YOUTH MINISTRY – JUNIOR HIGH

Youth in Grades 6-8 will soon be welcome to take part in S.A.L.T. (Stand And Live Truth).  Fun activities involving the Sunday Gospel reading or a seasonal theme are followed by group discussions, and ways to apply what they learn to their daily lives.  We will follow up with a game.  S.A.L.T. dates will soon be posted on the Youth bulletin board in the narthex, on the church website, and in the weekly church bulletin. 

If you have questions about these youth programs, please contact Kathy Waite, our Youth Minister, at 716-491-8269 or youth@stamelia.com

We welcome anyone who is a recent high school graduate through age 39.  We meet on the Final Fridays of most months, either on campus or out in the world, to keep our young church connected to Jesus.  Past activities include hiking to the Eternal Flame or Devil’s Hole, Bible Study, a visit to Allentown Art Festival, volunteering at a soup kitchen, kickball or soccer against nearby churches, and making soup for Outreach volunteers. 

Friends are always welcome.  For more information, call/text Kathy Waite at 716-491-8269 or youngadults@stamelia.com
