Other Youth Opportunities
Yearly Youth Mission Trips (summer)
Every summer the Christ Church Youth embark on one or two mission trips to places across the United States. The summer of 2022 was a successful mission for the youth. For information about the possible Mission Trips in the future, please contact our Youth Minister, Blake Burns at email@example.com.
The Acolyte Program provides our young people with an opportunity to participate in our liturgical life. All baptized persons, in the third grade or above, are eligible. Adults also serve in this ministry. Once trained, acolytes assist at Sunday services and at other services throughout the year. Their ministry is to lead the processions and to assist the priests during the service. To find out more, contact Kathy Turner firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to being an acolyte, a young person at Christ Church has many opportunities to participate in the service. Youth can be greeters and ushers – helping adults greet worshipers, hand out bulletins, help people find seats, and pass the offertory plates. For those youth who are good readers, we invite you to train and serve as a reader or intercessor. Teens who are at least 16 years old and have been confirmed can learn how to be a Chalice Bearer (Eucharistic Minister). To find out more, please contact Blake Burns at email@example.com.
Boy Scout Troop 193 is sponsored by Christ Episcopal Church. The troop meets on Monday nights at 7:00pm in the Commons Room throughout the school year. All boys at least 11 years old or in 5th grade or above are invited to join us for a meeting and to learn more about our troop! The boys learn leadership skills in addition to camping, hiking, whitewater rafting, and canoeing. Contact Matthew Weigel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
