Senior High School Programs

SYF (Senior Youth Fellowship):

Wednesdays* 7:00 - 8:00pm | Sept. - May

Senior Youth Fellowship (SYF) is a time when high school teens gather for fun fellowship games and activities. Each program night includes faith-based conversations about school, relationships, and what it means to be living out our Christian upbringing. Fun outings and service projects are on the calendar throughout the year, including the annual dodgeball game against JYF! 


"Therefore encourage one another and build up on another, just as you also are doing." 

1 Thessalonians 5:11


*The program will not be held on the second Wednesday of each month due to Life Planning.

Life Planning: 

Every Second Wednesday of the Month

 7:00 - 8:30pm | Sept. - May

Life Planning is a beloved mentorship program here at St. John's!  At the time they enter the program, each high school teen is paired with an adult member within the congregation who serves as the teen's mentor through his/her high school years. 


The full group gathers for activities and games, service projects, devotional time, and life conversations once a month. In addition to the monthly gatherings, mentors and students are encouraged to spend one-on-one time together outside of church, with mentors praying regularly with and for the youth. This program has led to lasting mentor/mentee relationships and friendships long into the youth's adult years! 


"The Life Planning program has really been an encouragement. It's easy to talk to my mentor and tell them about my life. We talk about different random topics that turn into very long and very thoughtful conversations."

- Joshua R., Age 16


"I continue to keep in touch with my Life Planning mentor to this day and I love having his support through each new stage of my life. I've now become a dad and continue to carry some of the lessons he taught me into my relationships with my own children."

- Anonymous, Age 31

Senior High Sunday School:

Sundays 9:15 - 10:15am | Sept. - May

Come make a yummy coffee, grab a blanket, and put your feet up while your heart is filled with God's word!


The SHSS class provides a time for teens to study the truths of the Bible for application in their daily life guided by RightNow Media video lessons and/or book studies. Teens meet in the second-floor Youth Room, a quiet and cozy space designed to let each student unwind and connect with God and his/her personal faith in a new way.  


The best part? Light breakfast and snacks are typically provided! 


Classes are taught by Ryan & Devin Bernath and Jeff & Stacy Rutledge.
