Our Senior High group is a loving and caring spiritual community consisting of high school students grades 9-12. The 9th graders spend the first half of the church year in the ROP Program and join our Senior High group in the second half of the year. We promote spiritual learning through group exercises with instructors and youth leaders in practices such as yoga, meditation, prayer, and more. We foster a community of youth through discussion about political, social, or personal issues that affect our lives and the lives of the people around us. We also develop a team spirit among youth in a challenging time in their lives through youth led games and other recreational activities.
