All Saints Youth
All Saints Youth are an amazing group of individuals with compassion and fun in their hearts. As John 3:18 says, "Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." The Youth of All Saints have shown a great desire to serve their community. With the help of our Youth and other generous young people, we aim to be a welcoming and God-like ministry through outreach and fellowship. We hope to inspire the love of Christ in all people!
Youth group is up and running with mostly outdoor events. We hope you can join in on the fun! Click here for an updated fall schedule.
Crop Walk - Sunday, November 14 - 3:00 PM
All Saints Youth will be leading the charge in helping to feed the hungry by participating in the Richmond Crop Walk. All are welcome to join us – adults, children, friends & family members! Weather permitting, our walk will begin at 3:00 PM on Belle Isle on Sunday, November 14. Our goal is to raise $1000 to help families struggling with hunger throughout the world through the mission of the Church World Service.
Youth: It's up to us to raise the money! Ask your friends and their parents, share on your social media and ask your parents to do the same. The attached QR code directs everyone to the same page - and they make it easy to send emails and share online.
We’ll meet at the Belle Isle parking lot on Tredegar St and walk the suspension bridge over the James River and loop around the island. Julie & Blair Wilcox will lead our youth team, and we'll have pizza and drinks after the walk!

The youth group at All Saints is a family of middle and high school students who regularly enjoy fellowship and outreach projects in service to God. Everything that youth group does is grounded in their faith. Through various meetings, trips, and activities ranging from service projects to good ole’ fun, Youth Group is a great way to have some good times, make trusted friends, and live out your faith. Your middle and high school youths are invited to join us for games, meals, outreach and fellowship. Sign up for our newsletter here.
Youth Education (On hold due to COVID-19)
Sunday School Classes for youth meet at 9:30am. 6th, 7th & 8th grade meet upstairs in rooms 201-203. With a combination of music, games, activities, and discussion, we focus on building relationships within the group in a fun, safe, and stimulating environment. We also use portions of the lectionary based curriculum called “Living the Good News”. 9th-12th graders meet in our Youth room. They discuss current events and how those relate to the lectionary.
Youth Confirmation Class runs on Sundays during our program year in the library. This class is open to all 9th thru 12th graders who are interested in pursuing their Confirmation. Contact The Rev. Penny Nash for more information.
Acolyting gives youth the change to actively assist with the worship of God. If you are in middle or high school, you are invited to become an acolyte at All Saints. The term acolyte is commonly used a synonym for “server”, but acolytes do more than that. They begin the worship service by leading the procession in with the cross, torches, flags and banners and help bring the congregation into a time of worship. Beginner acolytes will receive training and start with basic tasks. As acolytes gain experience, their duties and responsibilities increase and include assisting with Communion and Baptism. Acolytes have a “front row” seat to all celebrations of the Liturgy. In addition to the solemn and sacred times of worship, there is time to laugh and make friends before and after the service, too. Other than being in grades 6-12, there are no other requirements to become an acolyte. Schedules are flexible and can work with a family’s schedules.
