Sunday School Will Walk Through the Book of Matthew
Join us for Sunday School this year, as we take the book of Matthew chapter by chapter and read, watch a video, talk and discuss it together. All youth begin together in the Youth Room for praise and worship, announcements and the video. Then we’ll break up into groups for discussion: Jr. High will go to room 138 and Sr. High will stay in the Youth Room.

Roll into the New Year!
The Youth are going to support Little Blessings Preschool by replenishing their cardboard tube stash! We used a good amount of their toilet paper and paper towel tubes for an Easter game last spring. So, keep up with your “empties” and put them in the box outside my office (next to the retreat forms box) for the next few weeks. Let’s give back!
There is a huge church picnic happening on September 10th at Challenger Park! Are you aware that we (Youth and their families) are the bridge to the “gap” in the church? We have young families and we have older members. We bridge that gap! Let’s show up and connect our church at this great fellowship opportunity for our faith family! Bring a main, side, salad or dessert to share at the potluck, yard games and a friendly face! Arrive at noon or whenever you can to join us!
Can You Provide a Snack Dinner for the 2017-2018 School Year
We normally have parents volunteer to provide a meal for the youth on Sunday evenings. You may use the church kitchen for anything you need. A “snack dinner” is all we ask. Easy items are suggested like mac n’ cheese and a veggie, casseroles, pasta, baked potato bar, etc. The kids get a little tired of pizza, so we try to avoid it, but please do whatever is easiest for you. I’m only providing slots through January as of right now. Click here, to sign up to provide a meal.
Fall Calendars are Now Available on the Youth News Rack!
Our fall calendar is now available on the TOP SHELF (in lime green). This outlines all of our activities from now through December. Be sure to grab one the next time you are at church! Further details about the events always come out in this email.
