Lent 2021 Youth Gatherings
Sundays February 28, March 7, March14, and March 21 from 4:30-5:30 pm
Grace youth in grades 6-12 will gather on Sunday afternoons to learn more about Lent! We'll talk about our most important relationships, and about how some Lenten practices might help us grow in relationship with others.
These sessions will be led by Wren Blessing and Stephen Crippen, and discussion groups (high school and middle school) will break out for small group conversation. Depending entirely on your comfort level, you may choose to attend masked and in person at Grace Church, or you can attend virtually through Zoom.
From 4:00-4:30 pm at church, we will have time for games outside, weather permitting. Please RSVP to Youth Ministry Coordinator Faith Dougherty so we can safely set up the meeting space.
We'll meet online from 4:30-5:30 pm.
As we begin to meet again...
Youth are active in our life at Grace in a variety of ways, leading music on Sundays, participating in study and art groups, serving as crew leaders for Grace Camp, directing our annual Christmas pageant, and serving as acolytes. Grace’s youth are especially invited to join in the following activities, which take place year-round.
Sunday Evening Gatherings: 5-7 pm
On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sunday of each month, youth in grades 6-12 gather for dinner, play, discussion, and worship.
Service Sunday: 11:15 am – 2 pm
On the 4th Sunday of each month immediately following the 9:30am liturgy, youth in grades 6-12 complete acts of service to care for creation and our surrounding community.
Crew Leaders for Grace Camp
Youth in grades 6-12 serve as leaders for Grace’s vibrant kids summer camp at Grace.
Please note that Camp Resurreccion will not take place in 2020.
Sandwiches for Seattle
Our 5th – 8th graders pack and distribute sack lunches in Seattle three to four times a year.
Acolytes serve in Grace’s Sunday morning liturgies, guiding us to listen and look for God’s spirit in our midst. Youth and children age 10 and older are welcome to join our acolyte team.
In July 2019, nine of Grace’s high schoolers embarked on a ten-day pilgrimage in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho with Bill Harper of Pilgrim Trekking and Wren Blessing. Information about next summer's pilgrimage will be forthcoming in early 2020.
