High School Youth

Youth group meets twice a month for regular gatherings, goes on fun trips, and participates in regional, synodical, and national gatherings. Our focus is faith building, fellowship, and service. Youth group is for everyone, even if they are not members of St. Paull’s and youth are encouraged to bring friends.

The Senior High Youth go to Ocean City Maryland for a weekend of service projects, faith-filled discussions, and relationship-building in small groups.  RoadTrip includes workshops and networking for adults, as well as opportunities to worship together.  New friends are made and old friendships are renewed from throughout our synod!  It’s a blessed time spent learning how God is speaking to and through us– to the world.

Proverbs 22:6 Grants

Two graduating seniors, both part of the St. Paul’s family since infancy, have been awarded 2018 Proverbs 22:6 Education Fund grants.  Brad Kaden and Katie Spae spent their faith formation years actively serving St. Paul’s, their schools, and their community.

Teenage years are tough.  When asked how faith helped in their High School years, their responses included reflections such as: “Faith in my family, friends, and God is what fuels me for success,” and reminders that when things don’t go as expected faith helps transform sadness into words of thanks.  “. . .I just said (God) I trust you so thank you. . .”

  • Katie is attending Washington College this fall and is eager to pursue a career as a Physician’s Assistant.
  • Brad is attending University of Delaware and has been accepted into the Mechanical Engineering program.

Both Brad and Katie will receive $1,000 to help with their higher education.  Please join us in congratulating them on their accomplishments, celebrating the wonderful young adults they are, and encouraging them on their next chapter of their faith journey.
