Perhaps the best way to sum up what the High School Youth Group at All Souls is all about is: Fun, Food and Fellowship! We meet weekly on Sundays from 6:30-8:30 pm to share our lives with one another. In our community we find a safe place to unload the concerns, challenges and joys we carry around each week. We laugh, we pray, we play games. We support and encourage one another. As part of this time, we share dinner with the High School Youth Group from 6:30-7:00, which parents bring on a rotating basis.
Every summer we spend a week together in service. In recent years we have gone to South Dakota, New York, Healdsburg, San Diego, New Mexico, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, and Washington States to serve in many different ways.
In 2016, we joined youth and adults from four other East Bay Episcopal churches and made our way to Washington State, where we did wild fire relief work. You can hear the youth preaching about their experience after returning home here.
We also regularly have Confirmation Classes using the Confirm not Conform program to help our high school youth explore what they do and do not believe to be true and to then discern whether they want to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church.
