YOUTH BIBLE VERSE of the month is:  “Taste and see how good the Lord is!     The one who takes refuge in him is truly happy!”  Psalm 34:8 (CEB)

We have begun a new chapter with our youth group, by combining with other churches to create a Presbytery of Southern Louisiana Youth Group (PSL Youth).

  • Second Harvest Food Bank: Second Harvest is leading the fight against hunger in South Louisiana, providing food access, advocacy, education and disaster response.  It provides food to 474 partners and programs across 23 parishes. Volunteers play a critical role in the work of Second Harvest.  Thousands of volunteers enable it to provide 20 million meals a year to our neighbors across south Louisiana.   At John Calvin, we regularly provide volunteer groups for work-mornings at Second Harvest’s Elmwood Warehouse.
  • LASPCA: Our youth volunteer twice a year at the SPCA. This is a great way to earn community service hours while helping out our local SPCA.
  • Arc of Greater New Orleans
  • Youth Summer Conferences:
  • MoRanch:  2019 theme—Don’t Be Afraid, Y’all!   Age Group: for those who have completed 6th-8th grade      Scripture: Luke 2:10 “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people.”       During Jr. High Jubilee, youth who have completed 6th through 8th grade come together to be inspired to grow in their faith by learning and living the words and deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ. Hundreds of youth participants will gather together in the Hill Country for an unforgettable Mo-Ranch experience that’s filled with new friends, spiritual enrichment, worship, study and recreation. Activities and recreation will include everything from taking a challenge on the Mo ropes course, dancing, games, energizers, vespers and popsicle parties, to aquathons, sports, evening movies, swimming in the beautiful Guadalupe, singing God’s praises and more!
