Senior RCYF

SR RCYF (Senior Reformed Church Youth Fellowship) is a vibrant community designed for youth to come together, connect, and grow in their faith. We provide a welcoming and judgment-free space where high school students can engage in fellowship, lessons, reflections, and, of course, have fun!

Our gatherings take place every Sunday from 6 pm to 7 pm, offering a consistent and enriching time for 9th to 12th grade students to connect and explore their faith journey together. From September to May, our dedicated team creates an engaging program that combines valuable lessons, meaningful discussions, and enjoyable activities.

We believe in the importance of intergenerational relationships, and therefore, we invite adult members of our congregation to become leaders for SR RCYF.  leaders play a vital role in guiding and supporting our youth, providing valuable wisdom and mentorship along the way. Together, we provide a nurturing community where young people feel valued and supported in their spiritual growth.

At SR RCYF, we prioritize a judgment-free zone. We embrace unique journeys and experiences of every person and walk alongside one another as the Lord leads. Our goal is to foster an environment where young people feel safe to be themselves, ask questions, and explore their faith without fear of judgment or criticism.

Join us as we come together for SR RCYF, a place where Christian youth can connect, find fellowship, and grow in their faith. We invite you to experience the joy of building meaningful relationships, exploring God's Word, and discovering your unique purpose. For more information, please contact us. We can't wait to welcome you to SR RCYF at Newkirk Reformed Church.
