Youth Forum - Grades 9 to 12
Plymouth’s High School Ministry, Youth Forum, meets every Sunday at 10 am, an hour before the 11 am church service. About half the time the group stays together for the full two hours. Half of the time we spend the first hour in faith formation work on our own and the second at the 11 am service.
The group includes teens grades nine through 12 from high schools covering the entire region. In addition to Sunday mornings, Youth Forum meets for events on Sunday afternoons, Saturday nights and occasional weeknights including movie nights, hikes, service events, overnights and retreats. You can find weekly updates on Youth Forum activities by clicking here.
A highlight of the year is a week-long spring mission trip, traveling within thestate, to other parts of the United States and abroad to engage with issues of faith, economic inequality, justice, and peace.
Through these times together the teens build a strong bond that extends beyond the normal high school social scene as they contemplate and discuss faith, ethics and meaning and live out service and community.

Contact Information for Youth Forum Lay Ministers, David and Robin Mallory:
Soon afterwards he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother's only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, "Do not weep." Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, rise!" The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has risen among us!" and "God has looked favorably on his people!" This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.

Great job on YLW! It all came together and I keep hearing how much everyone enjoyed the experience!
Sunday is our last official Sunday of the program year. David and I have enjoyed spending time with you and your teens and can't wait to spend another year building our faith together. Over the summer we will have casual events, if you have ideas, please email them! Look for the summer newsletter later in June. We also want to give a big thank you to Jim and Sue, they have volunteered for two years and have signed up again to help next year. THANK YOU!
We will be attending service this Sunday since it is Confirmation Sunday!
