As of the start of the 2018-19 school year, our vision statement for youth is this: We want to offer youth a spiritual home––one they can have for all their lives. Our hope is that youth at All Souls have a safe space set aside for them, a place where they can practice a life of faith, and a path to discover the Christian way. We envision a community where youth and adults (who are not their parents) grow together in their understanding of God, the world, the church, and themselves.
All Souls Middle and High School Youth Group is made of 6th through 12th graders from schools all over the East Bay. We meet weekly on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm to explore our faith, to wrestle with current issues, and to play together. We gather as a whole group to start and then break into our respective Middle or High School groups.
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.
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.
Attached below is the calendar of events and youth group for the 2018-19 year. Please contact Emily Hansen Curran, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
