Hello all and Happy July!
We have a busy month ahead of us.
We leave for Christmount July 8th and return July 13th! Please pray for a safe, productive, life-giving week. (There will be no youth group on the 11th.)
In preparation for our youth-led service this month, our theme will be the Fruits of the Spirit! We are looking forward to showing you all the creative ways that we can apply the fruits to our daily lives.
On Wednesday, July 25th at 6 pm in Taylor Hall the Youth will lead a worship service on The Fruits of the Spirit. Join us afterwards for an ice cream social!
Then, we will leave for Carowinds on Aug. 1st at 9 am! (There will be no youth group that evening).
Throughout the school year the Youth participate in a few community outreach programs, such as the Crop Hunger Walk, Samaritan Ministries, Christmas caroling for homebound church members, etc. The Youth also take an annual Summer Mission Trip to Christmount Work Camp, which is located in Black Mountain, NC.
Each May a particular Sunday is designated as “Youth Sunday” and all of the children and Youth are involved in worship, serving as leaders for the entire service. They present a skit or play, serve as elders and deacons, read scripture and usually provide the sermon itself. The event is well-attended and helps to connect the congregation with the Youth and children of the church. This year the youth have decided to have a “Youth Wednesday night” July 25th at 6pm. There will be an ice-cream social immediately following the service.
