Our Ministries

youth ministryYouth Ministry – Our Senior Youth Group is for young people in grades 9-12.  Senior Youth meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month from 7:30 pm to 9 pm.  During meetings, youth get an opportunity to play games, have fellowship with youth their age, and study God’s Word.

Our Junior Youth Group is for grades 6-8 and meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month after Midweek Bible class from 5:30 pm to 7 pm.  The evenings begin with a light supper with games, servant events, movies, or Bible studies following supper.  Whatever we do, it is always FUN!

In addition to our regular meeting times, we also have a wide variety of activities for our youth scheduled throughout the year.  We have youth gatherings, camping trips, mission projects, lock-ins, volunteer opportunities, and a whole lot more!  Keep your eye on the calendar and our monthly Epistle Newsletter for upcoming events!

Midweek Bible Class –  Every Wednesday from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm during the school year, the young people of St. Paul are encouraged to be a part of our Midweek program.  Classes are for grades 1 through 5 with confirmation classes for grades 6 and 7.  Snacks and games are provided at 3pm with music starting at 4pm.  Bible based lessons are taught for each grade from 4:30pm to 5:30pm.  If you are interested in having your child be a part of the Midweek program, please feel free to contact our Director of Christian Education, Amy Schmidt at amy@stpaulankeny.org.

WinterMusicMusic Ministry – Two easy ways you can get involved at St. Paul is by being a part of our Chancel Choir or a part of our Handbell Choir, the Alleluia Ringers.  Feel free to join either (or both) groups.  The Chancel Choir practices on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm and Handbell Choir practices at 7:45 pm.  We also have handbell groups for kids. Psalm 95 is for youth in 3rd grade and up. Joyful Noise gives kids in 1st and 2nd grades a chance to use practically indistructable multi-colored bells.
