Youth Small Groups

Youth Small Groups

Weekly Small Groups

Small groups are an opportunity for youth to deepen their faith and deepen their relationships with others. Small groups are divided by middle school and high school and they focus on caring for each other while learning faith essentials through the Manchester Youth 3 Year Curriculum. Groups will decide together their meeting day, time, and location.

All Youth are welcome to join any of these small groups:
