Middle and high school students are invited to join this service-based youth group, which meets at Calvary on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. We focus on both "reaching out" and "reaching in" to strike a balance between developing ourselves and our personal gifts, and we use those gifts to serve others.
The Episcopal Church in Minnesota offers middle school retreats each year in November and May. Designed as "pre-TEC" retreats, each event is based on a TEC talk theme. High school students who have completed the TEC program are invited to give these talks and help lead discussions.
Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) weekends for high school students are offered in Minnesota every March and October. Themes for discussion include Made in God's Image, New Life in Christ, Face Grace, God Is Love, Share/Speak/Feel, and What is Holy? TEC in Minnesota has built a strong, vibrant community over the past 25 years.
Our high school students travel every summer to the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. With other high school students from Episcopal churches in Minnesota, the youth help with building and maintenance.
