Youth Ministry Report - March 2016
Our Youth Ministry is directed by a Church Ministry Associate who develops and implements programs and activities that balance fellowship, worship, service, and witness for the following parish youth groups. Click here to view the Youth Calendar.
That ethic is our goal at St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church. We offer Youth Catechism in our faith each Sunday following communion from September to May. Starting with our three-year-old class, and continuing through high school graduation, all young people are welcomed as we journey together towards spiritual strength.
St. Nektarios features a rotation curriculum that reinforces the important themes of our faith: Lives of the Saints, Major Feast Days, The Divine Liturgy, and The Sacraments. In this manner, children are exposed to each topic several times during their studies, at various levels of maturity, fostering a deeper understanding and knowledge base. We strive to incorporate many community activities that illustrate our living of the Orthodox faith outside the classroom as well.
Our catechetical team is dedicated to the future of our faith: our children.
