Youth Ministry


Coordinator: Alexa Allmann (ajallmann@stpaulsithaca.org)

The youth ministry of St. Paul’s is a welcoming and fun environment where youth are inspired to continue on their journeys of faith with open minds and hearts. We aim to build a strong foundation of fellowship, prayer, and service through our relationships with God, each other, and the community.

Hello St. Paul’s Families,

The Children’s and Youth Ministries are working together this summer to create integrated programming inspiring a love of God and creation. We know everyone is “Zoomed out,” so we specifically picked lessons and activities that would allow for flexibility and some time away from technology. We plan to keep the weeks varied with lessons, activities, videos, and a couple in-person, outdoor gatherings.

The Structure:
On Mondays, we will send a lesson to families and youth to explore throughout the week.

On July 9 and August 6, we will have a Zoom check-in time for parents, children, or youth to chat with leaders about what they’re learning or what questions they have. Check the Upcoming Events page for the Zoom login.

Children’s Ministry Check-In at 3:00 PM
Youth Ministry Check-In at 3:30 PM

On July 23 and August 20, we will plan to meet outside at the church to play together and spend time with one another (distantly). These dates may change depending on weather.

We look forward to finding new ways to connect all ministries of the church together and stay united through the distance!

With Blessings,
Alexa Allmann and Kayla Eells
Youth Ministries and Children’s Ministries Coordinators

CONFIRMATION CLASS

For youth in 9th – 12th grade (but usually 9th and 10th graders), Confirmation Class takes place every 2 years. It is led by the pastor with help from adult guests. Class schedule is determined by the Pastor in conversation with the participating families. Upon completion of the class, the youth may be baptized or confirm their baptism and become full, professing members of the church in a Service of Baptismal Covenant.
