Youth Ministries

In our SPY ministry, we prepare our youth for the future while empowering them to do ministry now. The students in SPY have served in cities across our country on mission trips and in Collin County on day trips. They serve at St. Peter’s helping with the children’s ministries, 2×2, music ministries, and worship ministries. We also provide our students with opportunities to grow in their relationship with Jesus while at the same time offering them a safe place to ask questions. We have a lot of fun along the way.

Christian Formation

This year middle school and high school students are learning about the Great People of the Bible. As students learn about the Bible and the people in it, they also learn about God’s great love for humanity. This class meets at 10:10 a.m. in Room 4 each Sunday morning. Any 6th – 12th grader is welcome to join at any time. Confirmation students are strongly encouraged to attend. Contact Mother Kathy or Tammy Snively for more information.

Jr. SPY

Jr. SPY is for students in 6th-8th grades. We meet at 5:45 on Wednesdays for dinner, games, a faith building time, and prayer. We also enjoy service opportunities and fun activities as scheduled throughout the year.

Sr. SPY

High school students meet Sundays 12:20 pm-1:30 pm. We have lunch, a faith building time, prayer, and time to just hang out together in our very cool youth room. We also meet for service opportunities and fun activities throughout the year.

Youth Mission Trips

Mission Trips are one of the ways our youth share Jesus’ love and care with those who need a little extra help in life. We have worked with people who are homeless, have special needs, are food insecure, or whose parents are deployed. We’ve traveled to San Francisco, New Orleans, San Antonio, Washington DC, Dallas, New York City, Austin, and we’ve stayed right here in McKinney. We enjoy exploring a city’s culture whether it be walking through Chinatown, exploring Ellis Island, or eating beignets. Mission trips are also an opportunity for us to worship and pray together.

Youth Summer Confirmation Camp

Confirmation is not a rite of passage to be done at a particular age but a call to be answered when a student is ready to confirm his or her commitment to be a follower of Jesus. The intent of the camp is for students to explore and question before making that commitment. During camp students will have the opportunity to learn about the Bible, the creeds and our beliefs, the Book of Common Prayer, the sacraments, Church history and much more. With this background, they are able to ask questions and even find answers. Our 2018 Confirmation Camp will be June 25-29, 9:00 am-Noon. Students are strongly encouraged to attend the youth Christian formation class The Great People of the Bible which takes place during the year.

Youth Choir

The Youth Choir is a dynamic group of high school and middle school students who are committed to growing in their knowledge and love of God through song. This choir rehearses 6:00-6:30 p.m. each Wednesday during the choral season (Labor Day to Trinity Sunday) and regularly participates in the worship life of St. Peter’s.
