HIGH SCHOOL (9th - 12th Grades)

Whether you’re interested in Sunday Conversations, High School Youth Group, one of the Special Events, or Urban Plunge, all 9th-12th grade students are welcome!

Sunday Conversations will meet upstairs on the youth floor!

(Use the stairs across from the kitchen).

This isn’t “Sunday School,” and it definitely isn’t lectures – it’s conversations! Each week we will have guests who will open the conversations. Our guests for the first unit are all leaders of different faith traditions who will briefly discuss their faiths and then invite students to ask lots of questions. Later in the year, we’ll take on other topics including school-life balance, social media, and strategies for dealing with life’s many challenges. Come join the conversation!

High School Youth Group

Starts Sunday, September 9, 5:00-6:30 p.m.

Meet in Fellowship Hall

All 9th-12th grade students are welcome to join our high school youth group. Each week there will be dinner, we’ll play games, hang out, and have conversations about life and faith.

Urban Plunge

Urban Plunge is an opportunity for 9th-12th grade students to learn from and serve at agencies here in St. Louis. Agencies we have partnered with in the past include: Cornerstone Center for Early Learning, Isaiah 58, KidSmart, Kingdom House, Ladue Chapel Food Bank, Lydia’s House, and Operation Food Search.

For the past six years, our high school mission trip, Urban Plunge, has been here in St. Louis. This summer Urban Plunge is going on the road! We are headed to Memphis to work with Memphis Youth Mission. Just like Urban Plunge St. Louis, we will learn about the city of Memphis and work at different organizations which are working to come alongside the needs in their community. We will also ask questions about where we see God working in our own lives and in the city where we’re serving.
