Super Bowl Party! Change Your Green Calendar!
On February 5th, our calendar says we’re having Youth Group. A small change – as we are going to have a Youth Group Super Bowl Party! The Farney family have graciously opened up their home to host us during that Sunday evening for food, fun and fellowship! Even if you’re not a football fan – come fellowship with us! Although they are hosting, we are bringing the food, so click here to be taken to the Signup Genius to volunteer for food, drinks and supplies. Kick off is at 4:30, so you are welcome anytime between 3:30 – 9 PM. Please be gracious and clean up after yourself, but we will also need a clean up crew for the evening (also on the Signup Genius). Their address is: 20580 E. Regency Way, Parker, CO 80138. Hope to see you there!
Information Meeting for the Junior High Mission Trip
Retreat Information for Great Wolf Lodge
Parents, I need a few extra drivers! We have 41 students signed up and 5 chaperones, so I will need a few extra drivers to help transport students to and from the Great Wolf Lodge (Feb. 10/12). Friday night we will be stopping to eat at a fast food restaurant before we arrive at the GWL, so it will take a bit longer. If you are able to help, please email me (April@ParkerUMC.org) and let me know, besides yourself, how many students you can take in your car. I plan to assign students to cars for the trip there and back. Thank you in advance! Also, next week I will be sending out an email to all families who have registered for the retreat. This will give you more information about extra costs, bringing snacks, what to bring, etc. (Drivers, I will need a copy of your license and insurance card
Confirmation Classes begin January 29th
We have a small group registered this year, because we have moved the ages up. If you are not yet registered and would like to be, please email me (April@ParkerUMC.org) or call me at the church number (303-841-3979) and let me know. Confirmation is open to all students in grades 7-10. Classes are an hour and will at 11AM in the youth room. The dates are Jan. 29 – April 30th with three Sundays off for Youth Retreat weekend, Spring break and Easter.
PLEASE Grab a 2017 Winter/Spring Calendar
Please check the Youth News Rack in the Narthex in January for the new 2017 winter/spring calendar of events! Remember to write in Super Bowl Party on Feb. 5th! And as always – the information about how to subscribe to the “Remind 101” messaging tool is on the bottom of the rack (green for Jr. High and purple for Sr. High info.) Text/Email alerts are sent out once or twice a week to remind students about events or changes to events. Also a weekly scripture/encouraging word is sent to students (and parents who are subscribers).
Meals for Youth Group
Parents or small groups at church – are you able to provide a meal for the youth on a Sunday night? We usually have anywhere from 20-30 students between our two groups. Easy meals like casseroles, spaghetti, or sandwiches are always appreciated, and sharing a meal together is a large part of our fellowship time. To choose a date and sign up please click HERE for the Signup Genius. Thank you so much! You are very appreciated!
