family_ministry_highschool_01High school programs at WCC are active ministries, a sacred journey of growth, hope and fellowship. High-energy, impactful and hands-on, they engage youth in God’s world guided by God’s word. Teens come to know the Bible as a relevant, dynamic guide for navigating life’s ups and downs. Believing that faith is meant to be experienced, they roll up their sleeves and lean in, building houses, preparing meals, restoring the environment. At WCC, teens’ minds and hearts are nourished as much as their souls.

High School Programs
Confirmation is a meaningful juncture along a teen’s spiritual path. A time for reflection, freshmen spend their confirmation year discerning what faith means to them and the ways in which they are called to bring God’s love into the world. Confirmands delve into the beliefs and traditions of faith, considering how Christianity impacts their own lives. While deeply personal, confirmation is also a time of shared experiences and enduring friendships. Freshmen meet every other Sunday throughout the school year from 11:30 AM-1:00 PM, sharing in lunch, learning, laughter and love. Students join the church as full members on Confirmation Sunday, a memorable and celebratory service lead entirely by the confirmation class. For meeting dates (Sundays) and times, click here.

Youth Group provides a much-needed break from the busyness of life, a chance to sit back, relax and refuel with friends. School, sports, artistic pursuits, after-school activities and homework leave teens little time to reflect on how and where their lives are going. Youth Group provides students with an opportunity to discuss issues that matter to them, to respect one another while expressing their own views and to grow together as a faith family. High schoolers gather in the Youth Room from 11:30am-1:00pm on alternating Sundays, enjoying lunch, thought-provoking conversation, high-spirited group games and community-service activities.

Youth Leadership brings great insight and perspective to our church, and helps ensure WCC remains a vibrant community. Opportunities to get involved abound—from Church School teachers and Nursery supervisors, Board leaders and Committee members, Deacons and preachers, worship service musicians, ushers and mission program participants. No matter where your interests lie or how much time you have to contribute, there’s a place for you here.

Summer Mission Trips provide an opportunity for WCC youth and their friends to put faith into action. With sweat-stained brows, paint-streaked shirts and muddy hands, they restore hope as they rebuild homes, discovering that they are blessed with the love and power to improve lives and change the world. Grounded in love and Christian service, WCC’s mission trips transport teens to communities struggling with poverty, injustice and neglect. Here, they connect and form friendships with those that they serve and come to realize that they is more that draws us together than drives us apart.

All High School Programs are lead by our Director of Youth Ministries and adult supervisors in a fun, safe and respectful environment. Friends are always welcome, so bring yours along!
