Our faith formation philosophy at St. Paul UCC is to integrate our youth into the life of the church. We have monthly events during the school year for our youth. They assist in fundraisers to raise money for their trips to DuBois Center and other activities. By participating in the events, they also have the chance to build relationships with the community.
At St. Paul, we believe that people of all ages should be encouraged to try out their gifts and share their talents, time, and treasures with the community as they can. Our youth not only participate in special worship services but also share their gifts in the weekly services and other programming of the church. Throughout each month, our youth sing in the Chancel Choir, play bells with the Glory Ringers, perform instrumental solos, coordinate sound and video, and lend a helping hand when needed.
Each year, we also feature events for the enrichment of our younger congregants. Vacation Bible School is a collaboration between St. Paul UCC and Trinity UCC. Through a variety of on site and take home activities, we ensure our youth have opportunities of faith formation that fit into their busy schedules.
