At St. Philip's, every age is cherished, and youth and young adults are encouraged to take on leadership roles in the places they feel called. Youth and young adults play in the praise band, run the sound board, teach and assist with Sunday School, peer lead for Confirmation, sing in the adult choir, assist with children's choir, work on ministry teams, and so much more. Youth and young adults have a place and purpose at St. Philip's.
July 23, 9:00 AM-3:00 PM
Since we weren't able to attend the National Youth Gathering, we're doing our own service project! First we'll do a shift at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, then have lunch and play laser tag, mini golf, and krazy karts at Grand Slam in Burnsville! Cost is $10 per person. Meet in the St. Philip's parking lot at 8:15 AM and we'll ride over together (parent drivers/chaperones welcome)!
August 13, 11:30 AM-3:00 PM
Join our second annual high school kayaking excursion! We'll kayak down the Cannon River and stop for ice cream on our way back! Cost is $15 per person. Meet in the St. Philip's parking lot at 11:00 AM and we'll ride over together (parent drivers/chaperones welcome)! Note: while we expect the excursion to end at around 3:00, the actual ending time will depend on how long it takes to finish on the river.
