6th - 8th Grade Fellowship
Welcome to St. Michael’s 6th-8th Grade Ministry!
St. Michael’s offers a variety of opportunities for youth to have fun and grow in faith. Sunday School is offered during the Education Hour from 10:00 - 10:50 am on Sundays from mid-September to mid-May.
Events such as overnight retreats, service projects, and bonfires are held in a safe environment for youth to gather together, meet new people, and engage with adult leaders. These events are great opportunities to invite friends! Financial scholarships for events are available.
