young Adult Ministry (also known as “20s & 30s”) is a group of people who are interested in going deeper in our faith, serving our community and building relationships with other folks around us. You can be single, married, with or without kids, tall, short, male, female or any combination of those!
Confirmation Classes for Students
Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. At confirmation, we “confirm” the baptismal vows that were made on our behalf by parents, godparents, and church members. Confirmation is open to students currently in 7th – 12th grades who have been baptized.
In preparation for this important milestone, we encourage one or more of the following:
- Regular attendance at Sunday worship services
- Active membership in at least one of the church’s youth-based activities [choir, CLUB (middle school), CREW (high school), Sunday school, serving as an acolyte]
- Participation in the All Saints Parish Retreat (January)
Each confirmee has a sponsor. We generally suggest that the sponsor be an adult that has been involved with or has influenced the confirmee’s spiritual growth.
Confirmation classes for students are typically held February – March. We strongly encourage attendance at all of the Sunday confirmation classes which uses a greatly condensed and concentrated curriculum. In the event that an unavoidable commitment prevents participation at any class, we will work with you to schedule a make-up session.
