Youth Ministries

Saint Paul Youth

Youth Group is a safe space for all youth and young people to be their best selves. We offer a place free from judgment where together we can gain perspective and grow in our relationships with each other.

We strive to create a welcoming and encouraging community by providing shared learning experiences, active community engagement and opportunity for fellowship. The foundation of all of this is the acknowledgement of God’s presence in our lives and through the example of Jesus Christ we can grow together in both understanding and faith.
