Faithful Youth Inc. (F.Y.I.)
At Church of the Resurrection, faith formation does not end with confirmation. Faithful Youth Inc. (F.Y.I.), our high school youth group, helps teenagers deepen their understanding of how God is working in their lives and develop strong Christian friendships that will last a lifetime. All high school students are welcome in F.Y.I., whether or not they are members of our church.
Mission Trip Fundraiser: City Tins
Summer 2023 Mission Trip
Tentative Trip Date: July 23 – 28, 2023
If you are currently in High School, or will be next fall, you are eligible to go on the trip! (Graduating Seniors may also attend). We will need to reserve spots fairly soon.
COR Youth travel each summer to participate in a YouthWorks mission trip. The mission trip is the highlight of the year for our teenagers and has changed many of their lives. Each year the destination changes, but the focus remains the same: to form strong relationships with each other while doing God’s work in a community that may need our assistance. Contact Jeni McCullough for more details.
After a long day at school, most students could use some time to vent, celebrate, reflect and relax. F.Y.I. meets on Wednesdays during the school year and select weeks in the summer for Bible study, Christian fellowship and decompression. It’s a chance to check in and refocus on the important things in life. We meet at 6:30pm most Wednesday evenings in the youth room. Anyone in high school is welcome! Join us and bring a friend!
Our youth group is driven by what the students want to do. We see movies, plan lock-ins, go camping and lead worship services. We also help out with many church events, such as the children’s Easter egg hunt and the Ash Wednesday spaghetti dinner. One of the group’s all-time favorite events occurs in the spring: the Formal Dinner. Officially, the dinner is a fundraiser for our annual summer mission trip … but it’s so much more than that. With the help of parents and other adults, we transform the church into a special themed experience, and prepare a decadent meal, which we then serve to members of our congregation. The night is a wonderful bonding experience, which gets the youth group ready for the summer mission trip.
