PaxConnex is the middle school faith formation and youth ministry program at Pax Christi. This year we will be starting year two of our three year curriculum cycle with the topic "Who is Jesus?"

Middle school youth will explore and discuss topics related to the person of Jesus using scripture, prayer, skits, science experiments, and other activities. The format for in person learning will be large group-small group. The youth will begin their session as a large group to learn the big ideas of the night, then move into small groups of 6-8 young people with an adult leader to discuss those ideas and build fellowship.

Parents are kept up to date with Flocknote messages each week detailing the main ideas for the sessions along with resources and discussion questions for at home learning.

Adult leaders/catechists are needed to help facilitate small group discussions and activities. Leaders are provided with the complete set of session plans, including a verbatim script (helpful for those who want it!) to help with preparation. No previous experience is needed, just the willingness to listen and learn along with the youth. All supplies and materials are prepared ahead of time to make being an adult leader as painless as possible. Please consider being an adult leader this year!
