Youth Groups meet on Sundays from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm (teens in grades 6-8 on first and third Sundays, teens in grades 9-12 on second and fourth Sundays) for learning, projects, activities, food, fellowship, and fun. The youth are very active and involved in fundraisers and community outreach. Plan to support our teens at the annual Bread Sale, Casa d’Plymouth spaghetti dinner, Café Plymouth, and Plymouth Rocks, or be a part of our time together working at Matthew 25 or the Associated Churches Food Bank.
WNL (Wednesday Night Live) welcomes all youth to meet every Wednesday evening at the church from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We begin by sharing the Wednesday Night Live meal and then move to programs, speakers, and activities centered on service and learning projects.
Children's Choir: (Elementary School-aged children) Children prepare music and drama for worship service about once each month as scheduled. Musical experience includes instruments, movement, drama, and singing. We rehearse Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:00 and 6:30 to 7:00 pm (younger children admitted at the director's discretion.)
Youth Music Ensemble: (middle and high school youth) This ensemble is comprised of youth musicians, including singers and instrumentalists, who serve for worship services and coffee houses on a periodic basis. They rehearse Sundays after worship (around 11:30 am). Various opportunities are tailored to the abilities and interests of those participating.
Toddler and Infant Care is available during Sunday activities for children through age five. There is adult supervised care from 8:30 am through 12:30 pm every Sunday. Our staff Child Care Coordinator leads a group of adult and teen caregivers in the Infant and Toddler Room 11 on the main floor (opposite the church office).
Our Whole Lives/Sexuality and Our Faith (OWL) offers families, children, and teens a comprehensive educational process of gaining information and forming attitudes, beliefs, and values about sexual identity, relationships, and intimacy.
The Sexuality and Our Faith component helps participants clarify their values and beliefs and emphasizes the worth and dignity of each participant.
Our Whole Lives helps parents fulfill their role as the primary educators of their children on issues of sexuality and helps create a partnership between the family and the church through parent orientation and parent education programs.
Individuals who participate in the program will know that their church cares about sexuality as a God-given part of life. In the program, young people will build relationships with faithful adults who care about sexuality education and sexual development. The program offers comprehensive sexuality education, which is about much more than just anatomy and health. It is about faith, values, respect, emotions, and justice.
