Our youth ministry exists to provide a community for our youth, grades 6-12, as they seek to grow in Christ. We think of it as a training ground; a safe place to hear and share the faith for our teenagers.
Our youth program at St. Laurence is one of the key pieces of our ministry together. Through teaching, service, and intentional time together, we hope to provide a solid foundation for our young people as they begin to understand life and spirituality.
We are blessed to have a full time youth minister on our staff, Katie LaPenna, who brings nearly 8 years of ministry experience to our program. We are also blessed to have an assistant youth minister, Chloé Bennett, who herself has been serving young people for many years. They are dedicated to equipping young people to live out the Christian Faith in their daily life.
If you are a young person who's interested in learning more about the Christian Faith or are looking for a community of Christians to support you, or you are the parent of a teenager, please email Katie. She would love the opportunity to welcome you or your youth into this community.
