Veritas | Youth Group for Grades 7 to 12
What is Veritas? The word Veritas means “truth” in Latin. In John 8:31b-32, Jesus says, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free”. (NRSV) In this passage, the word used for “truth” is Jesus himself.
At Westminster, if you hear someone say they are “going to Veritas”, it means they are coming to youth group. At Veritas, the evening begins at 5:30 with dinner in Fellowship Hall, followed by games in the WROC. The rest of our evening is spent in worship and prayer, followed by small group discussions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in our world today. Veritas is open to all students in grades 7-12. For more information, please contact Becky Boyer. Annual registration is required.

2023-2024 | You Belong!Teens need a place to belong, a place where they can be themselves and feel loved. At Veritas, this fall, we will be discussing the many aspects of belongingness, and what it means to belong to God. This will lead into a series about Community (Koinonia) and how the early disciples lived in community with one another, for better or worse! What does community look like today? All students in grades 7-12 are welcome at Veritas! See you Wednesdays!
Learning about God in church is great, but it’s even greater while walking through the woods or going down a water slide. Check out our events page to see what we’re up to this time!
The Remix—because we are Reformed and always Reforming Confirmation Class is for students in grades 9-12 who are interested in exploring their faith journey with Christ and their connection to the church. This class will meet on Sundays at 11:00, every other week, throughout the school year. Class begins on September 10 and will end by April 21. Students are encouraged to profess their faith by joining in membership when they feel they are ready to do so. For more information on Confirmation Class, contact Becky Boyer.
Confirmation at Westminster has traditionally involved a parent class. Ed will continue to lead a class at that time which will explore faith, life, and the various ways that scripture informs and guides our lives. This class will be open to all adults; parents of confirmation students are highly encouraged to join in order to share in and support the spiritual growth of the entire family. This class will meet 6 times between September and November. For more information on the adult class, contact Ed Sutter.Confirmation Schedule
