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.

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.
