Sunday School – Yes! All grades 6 – 12 meet in room #144 (the Youth Room)
Youth Group – No, we will not be meeting due to Fall Break for DCSD.
Last Sunday we worked in groups to see who could build the tallest spaghetti tower only given a few items. Leaders emerged and we talked about leadership lessons from the Bible from Noah, Paul, David and many others! We also celebrated Jacob’s 18th birthday!
No Youth Group THIS SUNDAY!
We are not having youth group on Sunday, October 8th due to so many students being on Fall Break. We will resume on the 15th with SkyZone/Arby’s Night. (see below)
SkyZone/Arby’s Night – October 15
On October 15, we are ALL (both Sr. & Jr. High) meeting at SkyZone at 4:45. Our jump time is from 5-6. Afterwards we will walk across the parking lot to Arby’s for food and fellowship from 6-7. Jumping is $10, and your Arby’s meal will probably be around $10. You will pay me $10 for jumping any Sunday beforehand or when you get there. You will pay Arby’s for your meal. Fill out a liability waiver here and THEN email me that you are going. SkyZone will cross check you have a liability waiver online before you can jump. Parents drop at 4:45 at SkyZone, pick up at 7 at Arby’s.

Can You Help?
Families, we have a long-time member in our church, Nancy Smith, who had knee surgery and needs meals AND dog walking. Can you and your kids sign up for one or the other for ONE time? Click here to be connected to the MealTrain that also includes separate dog walking slots. She has two small dogs, and she will only be laid up for a few weeks.
New Carpet and Baseboards in the Youth Room!
We’re installing baseboards for the new carpet in the youth room (and downstairs preschool rooms) on Saturday, October 14th from about 9:00 a.m -1:00 p.m. Many hands make light work! If you have a little bit of time that morning and you are able to help, please contact Sarah Blankman: Sarah@parkerumc.org.
Fundraiser for Youth
In February we will be hosting a free Church-Wide Dance! There will be various opportunities to make donations that evening to the Youth Fund. One opportunity will be a silent auction while the dance is in progress. If you have either a destination location available or any sports tickets (maybe season tickets with an open date), or if you can give a gift card or two to donate for the fundraiser, please reach out and let me know. I appreciate your help!
