Youth Sunday 2017

Youth Sunday is our annual worship service where the youth plan and lead all aspects of our worship that morning. This year’s Youth Sunday is April 30th at 11 am (one service that day).

Schedule for Preparation

  1. April 9th We will take a look at the theme for Youth Sunday during normal Youth and each Small Group will begin planning the part of worship they will be leading. (This does not include confirmands.)
  2. April 23rd Small Groups will practice leading their parts of the worship service in the sanctuary.
  3. April 30th We will meet at 8:30 am for final preparation and breakfast together.


This year’s scripture readings are:

  1. Acts 2:14a, 36-41

  3. 1 Peter 1:17-23
  4. Luke 24:13-35
