Sixth and seventh grade Young Disciples JOURNEY with Jesus during the 2023-2024 Faith Formation year. Utilizing LifeTeen EDGE curriculum as a base source, programming includes other USCCB approved sources for a ‘best practices’ approach to meet Diocesan standards for 6th and 7th grades.

Sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month beginning with a parent and student session on September 24, 2023.

JOURNEY meets from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the PLC. Each session includes social and snack time, Saints of the week, breaking open Scripture, a main topic, and prayer. As we JOURNEY, we also explore the places the Bible introduces. The Youth Ministry staff is very excited to embark on this JOURNEY with all of our 6th and 7th grade Young Disciples.
