The Lewinsville Youth Fellowship Program involves grades 7-12 and meets weekly on Sunday evenings in conjunction and cooperation with the youth choir program (Lewinsville Choristers and Youth Bells).
Here at Lewinsville, the youth are part of the congregational life. Our students serve in Sunday morning worship, join in inter-generational activities and events through the Sunday morning CE program, and share in mission & service through Sunday evening Youth Fellowship. The students also serve and reach out to the surrounding community through involvement with mission & service projects done in conjunction with Lewinsville’s Mission & Service Ministry Group and mission oriented groups like World Vision, Share, and the Salvation Army.
Sunday night Youth Fellowship is a time for youth to reconnect with each other and their faith. The program begins at 6:15 pm with dinner provided by a parent, a lesson/discussion followed by a recreational or learning activity to end the evening.
