St. Peter’s Teens in Action
The St. Peter’s Teens in Action Youth Group is built on the premise that the teens and youth of our parish are a blessing and a gift. Teens are an integral and important part of our parish family as they are the future of our church and they bring unique talents to our parish family.
We strive to:
Provide a safe zone where teens can connect to each other to share their faith in a fun way.
Help teens be authentic in their sharing and to find and live out their connection to God.
Be a place for teens to develop friendships with others who share similar morals and values and to be known for something other than academics or sports.
Empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
Challenge teens to find their inner strength to put their God-given talents to use to learn what it means to serve others as Christ did.
Draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the St. Peter’s faith community.
Foster the total, personal and spiritual growth of each young person and find the best in each teen.
Be concerned with the whole person, addressing young people’s spiritual needs in the context of other parts of their lives.
We are truly blessed to have an active teen population in our parish and are very appreciative of the support of the parish to help keep our “teens in action,” living out their faith!

The 2018-2019 TIA Year is Off to a Great Start!
The teens of St Peter’s are back in action for the 2018-2019 school year! In September, Lisa Weis and her family hosted the teens for a kickoff picnic on the lake, followed by an outdoor parish mass and potluck dinner. Father Marty celebrated mass with about 40 teens and parishioners!
We had over 30 teens attend the first “official” meeting in September and were happy to see many new and returning faces. Of course, the first meeting would not be complete without the traditional parking lot water balloon launch!
And the teens of St. Peter’s definitely put themselves “in action” at this year’s Cars and Clams picnic. Teens helped out manning the popcorn and cotton candy machines, painted many young happy faces, and hung out at the bounce houses and coloring station with our young parishioners. Many thanks to those who helped out!
