Youth Happenings! Week of April 13 – 20, 2017

Sunday, April 16, 2017 – EASTER SUNDAY!

Sunday School – No, not on Easter.

Youth Group – No, not on Easter.

Last Sunday we had a lot of fun with Easter Games (Jelly Belly, Bunnies Nest and Eggstra Tall Tower.)


WE’LL BE STARTING OUR OWN EMAIL LIST SOON.  If you wish to be included email: to ensure you are on the email list. 

Junior High – Time Out!

Coming soon, on May 5th we will be having a night out for the Jr. High youth.  This evening will involved food, fun and local mission!  I will need parent drivers, so email me if you’d like to help.  We’ll be out together from 5PM until midnight!  YOU MUST SIGN UP TO ATTEND, so I plan for enough drivers.  Click the link to let me know you are planning to attend.

(Tentative) Boondocks!

(Based on confirmation from Boondocks….) On May 14th we will be meeting at Boondocks from 5-8PM.  For a youth group 3 hour event, it will be $16 for unlimited use of 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!

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 and games and then watch the sunrise Home at 7AM.  Details to come later!

Summer Looks Different, Grab A Calendar

The Youth Summer Calendar will be available the beginning of May.  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 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.
