Middle and High School Youth

It’s fun to be a young person here at Lynnewood. 6th-12th graders attend worship service at least once a month, usually at the 10:30 first-Sunday-of-the-month service, where they often help serve communion and read scripture.

Middle school and high school youth have fun events in addition to Sunday school. They meet for movies, discussions, scavenger hunts, and field trips. Eating is usually a part of youth activities — no surprise about that!

Both groups can attend the summer Sierra Service Project (SSP), a hands-on mission trip building homes and bringing hope to people in need.

Our youth are looking forward to Summer 2018 SSP at Smith River and San Diego.

The youth can also participate in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine, where they “go hungry, so others don’t have to” (see Lynnewood 30 Hour Famine).

See the Lynnewood Lines in Resources to find information about this month’s Youth events.

Youth needed to help with Vacation Bible School at St. Clare’s Episcopal Church on Hopyard.  VBS runs July 30 to August 3, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 each day.  Help is needed as  crew leaders or station leaders.  Contact Diana if you can help.

Save the date for SSP Sunday – August 19th.  This year’s SSP crews will lead our worship service.
