Youth Ministry


The purpose of St. Anne's Youth Ministry is to make God known, loved, and served. We come to know, love and serve God through prayer, service, and social events. The high school youth group meets twice a month for social or prayer events. These happen on the first and third Sunday of every month (unless otherwise noted, they take place in the Youth Room at the church). High school students are invited to participate in a monthly service project; on some occasions more than one service opportunity happens in a month. Students in these grades are also encouraged to attend the Mission Trip that happens each summer.

As an introduction into Youth Ministry, a social event happens once a month for Middle School students. Please check out all events below Upcoming Events for High School Youth Group:
