The Youth Ministry at Calvary provides an environment for our youth where they can connect and build community together.
The youth ministry at Calvary Denver strives to create an environment for our junior and senior high students where they can build community together as they engage their local communities around Denver. As our youth learn the stories of our ancestors in faith they are encouraged to reflect on how their own faith stories add to the Christian narrative. Our students are invited to ask tough questions as they begin to take ownership of their faith journey and grow into young adults capable of articulating their own beliefs.
During the Church School hour (11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.) students are given the space to explore theology, spirituality, life lessons, and community. Students experience a rotation of leaders and topics.
On the first and third Sundays of the month, youth leaders are Josiana Umuhoza and Sara Reynolds, and they lead students in discussing Sister Joan Chittister's A Passion for Life: Fragments of the Face of God. On the second and fourth Sundays of the month, youth leaders are Tim and Leigh Bessey and Erin Gangloff; they facilitate discussion on Life and Faith.
All youth activities are off on 5th Sundays in the month.
At youth group, students gather for fellowship, service outings, special events, retreats, and interactive lessons connecting faith, school, family, extracurricular activities, and choices within all facets of life.We hope to create a place where questions are encouraged, life experience is validated, and all are welcome. Youth Group also plans and goes on overnight retreats and service trips throughout the year, building students’ knowledge of different cultures and capacity for civic engagement.
Students meet for youth group from 1:00-4:00 p.m. They experience a rotation of youth activities on and off-site of church property. First and third Sundays students engage in topics pertaining to how the creative arts help us explore our faith and lives; while on second and fourth Sundays students are off-site for fellowship activities or service opportunities.
Youth leaders for youth group include Steve Allexan, Gordon and Lynda Pelton, Garrett Pelton, and Denise Wylde.
