New beginnings

What is New Beginnings?

Who can attend?

Middle School is a challenging time both in social and faith development. With so many questions about life, faith, friends, and identity, it can be tough to find a safe space to work through it all. 

New Beginnings provides a time and place in Christian Community to explore those questions and more. The program also works to equip middle school youth as leaders in their own parishes, and to engage them in the full life of the home church.


New Beginnings is open to middle school students (Grade 6-8). Youth who have been through New Beginnings are welcome to attend again. 


High school students (Grade 9-12) and adults, both youth leaders and volunteers. 

To serve on New Beginnings Team, you must be able to attend a required Team training.
