Fall Youth News

Fall Kickoff-We look forward to beginning our Youth Ministry Fall programming on Wed, Sept 13th. Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to join us and new faces are encouraged! Following our church dinner at 5:30PM we will gather to kick off our fall programming from 6:30-7:30PM in the Youth Center. Our Fall ministries will include weekly bible studies on Wed evenings from 6:30-7:30PM and a Fall Retreat Nov 10-12 at Ridgecrest Conference Center which is going to be amazing!  


Fall Retreat-Our Fall retreat will be different this year in some really cool ways. Our friends at First UMC will be joining us and four other churches for a weekend at Ridgecrest Conference Center. The entire event is being planned and carried out by leaders from each of the churches and we are really excited to lean into God’s leadership with this one. The weekend will be fun, restful, renewing, and refreshing. Registration for the Fall Retreat Nov 10-12 will begin September 13th. The weekend will be open to all youth grades 6-12 and total participant cost for the weekend will be $100. The deadline for registering for this event will be Oct 18th and a deposit of $50 is required. The church helps to offset participant’s costs allowing the expense to be reasonable however we do not want anyone to decline the opportunity due to funding. If that cost is a challenge please contact Charlie and we will find a way to work it out for you! 


Bible Study-This fall our studies will follow the Disciples as they follow Jesus through the Gospels. The text we learn from will help us to learn skills and practices for individual discipleship while also framing up a faith community that can most effectively foster discipleship.    


Sunday Mornings-We welcome all 6th-12th grade students and their families to join us in worship on Sunday mornings. We have three worship services, a modern option at 9AM and traditional at 11AM and a traditional Hispanic service at 11AM. Between our Sunday services we have a time for those in 6th-12th grade to gather in the Youth building. It isn't a class since several youth are either arriving late or leaving early due to responsibilities with the services, however we do provide a time to gather in fellowship, reflection, and prayer.   


New faces are always welcome and if you have questions, concerns, or are exploring how to get involved feel free to contact our Youth Minister, Charlie Brown at (828)729-0700!
