Youth ministry at Epiphany is for youth in 6-12 grades, and our goal is that the youth at Epiphany will know Jesus Christ as their Savior. We aim to nurture the faith of our youth and to connect them with their families, caring adults, other youth, and the congregation as a whole. Parents are the primary influence on the faith of their children. Therefore, Epiphany’s youth ministry strives to partner with parents to empower and equip them to nurture faith in their homes.

Each week we offer Bible study classes for middle school and high school students on Sundays at 9:30 in the Youth Room. Youth Group takes place on the second Sunday of the month from 12-3 pm during the school year. Weekly confirmation classes are also available for middle school students during the school year. In addition, we have monthly youth events and various trips and retreats throughout the year.

Questions regarding the youth ministry and upcoming events can be directed to Karin Meissner, our Youth Ministry Director, at youth@epiphanylc.org.
