Navigate Youth

Through the LENS (Looking at Entertainment Noting Scripture)

This is our Sunday morning program for youth grades 5-12 where we view scenes from movies and talk about how they reflect our society, lives and connection to scripture.

We have just finished segments of Remember the Titans. If you and your family would like to watch at home here are a few talking points:

•What walls build up in our lives? (ex. Between siblings, friends, teams, schools, etc.)

•What can we do to help knock down these walls?

•Read: Galatians 3:26-28 How can we live fully as one with Christ?

•Read: Ephesians 4:12-16 How are we all a part of the Body of Christ?

Who We Are

We are the new youth ministry of St. Martin’s by-the-Lake Episcopal Church. We’re teenagers grades 5-12. We’re all about helping kids transform their lives through Christ, and Christian kids be Christian for life. We do this by supporting families as they raise their children in the Christian faith. We do this through relational ministry with a team of gifted adults, peer leaders, and weekly, summer and special event ministries.

Why We Do What We Do

Mentoring young people as they transform their lives through Christ, equipping them for their own ministry, and guiding them as they continue to grow as Christian disciples in the Episcopal tradition.

Our Vision

We see a welcoming Christian

community of young people that:

Gathers to Worship their God.

Grows their Faith as Disciples.

Loves their World in Mission.
