Fourth Wednesday Youth Ministry Fellowship Events
Our Monthly Fourth Wednesday Youth Ministry Fellowship Events are extra special. They are held the fourth Wednesday of the month from 6-8pm. We do ask that you sign up for them so we make the appropriate preparations.
One last Wednesday night fellowship will be the fourth Wednesday of December from 6-8 pm. It requires signing-up 2 weeks in advance so I can get all of the materials needed.
Wednesday, December, 23
Virtual Christmas FAMILY CHOPPED Competition (sign-up required). Zoom Code
Every Wednesday and Sunday our confirmation classes are meeting to explore what faith means to them and discern if they are ready to follow Jesus' lifestyle of bringing hope and love in this world and join the church. Although we are in the middle of a pandemic, our youth will still be able to explore the beautiful intricacies of our faith, and why we as Presbyterians believe the way we do. At the end of Confirmation youth will be able to put language to their faith, and prepare a faith statement before they join the church.

Cocoa with Sarah (in-person meet-ups):
Do you enjoy the fall weather, hot cocoa, and group/board games? If so I would love to meet up for a wonderful morning /afternoon on your back porch or under a pavilion at a local park for a time of socially distanced fun. Although, we will have masks on, being in person is a much better experience than being on zoom. If you would like to sign-up for 'Cocoa with Sarah' (And yes I will bring you Amish frothed hot cocoa and yummy snacks that pair well with hot cocoa) click the link below. I would especially love to meet all 6th graders and Confirmands. So sign-up today!
The YouthNews is a publication that is published three times a year and provides information about all of the youth ministry events happening during that season. We encourage you to print it off, or stop by church and pick on up, and hang it next to your calendar.

The peculiar beasts may include the Loch Ness Monster, Bunyip, Chupacabra and Ebu Gogo. This experience is built to be international, and covers all the continents, even the cold ones.

Summers: youth worship with their families
Our youth groups for our middle school youth and our high school youth is a little more high energy than Sunday School. On Sunday nights fom 6-8pm we gather in rooms 208/209 to hang out with our friends, eat, play games, and talk about how faith and the world around us meet. Some nights we also worship, or participate in service, or just play games all night. Hold onto your socks, because you never do know what you are getting yourself into each week you come to youth group!
Youth Ministry Kickoff Party is September 8 from 6-8pm, and all youth and their families are invited!
If you are in 8th grade or have not been confirmed, this is a place for you to enter into deeper thought and understanding about the Presbyterian Church and what you believe. This class will meet in the Senior Center on Sundays at 9:30am. Parents, come to our brief information session on September 8 at 10:40am at the Senior Center.
Do you enjoy singing with friends or singing in chorus at school? If so we have the place for you. Come join youth choir, all youth are invited on Sunday nights just before youth group at 5pm.

You can also check out their webpage HERE.
High schoolers, starting September 24 from 6-7:30pm we will be hanging out at the Hostetters' house every Tuesday. What will we be doing? Some baking, playing video games, watching movies, catching up on life over coffee or tea, cracking up over a game of fishbowl, cooking hot dogs over bonfires... really just enjoying life together. Contact Sarah to learn more and to get directions to our house: email@example.com. All high schoolers are welcome!
Starting later this fall, a group of youth will be teaming up to help lead worship each sunday in the 11am service. They will learn how to write prayers and liturgy, and will be supported as they help lead worship. Contact Andrew to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also starting later this fall is a group that will be working with Sarah and the Mission Committee to plan and lead church wide days of service (called Love Your Neighbor).
