At St. Andrew’s, Encinitas, our youth are engaged in a wide variety of activities throughout the year. Our youth group meets each Sunday morning at 9 a.m. in the youth room where we divide into two different groups, Rite 13 (7-8 grade) and J2A (9-12 grade). Over the course of the year, the students and leaders focus on the important things that help shape our journey with Christ.
Then at 10 a.m., we begin our Youth Service, grades 7-12. We meet in the youth room for a time of worshiping with friends while hearing a message that’s relevant to youth. At The Peace we head into the main service to join our families for the second half of service.
We also do fun events once a month, including things like laser tag, rock climbing, ski trips, overnight retreats and service projects. Every summer we participate in week long mission trips where we get to serve alongside our friends and leaders while growing closer to God and to one another. This summer we are serving the city of Los Angeles with Center for Student Missions, June 28-July 3, where we will be serving at various churches, missions and after school programs.

He would discover he was only partially correct, as he later wrote in his autobiography, “…I discovered […]
