ALL Youth in grades 6-12 and their friends are invited to join us!
What Have the Youth Been Up To Recently?
àWe made and served breakfast for dinner during the May Coffee House.
àWe volunteered our time at Animal Friends. Because of the support of the congregation, not only did we spend time volunteering at Animal Friends, we were able to donate food, toys and pet supplies to the shelter to help rescued dogs, cats and rabbits. Needless to say, we will be doing both events, again, next year.
What Is Coming Up for Our Youth?
June 4 --- Afternoon at Zone 28. We will leave church at 3 p.m. and will return around 7 p.m. While there, we will bowl, play laser tag, take a spin on the bumper cars and play some video games.
June 30 (the last day of VBS) --- We will be hosting movie night in the parking lot. Everyone is welcomed to come and hang out and watch a move to celebrate the end of another successful Vacation Bible School.
July 10-14 --- The youth will be heading to Johnstown, PA, to perform acts of service at Uth4Mission.
Who Can Join in the Fun and Mission? Youth in grades 6 - 12!
Watch for more events this summer and fall as we welcome new members moving up to 6th grade as well as those who have not tried our youth activities before.
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.
