TOMORROW is the Alaska Registration “Guarantee” Deadline (Sept. 15th)

Our Mission Trip is June 8-15, 2019.  CLICK HERE to view and download all the UPDATED information, fundraising information, and the registration form.  Our deadline for a guaranteed spot is September 15.  After that time Thirst Missions will release unsecured registrations to other churches.  You will be able to register after September 15 ONLY if there is space.  There may be, I just don’t know.  Click here to view the video regarding our trip with Thirst Missions to Alaska.  A flyer about the Thirst Mission’s Alaska trip is also available on the Youth News Rack.

 Youth Meeting at Cherry Hills Community Church Sept. 23rd

We will be meeting at Cherry Hills Community Church on Sept. 23rd for a youth of Denver event called 1.Church.  If your youth needs a ride PLEASE let me know, so I can plan for some carpools. Parents once you drop your student at Cherry Hills, meet up with the other parents at Parry’s Pizza in Highlands Ranch for some pizza and fellowship!  1.Church will be a wonderful night with a focus of seeing who else from your school is involved in a youth ministry.  Hopefully this will help to prepare and launch us toward See You At the Pole – a school prayer event.

Church Picnic, Sept. 30th & YOUTH BIKE RIDE

For SNL (Youth Group) on Sept. 30th we will be taking a bike ride from Challenger Park and going north on the Cherry Creek Trail.  We’ll be stopping at an area off of the Bronco’s Parkway intersection for a devotional (and maybe dessert….).  Then we’ll head back to Challenger Park.  The picnic will begin around 12:30, so we will plan to depart around 1:15 and come back around 3:00.  There will not be regular SNL (youth group) at the church that day.  IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BIKE RACK ON YOUR CAR – you may take your bike(s) the day before and lock them up at the park if that helps.  Parents are welcome to ride along.

Parker Task Force Food Collection Saturday, October 20th and NO SNL (Youth Group) on Oct. 21st (please add/fix green calendars)

We have reserved two different time slots to help the Parker Task Force collect food on October 20th – please choose one that works with your schedule the best.  We will be at the Parker Wal-Mart from 10-12 and 12-2.  Have your youth contact their friends and pick a time slot that works best.  I am encouraging youth to eat lunch together in Subway either before their shift (11 AM) or after their shift at 12:00.  It will be a great opportunity to offer our service and also have great fellowship time together. CLICK HERE to choose your time slot.  I will sign off on these hours for High School Community Service Hours!  Just a little bit of Trivia – Did you know that the PTF was started long ago by PUMC Member Nancy Gripman?  She passed away recently, and a statue of her was just commemorated in O’Brien Park that was actually made by another PUMC member, Don Budy. (Don also made the cross that hangs in the front of the church, the stained glass, and other statues around Parker).

High School Students Thinking About Colleges

Are you starting to look at colleges?  If you’re considering a Christian college here is a link to several Christian College Fairs occurring in September.  Perhaps you can find a date and location that works for your family if you are interested.  CLICK HERE to access the flyer.

Parent Social 

On September 23rd I will need help taking youth to the 1.Church event at Cherry Hills Community Church.  I thought that evening would be a great opportunity for parents to have a social time to visit and get to know each other.  I’ve selected Parry’s Pizza & Bar in Highlands Ranch (9567 S University Blvd, Highlands Ranch, CO 80126) as a meeting place.  It’s not too far from Cherry Hills and would be a wonderful place for you all to gather and get to know one another better.  IF YOU CAN NOT GO – your child can still attend 1.Church, and we will offer rides from PUMC to Cherry Hills for the 1.Church event.
