If you’re interested in attending Uth4Mission this summer (July 10-14, 2017) see Dave or Shannon or any of the youth who attended last year (Emma, Kaylynn, Elisha, Hannah, Finn, Nathan or Eddie). Uth4Mission is the annual mission trip planned by the Western PA Conference. We attended last year and can’t wait to go back and perform acts of service for the people of Johnstown and Somerset.
The youth had a great time attending SPARK, January 20-22. Spark is an annual youth retreat that is coordinated by the Western PA Conference. This is the 2nd year that the Youth Group attended and they had even more fun than last year. The conference started Friday night and the youth were greeted by members of the conference Youth Ministry Team. After registration, we had the first worship session of the weekend and then free time. During free time, the youth could participate in various activities such as dodgeball, gaga ball, karaoke and making blankets for the Bethany House. Day 2 kicked off with another worship service and two break-out sessions where the youth had the opportunity to meet the new bishop. We then headed over to station square for dinner and some exploring. Saturday evening ended with another worship service and more free time. We ended the weekend with our final worship service and communion. All weekend services were led by the worship band Sanctus Real and guest speaker Bob Lentz. During the entire weekend, the youth met new friends, reconnected with God and most importantly had fun! We can’t wait to attend SPARK again next year. If you are interested in attending this fun-filled spiritual weekend, see Dave or Shannon for more information.
A big thank you to the congregation for supporting our fall fundraisers which allowed us to send 8 youth to SPARK at a very minimal cost.
Don’t be left behind and join the youth group today.
