This past month, we learned how to Jump-start our Januaries spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. We had a great time at Skate Haven, and only one bone was broken!
This month, we will celebrate Friendship February. From Moses and Aaron, to Ruth and Naomi, to David and Jonathan, we will explore the examples of healthy, self-sacrificing friendships that scripture provides.
The Youth Group will be hosting a multi-church lock-in February 22nd (8pm)-February 23rd (9am), with Pfafftown Baptist, Green Street United Methodist, and Parkway United Church.
The youth group also needs volunteers to help out with dinner on Wednesday nights. If you are able to help please email Kaitlin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
