Youth Group

Youth Group at Immanuel Church, Highlands

Immanuel Church, Highlands participates in a tri-parish youth ministry with Trinity Episcopal Parish and Saints’ Andrew and Matthew (SsAM) Episcopal Church. Each month, the youth of the three parishes come together for fellowship, fun, prayer — and food, of course! The parishes rotate “hosting” events. Some of our past events have included attending an Escape Room, a hayride, and a meal-packing event for Andrew’s Place.
Even in this time of pandemic, we are finding ways to be together! The youth leadership team has put together a series of fall events which allow us to engage in safe, physically-distanced, meaningful events aimed specifically at youth in grades 6-12. (Please see the schedule of fall 2020 events below.)
Questions about youth programming may be directed to any member of the youth leadership team:
Immanuel Church, Highlands youth leadership: Rev. Curt Kennington, Rector; Anne Alexis Harra, Minister for Children & Youth
Trinity Episcopal Parish youth leadership: Rev. Patty Downing, Rector; Rev. Charles Cowen, Associate Rector
SsAM Episcopal Church youth leadership: Rev. David Andrews, Rector; Michelle Smith, youth leader
Please note: per State and Diocesan guidelines, all participants must adhere to all COVID-19 health and safety protocol. This includes registering in advance, signing a waiver, having their temperatures taken at the door, frequent hand-washing, and wearing masks at all times (unless eating). Participants not of the same household must maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet between each other at all times. The youth leadership team makes every effort to hold events outside.
