Our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders meet twice a month on Sunday evenings from 7-8pm in the House. Bible study, fun and fellowship, contemporary issues and more emphasis on service projects energize this group.

  Each Sunday morning at 9:15am, Mid Kids meet in the Noble House. Throughout the year, they explore the Bible, the seasons of the church year, and the history of the UCC and St. John's. They also join with Senior High at time for special speakers and their Out of the House activities.

Summer Crew

Our 4th - 5th graders meet once a month typically the first Sunday of the month from 6-7pm in the House. The emphasis of the group for 4th and 5th graders is fun and fellowship and the beginning of service projects.  

Our Summer Crew is a group of mostly senior high youth that take part in events during the summer. This typically includes a mission trip, Creation Music Festival and an event promoted by the Penn Northeast Conference of the United Church of Christ. (Regional or National Youth Events). By taking part in these events, our youth grow in their relationship with each other and with God; they gain independence, travel to other parts of the United States and are the "hands of Jesus". They are exposed to the teachings of inspirational speakers and the music and witnessing of Christian bands.

The Summer Crew earns through fundraisers the necessary funds needed to participate in these events. Ages 12+

Wherever you are in your journey, we, the leaders and mentors at St. John's will provide and safe, caring and supportive environment where you, the youth, are encouraged to develop and nurture in a Christ-centered lifestyle through worship, recreation, fellowships and service.

All Youth groups offer a variety of activities to  appeal to a variety of likes and dislikes.  The young people are encouraged to invite their friends and to come as their schedule permit.  As leaders, we evaluate, eliminate and revise to keep the programs fresh and new.
