Ascension has a busy program of education and activities for youth in grades 6-12, in which they grow in faith and learn to care for each other and for Godâ€™s world.
â€“ Middle school and high school students meet the second and fourth Sundays of each month from 6:00 â€“ 8:00 p.m. in the lower hall, or â€śUndercroft Commons,â€ť of the main church. Â They gather for discussions, videos, service projects, dinners, games and much more.
â€“ Lock-ins strengthen the community of Ascension youth. We play games, eat, watch movies, and even sleep a little.
â€“ Traditionally at Ascension, young people in the 9th grade and older are welcome to participate in a special preparation class for confirmation. They will affirm for themselves the promises made on their behalf by their parents and godparents at baptism. Weâ€™ve discovered an exciting new curriculum called â€śConfirm not Conformâ€ť that has been well received by teens preparing for this special rite of passage.
Summer Work Camps
â€“ Each summer, middle school and high school youths travel to various areas of the country to repair homes while building lifetime spiritual experiences through hard work and fellowship. This is a great way to earn community service hours for school.
â€“ Young people can participate in various service projects throughout the year, including church and community clean up days, our Christmas Outreach Project, and other projects.
