MINISTER ONGOING FORMATION

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? ” —Romans 10:13-15 

Seeking to deepen your ministry experience and share it with those you serve?  Minister formation programs help parishioners active in ministries deepen and grow their Faith.

YOUTH MINISTRY

“Then our sons in their youth
will be like well-nurtured plants,
and our daughters will be like pillars
carved to adorn a palace.” –Psalm 144:12

This ministry was established in 2003.

Transfiguration’s Youth Group strives to offer all teens 8th grade through college opportunities to connect with other teens, hang out, have fun, gain peer support, help in the community, and continue their faith journey through discussions with others who share the same values.
 
We meet Wednesday nights from 6:30 till 8:30pm at the Youth House (111 S. Church St.). The first Wednesday of the month is Jr. High Friendly night where all 6th, 7th, & 8th graders are invited to join us for food, fellowship, and fun. Meet us in the Parish Life Center (school gym) and bring a friend. Check the calendar or bulletin for details and updates.
 
Adults participating in this ministry require Vicariate training and Virtus training through the Archdiocese and should be able to relate and communicate with the teens. The time commitment is one Wednesday night per month for 2 hours. We are also seeking help for shopping, organizing, and planning Youth Events.
 
“Being involved in this ministry makes me feel good knowing that I can make a difference in a teens life.”
