Here at Christ's Church we intentionally integrate our youth in grades nine through twelve into the regular work and worship of the church. They work with the Sunday School, either as teachers or assistants, many on a weekly basis. They have long served as Acolytes but now also act as Ushers and as Lectors, proclaiming God's word from the Lectern in the 10 am service. Our youth are also active in Service Projects; volunteering once a month at the Caritas Food Pantry in Portchester, cooking and serving for the Carver Center’s Dinner at Noon, and joining with the church of St. Peter's in Portchester to pack bags of food for those in need at Thanksgiving.
In addition, there is a new High School Youth Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month at 7:15 pm. Don't miss the fall kick-off on September 16th!
This past year, our youth traveled on pilgrimage to the Taizé monastery in France with youth from Christ Church Bronxville. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved. The 2020 pilgrimage to Taizé will take place over the Rye School February break. If you are interested in learning more, an informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 2nd at 8:15 pm.
