Youth

Sunday School

ClassPosed.jpgYouth 6th to 12th grade gather for Sunday School from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings in room 0013 in the Westbrook Building, on the lowest level of the Divinity School. The class focuses on several books of the Bible each fall and spring, alternating between the Old and New Testaments. This pattern allows students to study the scripture texts in depth, moving deeper into the familiar stories. During the six years from 6th grade to high school graduation, participants will study nearly the entirety of the Bible. Students engage the Scriptures in conversation with practices of the Christian life and their experiences as students, artists, athletes, and followers of Jesus. Please join us at 9:30 a.m. in the Westbrook 00 level hallway for refreshments and fellowship before the class begins.

Youth Fellowship

Middle and high school youth come together each week for food, fun, and formation in the Christian life. If Sunday School tends to focus on the head and the study of Scripture, Youth Fellowship invites students to bring their hearts and hands to the life of discipleship. Youth Fellowship meets according to this pattern during the academic year: roughly twice a month, youth will meet for lunch and discussion following the Sunday morning worship service. The other weeks of the month, youth will engage in a service project with the Congregation, experiential learning, field trips, and fellowship events. Youth fellowship continues during the summer on a more flexible schedule. As the schedule and meeting locations vary from week to week, the best way to find out more is to contact andrew,phillips@duke.edu .

Seasonal Youth Events

The life of the Youth at the Congregation includes special events of all kinds. We offer Confirmation Class every other year, summer experiences (such as conferences, camps, and mission trips), an annual ski trip, and the Durham CROP Walk each spring.

Youth Service

The youth of the congregation are active in serving others, participating alongside other members of the congregation. Many youth serve as ushers during worship, some have assisted with Habitat for Humanity and others have bagged potatoes for the “potato drop”. Most of the Saturday Service Projects organized by the Mission and Outreach Committee warmly welcome youth participation.
