Student Ministry

(6th - 12th Grade)

Connected to a faith community St. John’s youth can call home, our goal is to build up spiritually grounded confident leaders and servants of God.

STUDENT MINISTRY

Confirmation

Confirmation is a two-year faith experience for our students to connect faith and life so that they can faithfully navigate the transition from youth to adult. The middle school years are full of opportunity, challenge, and decisions during which teens lay the foundation for the rest of their lives. Our program invites students into deeper relationships with God and one another -while leaving room for a lot of fun along the way.

The program includes one 3-week introductory module during 6th Grade and six 4-week learning modules during 7th and 8th Grade, as well as, Sunday night youth group and retreats for our 7th and 8th Graders.

Everything you need to know about The Well: Confirmation is in our Confirmation Handbook. For more information contact Pastor Laura Henrik.

Summer Mission Trip

Every year, we look forward to our middle school mission trip. Last year we went to Boone, NC where we were able to serve alongside community partners who work to provide sustainable aid. Some service projects included cutting wood for those who heat their home in Western, NC, assembling water filters to provide clean water for over ten years, as well as, serving at shelters, food banks, thrift stores and more.

FUEL

High School

Fuel is our student ministry for high-schoolers packed with weekly gatherings on Sunday evenings, service opportunities, retreats, trips, and more. Come join us in a place where you can be yourself and know that you belong.

Coming Up

DON’T COPY THE BEHAVIOR AND CUSTOMS OF THIS WORLD, BUT LET GOD TRANSFORM YOU INTO A NEW PERSON BY CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK. THEN YOU WILL LEARN TO KNOW GOD’S WILL FOR YOU, WHICH IS GOOD AND PLEASING AND PERFECT. (ROMANS  12:2)

There are a million ways to compare ourselves to other people. But the further we move away from comparison and toward contentment, the more we’ll discover, “there’s no one like me.” In September, our high school students will focus on a series called “Like Me.”

Youth kicks off Sept. 13. Middle School and High School will be at different times. Stay up to date on all youth news via email. If you would like to sign up to receive emails from Pastor Laura, please send her your email address at laura@stjohns-salisbury.org.

Summer Mission Trip

In 2019, we headed to Nashville, TN with Serve Boldly. We learned to accompany and serve our neighbor in a sustainable way, while deepening our understanding of God’s presence in our lives. During the mornings and afternoons, we participated in service and worship. Service opportunities included food banks, refugee ministries, and children’s centers. In the evenings, we had the opportunity to explore the city.
