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 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.
Confirmation Class for 2022 has begun. To inquire about the next class, Email The Rev. Penny Nash.
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.
