Middle & High School Youth Program
Done for the Season-Will Start Again in September!
4West is our monthly youth group and confirmation preparation class for students in grades 6-12. In addition, there is a parent fellowship group as part of the program. Our next meeting is TBD in September.  Everyone is welcome to join the student group for Compline at the end of the program.
St. John’s, St. James’, St. Mark’s and St. Luke’s Episcopal Churches Present Middle & High School Youth 4West Youth Group.
Program Content:
The Youth will discuss answering the question,
“what does the Episcopal church say/believe/think about _______”
There will be one group for middle and high school together,
depending on who shows up led by Erin Moore.
There will again be a parallel parent/adult discussion group, and we will all join together for Compline (found in the Book of Common Prayer) at the close where youth will have the opportunity to lead.
Leader BIO:  Erin Moore is a teacher and musician who is excited to be leading the high school group of 4WEST starting this fall. Erin has been teaching music and religion for 10 years in San Francisco, CA and here in Syracuse. Erin holds her Masters in Theological Studies from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, CA, and her Masters in Music Education from Ithaca College. Currently, Erin teaches chorus at Christian Brothers Academy Syracuse and is the music director at St. John’s in Marcellus. Erin is married to St. John’s rector Fr. Steven Moore, and they have two wild children James and Miriam. Youth need to only bring themselves. 4WEST is the result of listening to families and responding to ever changing cultural pressures. Community families and clergy have been in discussion and research to create something to support area youth. The goal is to offer teen youth a path to spiritual growth and the love of Jesus. It has been said many times, “it takes a village to raise a child” and this program will be successful with consistent support and participation from parents, clergy, parishioners and area youth.
If you would like to help or sign your youth up, please feel free to contact
