Under the leadership of Rev. Robu, our youth group for students in grades 6 through 12 offers a mix of whole group and small group activities. Our youth have participated in a wide range of activities including backpacking in Colorado and Wyoming, fundraising activities, on-site lock-in events, local mission projects, and mission trips to Joplin, and Argentina.

Youth Trips 

Most summes Plymouth offers at least one service/learning trip opportunity. While the youth are the primary participants on these trips, adults are encouraged to participate as well. Recent trips include Joplin, MO (2012), Re-Member on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in SD (2014, 2015, 2018), Heifer Ranch in Perryville AK (2015), Borderlinks in Tucson, AZ (2016), Reach Beyond Mission in Washington, D.C. (2017), and Boston, MA (2013). Youth participate in fundraisers throughout the year to offset the cost of the trip. Fundraisers include the Annual Talent Show, Pancake Breakfasts, Chili Feed, Bread Sale, and Bierock Sale. 

Check back int January for information about the summer 2020 youth service/learning trip. 

Confirmation

Plymouth Church offers a confirmation class for teens interested in joining the church. The program covers Bible themes, church history, the life and ministry of Jesus, and basic theological and Congregational concepts. The next confirmation class will take place in the spring of 2020. Please contact one of our ministers for information.

Our Whole Lives

In the fall of 2017, Plymouth offered the human sexuality class Our Whole Lives for youth in grades 9 and 10. OWL helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality. This class will be offered again in the fall of 2020. Contact Rev. Robu if you are interested in having your child participate. krobu@plymouth-church.net
