Youth Programs

Youth are a Vital Part of Our Ministry & Mission

Through worship, fellowship and service, we empower youth to become faithful disciples in a complicated world. We invite all middle school and high school youth to be active members of the LAC community.

Youth Fellowship in Worship

Worship is the centerpiece of our community, and youth regularly participate in the weekly service, as well as the annual Youth Sunday. Share your gifts through singing, playing instruments, readings, skits or dance!

In Middle School? Join TGIF (Thank God its Faith/Fellowship/Fun)!

All 6th, 7th and 8th graders are invited to join TGIF (Thank God It’s Faith/Fellowship/Fun). With a focus on working together and learning and growing in faith, TGIF offers a mix of activities—including food, games, service projects, discussions and prayer.TGIF participates in preparations for the Youth Midnight Run each year, and regularly bags groceries at the Larchmont/Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force. Led by Interim Director for Youth and Family Ministries, Ekama Eni, TGIF will meet on Sunday afternoons (except during school vacation weeks), and a few other times for service projects.

High Schoolers, Join SHIFT (Senior High Faith/Fun/Fellowship Time)!

SHIFT is at the heart of our Senior High Youth Ministry.  We meet every Wednesday from 7-8:30 p.m. to share pizza, our lives, and our faith. SHIFT service projects include going on the Midnight Run with LAC adults and our partners at Larchmont Temple. We join other partners in domestic or international mission trips. We play games, have discussions, and reflect on what it means to be faithful teenagers growing up today. Sometimes we watch movies or clips that are thought provoking; sometimes we read scripture; and every time we pray – for our world and each other. SHIFT is a community of real teenagers, trying to make our world better and live the lives we are called to as disciples of Christ.
