Youth Ministry Areas
EDGE (6-8th Grade)
EDGE is our youth ministry program for 6th-8th grade students. EDGE meets Wednesdays (excluding Family Formation nights), 5:30-7pm beginning September 13.
We will use the EDGE curriculum from LifeTeen that is specifically developed for Catholic youth in grades 6-8. Our sessions will consist of food and fellowship, prayer, scripture-infused lessons, small group time to engage more fully with lessons−as well as games and service opportunities (students can earn service hours).
For more information about EDGE please contact the Faith Formation Office, at 515-440-1030.
FISH (Fellowship in Spirit with Him, 9-12th Grade)
FISH is our youth ministry program for 9th – 12th grade students. FISH meets Wednesdays, 7:30-9pm beginning September 13.
The three goals of FISH are to: empower our teens to be a part of our Catholic Community, to help our young people develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and to have fun!
Evening formats will follow the LifeTeen curriculum with a Life Night, Issue Night or a Social Relational Night.
For additional questions about FISH please contact Claire Sevenich, Youth Ministry Coordinator, at 515-440-1030 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
