Good Sam’s Youth: 6th grade and higher

Good Samaritan has a great youth group for Middle and High Schoolers! We meet for Formation classes every other Sunday morning at 11a.m.; catch up on what’s been happening in our lives; sometimes play a game, and then get into our Christian Formation class.  

The schedule for the month looks like this:

SUNDAY CLASS/ CURRICULUM LOCATION YOUTH LEADERS*
1 #churchthatserves TBC Erina Ludwig
2 Who is God?: Echo the story Harris Academy Library Mary Kerstein & Sean Meaden
3 #churchthatserves TBC Erina Ludwig
4 Who am I?: Rite 13/Faith Lens Harris Academy Library Yvonne Brandenburg & Hilary McCabe
5 Youth-led Sunday Harris Academy Gym All

* Which Youth leader teaches is subject to change, due to scheduling conflicts. In case a 2nd leader cannot be found, Erina Ludwig will stand in, until her maternity leave begins.

Weeks 1 + 3 we join with the community to participate in our church’s outreach and service projects after worship.

Weeks 2 + 4 we have Formation class where we follow curriculums: Echo the Story (a look at who God is through interactive bible study) and Faith Lens (a look at who am I? through a weekly blog of reflection and discussion).

Our youth group also partners closely to Brownsburg High School Equality Alliance Club, has welcomed esteemed guest speakers like activist Lauren Easterling, for a Trans 101 talk; makes trips to the movie theater for topical and breakthrough movies like ‘Love, Simon’ and ‘The Hate U Give’ – which lead to great conversations.  The Youth group also enjoy regular visits to Waycross for hangouts with other Episcopal youth from all over Central and Southern Indiana. Our own JeffreyDreyer is on this year’s Episcopal Youth Steering Committee, who are behind Youth retreats.

The next Youth retreat is: March 1-3, 2019, ‘Light up the Night’.
