This ministry is an integral aspect of having meaningful intergenerational worship in our community. Studies show that when young people have trusted adults, outside their family units, they are less likely to get in trouble and more likely to succeed in school. These statistics directly carry over into faith formation. Adult Pew Partners are matched with young members of our congregation to help during worship, pray for during the week, and develop a loving and trusting relationships with that deepen everyone’s faith.
Youth Pew Partners are encouraged to ask questions and follow along during worship, as closely as possible. They are also encouraged to learn to use the Book of Common Prayer and Hymnal 1982, take notes during the sermon, and to pray for their Adult Pew Partner throughout the week.
