Youth at St. George’s
We love youth at St. George’s: some of the smartest and engaged and most challenged folks in our society fall into this category. We love the enthusiasm, the questions, and the passion youth bring to the table, and their willingness to encounter, engage, and wrestle with some of life’s most difficult topics.
Youth Group meets the last Sunday of the month at the church from 5:00 - 7:30 pm and includes dinner. Please RSVP by noon on the day of by email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 250-218-7641
Youth group is a safe and inclusive place no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. You are welcome if you attend this church or another church, and you are welcome if you don’t attend any church. There is no cost and no pressure, just open minded discussion and fun!
