There are several opportunities for youth to be involved at Round Hill. Pastor Dan Haugh leads the Youth Group and other activities with middle and high school students, including:
• Friday Night Live! gatherings once a month
• Youth Fellowship during the Sunday worship service in the Youth Center at the Community House
• Serving as liturgists, ushers, and acolytes during the Youth Sunday service once a month
• Trips to snowboard, bowl, play laser tag, and more
The common thread is by being together and engaging in healthy, faith-based activities, the students build strong bonds with each other and benefit from the mentoring of Dan and other adult volunteers.
The Greenwich Community Confirmation program, sponsored by Round Hill Community Church, is open to all 7th and 8th grade students. Special allowances will be made for students of other ages who have been unable to be confirmed previously. Though content is important in the journey of faith, we believe the process of discovery is equally as important.
Through intentional dialogue and discussion, faith-based questions will be explored over a period of several months. Each confirmand will be paired up with a caring and committed adult; this relational aspect is the foundation of our program. We plan for our program to be a safe place for youth to raise their questions and doubts, and to struggle and wrestle as they engage their faith and its meaning in their lives.
Through study, reflection, and sharing life together, students will discover what it means to be a person of faith and how that can impact living in this world and working for the greater good.
Through exploring Christian faith and other traditions, we hope that students will examine their own beliefs and better understand and articulate their individual experiences and views, and discover that faith is key to a flourishing life.
Service is an integral part of faithful living and so Confirmands will be asked to complete a minimum of 10 hours of community service. Below is a list of our local partners. Service days and other domestic opportunities, such as a summer trip to the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation are organized by our congregation and are available to Confirmands as well.
