We are looking forward to a school year full of patience, positivity, and inter- and intra-personal growth. It is going to be my absolute joy to walk with you, students and families, this year. Our 2020-2021 theme is“Habits” – how getting into a routine and being disciplined is so important in loving ourselves, others, and God. Listed below are the highlights of what you can expect this semester as we try to be as inclusive and cognizant of the safety situations our students and families find themselves in. Please know that while our programming will be a bit different than normal, the staples of our program will remain: opportunities for our kids to be leaders and supporters of one another; spaces for our youth to escape the craziness of the world and just be goofy and play with one another; and environments in which 6th-12th graders can feel safe and authentically share what has been on their hearts. 


WINTER/SPRING YOUTH EVENTS

YOUTH GROUP
Sundays at Audubon Park from 3-4:30

Open to all middle and high schoolers, students will be placed in masked small groups
in different locations of the park, each with a different adult leader.
With their small cohort and leader, youth will check-in with one another
(practicing vulnerability and active listening), then take part in a fun exercise –
whether it be a sport, board game, or art activity-,
and finally regroup and conclude with a prayer practice. To join a small group, email Chris.


SENIOR HIGH SMALL GROUP (SHSG)

Alternating Monday nights (Zoom Check-ins) and Friday nights (In-person activities)

The SHSG is a special community in which older teens can authentically buildcommunity
amongst their same-aged peers, talk openly about the relevant issues and questions in their lives,
and navigate their faith and relationships together on a deeper, high-school level.
Activities vary from game nights to Bible studies to service projects to city excursions.
If you are in 9th-12th grade and are interested, email Chris.


DUNGEONS & DRAGONS GROUP

Every Saturday from 2:30-3:30 PM
Any youth interested trying out this hilariously fun and creative role-playing game,
led by one of our fantastic 8th grade students, is welcome to join.
For information about our current campaign, email Chris.

Take-Home Sunday School lessons are sent weekly via email
and posted on the @SCAPC_Youth Instagram account each Sunday.
