JUNE 12 – YOUTH LED WORSHIP SERVICES (ALL 3)

Those participating in our Youth Led Worship Services in ANY WAY, please follow the “arrival” schedule and come to the Sanctuary.  We will be doing all three services, so please tell your parents you will be finished around 12.  Thank you for ALL of your hard work and dedication to make this a special Sunday!

Youth Choir – 7:15 AM for a sound check with microphones

Instrumentalists – 7:20 AM for a sound check with microphones

Everyone else in our “Special Group” – 7:20 AM for announcements & practice.  I will send a link on Remind to a Private YouTube video so you can watch and keep it fresh in your mind.

SUMMER CALENDAR

Summer is coming and we’re going to have a lot going on and you’ll need to keep up!  A summer calendar is now available in three places throughout the church:  the Youth News Rack (in the Narthex), the church office or the Youth Room (144).

SUMMER BIBLE STUDY

Come join us for a Youth Bible Study this summer!  It’s not too late.  Please consult the Summer Calendar for the schedule, as June is a little different.  We’ll meet at Village Inn on Wednesdays (Pie Day…).  Senior High will meet at 9 AM at Village Inn to eat (or just grab a beverage) to fellowship and then do our study.  Junior High will meet at Village Inn at 10:30 to eat (or grab a beverage) and fellowship, but THEN will walk back to the church for our study.  So, Sr. High from 9-10:30ish at Village Inn.  Jr. High – drop off at Village Inn at 10:30 then pick up at church about 12:30.

DONATIONS NEEDED TO SUPPORT MISSION TRIPS

The youth are taking two mission trips this summer.  The junior high are traveling to Cortez, CO, and the senior high are going to Tsaile, AZ.  The cost of renting six vans for a week, sponsoring 7 chaperones and paying for gas to travel will be a huge expense.  We’d love to raise $6,000 to offset these costs.  Please watch for our Mission Trip table on June 12 to see pictures and talk to the kids about how they use their lives to make a difference.  Donations can be made by writing Youth Mission Donation in the memo portion of your check.  Thank you!

3 STUDENTS & 1 CHAPERONE NEEDED FOR JUNIOR HIGH MISSION TRIP

We are traveling to Cortez, CO, June 26-July 1 to work in the small town near the four corners.  Light work and wonderful worship and faith-building times. Chaperone has no cost. Student cost is $279 a person and covers the week except for travel food/snacks.  For more detailed information email April@ParkerUMC.org

BRAINSTORM ABOUT A NEW T-SHIRT DESIGN/NAME

As the youth of the church, I’d like for us to have our own t-shirts with our own logo that we could wear when we’re out doing service projects or even having fun!  Also, Sunday Night Youth Group has been known as SNL (Sunday Night Live) for a while now.  Do you like it?  Would you like to call it or us something else?  Do you like Parker Youth, or would you like something more unique?  So, brainstorm some ideas, do some sketching and bring your ideas for names and logos to me (April) the next couple of weeks!  We’ll talk about it!

KNITTING WITH NORI – NEW GROUP THIS SUMMER

Would you like to learn to knit?  Would you like to hang out with Nori?  Sometimes it’s not necessarily all about the knitting as much as it is just the time together!  Nori Stockman is going to start a knitting group for 6th grade and up this summer on Tuesdays from 1:30-2:30 beginning on June 7th in room 137.  Get a ride or work on a carpool and come on!

JUNE 19 – HIKING CASTLE ROCK – you’ll need a liability waiver

ALL YOUTH who need a ride, meet at the church at 5 PM.  We will need parent chaperones/drivers. Come join us in our hike to the top of Castle Rock, where we will have our worship and study at the top!  Pack a sack dinner, so we can picnic afterwards!  Watch for details!

JULY 10 – POOL PARTY 1-5 PM

We will meet, swim, eat and play at the Stonegate South Pool from 1-5.  10326 Stonegate Pkwy, Parker, CO 80134.  Please use the following SignUpGenius link to sign up to help with food and chaperoning.  www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0A4BA5A62DA31-pool

JULY 17 – GREASE! AT 2PM THE PACE CENTER

We have group tickets for Grease! Tickets are $17 and we only have 25 seats.  If you’d like a ticket bring me your check/money as soon as you can.  As of July 1st, if I have extra seats I’ll open it up to the congregation.  Parents can attend or drop off and pick up from the PACE Center. (Please be advised this is Grease! – so content is PG-13.)

NO YOUTH GROUP ON THE FOLLOWING DATES

June 26 – I will be on Junior High Mission Trip

July 3 – in observance of the holiday

July 24 – I will be gone on Senior High Mission Trip

JULY 31st – PAJAMA & MOVIE NIGHT @ CHURCH

We’ll be watching “The War Room,” eating and having discussion. Bring your pillows and blankets!  ALL YOUTH at 5 PM.

REMIND 101 – COMMUNICATION TOOL FOR YOUTH & PARENTS!

I have created an account with Remind 101 so youth and parents can receive short, FREE texts or emails 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 I will ALWAYS have the information available.  Hopefully, with the creation of a few new communication tools, this weekly email will become more of just a notice to the church as to what we’re up to, rather than our main communication method.
