If you are in 6th – 12th grade, or if a 6th – 12th graders lives in your house, or if there are 6th – 12th graders in your family, or if you know any 6th – 12th graders, I highly encourage you to check this out . . .

There are A LOT of things coming up that our middle and high school students can engage with.  ALL of them are focused on helping students to practice, learn, and grow in The Way of Jesus.  Some of these events and activities are things to just “show up to” while others require students to register online at so please, check it out.

D-Groups – Wednesdays from 6:15 – 8:00 pm – in the Youth Room at St. Thomas. All 7th – 12th graders are invited to be a part of a community that seeks to be as real as we can be, with God, with ourselves, and with one another.

Film School – Sundays at 9am – in the Youth Room at St. Thomas.  Come join us as we watch full length films (in 20-30 minute segments) and talk about the stories from the films line up (or don’t) with The Story God is telling in the scriptures.

Super Bowl Party – February 3 from 5:00 – 8:45 pm in the Parish Hall at St. Thomas. HUGE HD SCREEN with food and drinks and fun and prizes. ALL ages welcome.

Medieval Knight – March 24 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm – at St. Thomas. A massive game of “find-the-armor-but-watch-out-for-the-dragon”. Plus, we transform the Parish Hall into a Banquet Hall with amazing food. Bring your friends ‘cuz they won’t believe they get to do THIS in a CHURCH!

Contagion – April 5 – 7 – at The Lake House in Egg Harbor, Door County (many thanks to the Ackell Family). If you’re in 7th – 12th grade, this weekend experience is the best thing we do all year.  Truly.  A weekend away from it all, a time of relaxation, coffee, cooking, intense community, and diving deep into a life with God. Cost is $25 and sign up is at

Homeless Connections – April 28 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm – meet at St. Thomas but join us as we go shopping for food and then deliver to Homeless Connections in Appleton. It’s just one way we can continue to love God and love our neighbors.

Appalachia Mission Trip – July 6-14 – Jonesville, Virginia. All 6th – 12th graders are invited to think and pray about joining us on this incredible trip to love our neighbors in the Appalachia Region of The United States.
