October was a busy month for us! We fellowshipped together at the fair and had fun redecorating our youth room couch with sparkly duct tape!
More importantly, we learned what it looks like when we treat others the way God wants others to be treated through discussions around active listening, acts of
service, and words of affirmation.
During the month of November, we will be planning for Christmas and Carols on Dec. 16th at 5 pm. Our youth have been blessed with gifts of creativity and humor, and we hope to share those with you at this event.
If you are interested in providing dinner for the youth, please email me at email@example.com or call (828) 713-2570.
The Youth did a wonderful Job helping to lead VBS this year!! Thank you!
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.
