Being a Teen at the Redeemer

Confirmation:

This is an opportunity for us to examine, with our minds and our hearts, the significance of the faith into which we have been baptized.  It is a time set aside to decide for ourselves what the claims of The Bible and the Church have to do with our lives.  There are many questions to consider before taking the step to confess faith in Jesus Christ and a willingness to follow him as Savior and Lord. Confirmation Class attempts to provide both the information and the setting necessary to engage these questions. Teens in the 8th grade or over are welcome to participate.

For more information, contact Confirmation Class Coordinator The Rev. Emily Garcia 617-566-7679, ext. 130 or families@redeemerchestnuthill.org.

Middle School Youth Group and Senior High Youth Group:

We offer a chance for middle schoolers and high schoolers to gather separately and to worship together, talk about the Bible, and eat together. It is our primary desire to cultivate a community of both middle schoolers and high schoolers willing and able to wrestle with the tough questions of faith in an environment that welcomes, affirms, and accepts all people. In addition to these important goals we also want youth group to be a place where teens can relax, be themselves, and have fun.

A schedule for both Youth Groups for the 2018-2019 school year will be distributed in the fall.

For more information or to request to be added to the youth group mailing list, contact Priest for Children, Youth and Family Ministries Emily Garcia at 617-566-7670 ext. 130 or families@redeemerchestnuthill.org.

Youth Assistants:

Youth Assistants are Confirmed high schoolers who serve in our Sunday School ministry, primarily in our Godly Play program (for which they are expected to receive formal training). This provides them with an invaluable service and leadership opportunity in the life of our parish. Youth Assistants are also expected to participate in other areas of the life of the parish for their own spiritual formation, so that their ministry to children is fed and informed by an active life of faith.

Those interested in becoming a youth assistant should contact Priest for Children, Youth and Family Ministries Rev. Emily Garcia at 617-566-7679 ext 130 or families@redeemerchestnuthill.org.
