“For I know the plans I have for you,”
says the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, Plans to give you hope and a future.”
The middle and high school years can be some of the most challenging of a person’s life. At The Falls Church, we want to walk alongside young people as they grow and help them to build for themselves a community that is strong, safe, and empowering. Teens are remarkable people who bring unique gifts and passions to The Falls Church. Our hope is to help them find places to use and grow those gifts so they can become adults who can depend upon their faith in times of needs, and draw strength from their faith to serve the world in whatever way they are called.
Each week a Youth Forum activity is sent out through our youth newsletter and our E-news. As we follow along with the Gospel readings from the lectionary, we ask our youth to think about their own lives and how it relates to the days Gospel passage. These activities can be done at any time.
The Youth Ministry at TFCE offers outdoor small groups for both Middle School students (grades 6-8) and High School students (grades 9-12). These meeting are mostly a time of fellowship where we talk about current events and how life is going.
Our youth believe that serving the community is an essential part of what it means to follow Christ. We have periodic youth outreach events that benefit other community programs such as AFAC and FCS.
