High School Ministry (9-12)

At every baptism we hear Jesus say, “Let your light shine before others that they see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).” High School Ministry is designed to help young people in 9th – 12th grades to figure out ways to live out their faith in daily life while letting God’s love shine through them into the world.

Youth Fellowship Opportunities

High School Fellowship events are for any youth in grades 9-12 grade. These events provide opportunities for youth to gather together, meet new people, engage with youth and adult leaders and is a great opportunity to invite friends to get to know more about Incarnation. Scholarships are available. Please contact Kristin Bloxham for more information.

Youth Leadership Opportunities

At Incarnation we know how important it is to have high school students actively involved with younger students. Check out some on-going Youth Leadership opportunities here.

High School Milestone

Faith Milestones are a series of programs designed to build “Faith in the Family” starting from the time a child is an infant and continuing through their graduation from high school. It is a program that recognizes the incredible impact parents have on the faith life of their children and works to partner with parents on the faith education of their children and to help them live out the promises they made at their child’s baptism.
