Keep up with St. Christopher's Youth
No Youth Group November 25th
After talking to youth and families, it was determined that holding Youth Group on Sunday November 25th after Thanksgiving will not be helpful. We'll see you December 9th! There will also be no formation on November 25th as is reflected on the Semester schedule.
Youth Group December 09
We have been invited to attend a special event at St. Michael's in Noblesville presented by the Hamilton County Coroner. In lieu of our regular youth group on December 9, youth and parents are invited to meet at St. Michael's for this event from 12:00-2:30.

You can view a schedule for the event by clicking the image to the right.

Please Register by emailing the link provided so that they have an adequate number planned for lunch by December 2.

St. Christopher's Youth GroupMe
Youth who've been given permission to be communicated with by leadership are being added to a GroupMe (a commonly used group messaging app) to be used for updates, polls, and to keep in touch. Permission can be granted to be added to the group through the registration form's question regarding permission to contact youth. If you have already submitted the form, then you have already indicated permission. If you have questions about what you indicated or if you have submitted the form, contact Jenna.
Diocesan Youth Fall Retreat: Faith and Science
All youth in grades 6-12 and their adult chaperones are invited to join us for this event. Come explore the intersection of faith and science. Is it possible for these two worlds to complement each other? This peer-led retreat will put into dialogue science and theology, inviting participants to consider how science helps form our faith in God and how our Episcopal tradition approaches these topics. We'll have small group and large group sessions, campfires, worship, workshops, recreation activities, a talent show, and more! This event is planned and led by the Youth Steering Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis.
Youth Performances, Games, and Extracurricular Events
Now that school has started, I would love to support the St. Christopher's Youth in their extracurricular events! If there is a performance, game, or other important showcase you would like me to attend, please let me know throughout the year with this form and I will do my best to be there.

Thank you,

Jenna
