Read about our Justice Journey!

The mission of Fourth Church Youth is spiritual care and faith exploration for youth in grades 6 through 12. Our focus is on relationship building and the formation of a welcoming and inclusive Christian community in which youth are accepted, known, and loved for who they are.

Through education, we immerse youth in historic and emerging expressions of faith and equip them to prophetically engage our culture while living in it. Through service to others, we cultivate the spiritual practices of charity and justice.

Our hope is that youth will discover a deeper awareness of God’s presence in their lives, a sense of call to participate in God’s transformation of the world, and a foundation for continuing spiritual growth as young adults and beyond.

Sunday Morning Youth Meetings

Join us each Sunday morning during the school year at 10:30 a.m. in the Gratz Center. All youth gather in the Bumpus Room on the second floor from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m., we split into our respective groups: Elevation / Junior High is in Room 4G, Fourth Church Rising is in Room 5A and/or the Circle breakout rooms, and Senior Highs stays in the Bumpus Room.
