J2A (Journey to Adulthood) - 9th and 10th Graders
Adam Shoemaker
Description of J2A.

J2A is the second two-year phase of our youth group curriculum and is made up of either 8th and 9th graders or 9th and 10th graders, depending upon the year. The 2017-18 program year will be 9th and 10th graders.  The design of this middle portion of the program is to engage youth with the skills and critical thinking involved in adulthood.  J2A culminates in a pilgrimage trip that the youth plan and embark on together that many cite as the high-point in their spiritual journeys.  Past pilgrimages destinations of Christ Church youth have included places as diverse as San Francisco, the Canadian Rockies, Iceland, Scotland, Belize, Alaska, and Charleston, SC!  The most recent pilgrimage was to New Mexico and Arizona in the summer of 2016!  The next pilgrimage will be in the summer of 2018 to Galveston, TX.

In addition to normal class time, J2A also gathers for non-Sunday morning activities which continue to bond the group together.  For J2Aers, a big bonding experience is often the community-wide effort to raise funds for their pilgrimage trip (which engages everyone in the parish).  Confirmation is offered in the program year following a J2A pilgrimage, so the current confirmation class is being offered from February to October 2017, culminating with the Rite of Confirmation on October 28, 2017.

If you have any questions about J2A, please e-mail Hannah Whitlock.
