St Paul's Youth

Jr. High & Sr. High Youth

St. Paul’s Youth is an active group of 6th – 12th grade students who are growing in their faith and love for Jesus together.   We are dedicated to empowering teens across Staunton to a better future through fun, friendship and a personal relationship with Jesus. Open to all high school and middle school students. Our weekly gatherings are relaxed and welcoming, encouraging youth to be all that God has made them to be. 

We strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment that allows our students to:

  • experience the fullness of God through worship

  • connect with each other and the church 

  • serve the local and global community  

We want our students to understand that God created each and every one of them in His image with their own unique gifts and that His love for them is unfailing!  Our students are a vital part of our congregation and we are committed to keeping them connected with the local church as their relationship with God grows deeper.

Sunday School 

We meet Sunday mornings at 9:30 till 10:15 in the Youth room. Our youth classes for Junior and Senior High students are opportunities for youth to be both challenged and educated. 

Sunday Night Gatherings 

We meet Sunday evenings at 5:30 pm for our youth gatherings. We meet in the gym where we have fellowship over a meal and large group activities. We then break into Junior and Senior High groups where students are engaged in learning about God’s word.
