Youth Formation

St. Bart's welcomes all 6th-12th graders to explore our faith, have loads of fun, and help those less fortunate through service.

Youth CREW

CREW stands for Continuously Riding the Eternal Wave.

Wednesdays 6-8 p.m. during the school year

Middle and high school youth enjoy a meal and fellowship followed by games, learning and small group activity. Contact the Rev. Mary Lynn Coulson for more information.

Sundays 9-10 a.m., year-round

Kind of like Wednesday, but on Sunday! We share community and reflect on faith and scripture together. This program is offered between services so youth and families can attend either the 8 a.m. or 10:15 a.m. service together. Contact the Rev. Mary Lynn Coulson for more information.

Confirmation Class

High School Students
In confirmation, a baptized Christian makes "a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop." (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 857)

Confirmation class begins in September and is a time of preparation, examination, and exploration into our faith and life as a Christian. Those completing the class will be confirmed into the faith by the Bishop in June. Contact the Rev. Mary Lynn Coulson for more information about the Confirmation Class.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a fun-filled week of games, crafts, snacks, and, of course, Bible lessons. We connect God's love to every activity, so children experience God in creative ways. Middle and high school students are welcome (and encouraged) to volunteer at VBS - it is a great way to share your love of God with children who look up to you. Find out more about Vacation Bible School at St. Bart's.
