The youth at Ascension, who are in grades 6-12, are invited to participate in Refuge. Refuge is a time for the youth of Ascension to gather together for food, fellowship, and faith discussion. Refuge is held on the first Saturday of every month from 4:30-7:00 p.m. in the Upper Room.
In addition to Refuge, the youth group goes on fun trips and retreats to places such as the US National Whitewater Center, Camp Linn Haven, and Carowinds.
Secret Spiritual Sponsors
Adults in the congregation have a wonderful opportunity to anonymously pray for an individual youth member, to support them in their faith walk, and give them words of encouragement. The Secret Spiritual Sponsor project assigns an adult to each youth member, and that adult agrees to pray for their youth for an entire year, giving them gifts and words of encouragement anonymously throughout the process. At the end of the year, the youth and their sponsor are “revealed” to one another.
