WELCOME TO TODAY!

At Sherwood Community Friends Church, we approach youth ministry with the goal of practicing and highlighting the Kingdom of God. Active spirituality doesn’t have to wait until adulthood; rather, we encourage youth to study the Scriptures, Jesus, and aspects of our faith tradition within the context of a vibrant community.

THE CONVERSATION

second sundays at 9:30a.m., grades 6-12

meets in the youth room

Discipleship classes traditionally have been an opportunity for excellent Bible teaching, and ours is no exception. Often times the Bible is described as boring by youth—but we aim to show the dynamism and relevance of  Scripture for our lives.

YOUTH FELLOWSHIP

third sundays, grades 6-12

meets in the youth room

Youth Fellowship is a casual opportunity to be in community with other believers. Each gathering varies in form. We incorporate Sacred Scripture exercises, prayer exercises, share testimonies, and speak to matters our youth are looking to discuss. The Youth are excused around 11:00a.m. and meet during a portion of the worship service.

BIBLE QUIZZING

september to march, grades 6-12, Sundays at 1 p.m.

meets in the youth room

Bible Quizzing is program that emphasizes Scripture knowledge with the added fun of competition. Students involved in the quizzing program participate in quiz meets to test their knowledge against other Friends churches. The season runs from September to March and includes weekly practices, four quiz meets, and a retreat.

YOUTH LEADERS

Our youth workers are a group of individuals who highly value the youth community of SCFC. These remarkable people give up their evenings and weekends to show love and model spiritual maturity to our students. Our youth workers are serious about the role of Jesus in our everyday lives as well as the importance of fun in healthy communities. Each volunteer undergoes an application process, abuse prevention training, and a background check to ensure the safety of our youth.
