Junior High – Time Out!

This Friday, on May 5th, we will be having a TIME OUT for the Jr. High youth.  This evening will involved food, fun and local mission!  You will need to bring about $10 for dinner, a swimsuit, towel and hairbrush.  We’ll be out together from 5PM until midnight!  YOU MUST SIGN UP TO ATTEND, so I plan for enough drivers.   Click here to let me know you are planning to attend.  During the evening we will be delivering HOMEMADE cookies to our local firemen.  Sunday during youth group, we will be baking cookies for this outing!  If you are able, please bring a dozen cookies to donate to our firefighters sometime next week or that Friday evening!  I will need parent drivers, so email me if you’d like to help.

Move Up Sunday!

All kids will “move up” to their next grade starting June 4th.  If you are a current 8th grader, you will start attending Sr. High events!  Current 5th graders are welcome to start attending Jr. High Events!

Summer Teaching Opportunity!

I sure do like to give our Sunday School teachers the summer off.  Could you help a youth lead Sunday school or ask youth to read and lead them in discussion for a little less than an hour maybe twice this summer?  Come give it a whirl and figure out how teaching really brings YOU closer to the word!   Click here to choose a date or two that works with your schedule!  AND THANK YOU!

On May 14th we will be meeting at Boondocks from 5-8PM. Please plan to meet me at the registration desk with $16 in cash or a $16 check written to PUMC.  We will have 3 hours of unlimited bowling, Laser Tag, Bumper Boats, miniature golf and Go Karts.  You’ll also receive a $5 game card. To maximize your playing time, eat before you arrive!

Jr. High Mission Trip Registration (current 5th – 7th graders)

NOW IS THE TIME!  You may now register online with Buckhorn Camp.  Once you click the link, you need to scroll down and register for Youth In Mission, June 25-30. Please enter their grade they will be entering this coming fall.  It is a little confusing as you continue to register.  Please fill in ALL fields that are required. When you come to a part that says Family Camp, PLEASE scroll down towards the bottom of that section and add “Family Church & City.”  So, they know you are from Parker United Methodist Church.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

Sr. High Lock Out

Put it on your calendars!  We are having our Lock Out from June 2-3.  Again, we will be meeting Friday evening between 9-10 PM, food, fun, local mission and then watch the sunrise. We head home at 7AM.  This picture is when we delivered donuts to hospital workers at 4 AM. Details to come later!

Summer Looks Different, Grab A Calendar

The Youth Summer Calendar will be available April 30th.  Grab one from the top of the Youth News Rack in the Narthex!  (Lime green)  During summer we don’t have “normal” youth group meetings, as we are usually off site having fun!  Be sure to check out the new calendar to keep up with events and activities!

Do you still need a PUMC Youth T-Shirt!

Order a shirt by clicking here!  The cost of shirts is paid for from the youth budget.

Do you need to subscribe to our text updates and weekly scriptures?

I have created an account with Remind 101 so youth and parents can receive short, FREE texts oremails from me reminding them of activities or changes coming up!  It’s easy to subscribe to and FREE (even if your phone says you may incur charges – fear not!)  There are two different groups (Jr. High and Sr. High).  As you get older you can switch groups, or stop receiving them at any time.  Or if you sign up to receive emails, but then get a cell phone later, you can switch from receiving emails to texts.  It’s easy and the information is ALWAYS available on the bottom rack of the Youth News Rack. Green for Jr. High, Purple for Sr. High.
