Our youth ministry programs are designed to support the journeys of our teens in middle school and high school. They are a combination of fun, conversation, service and prayer! All that we ask from our youth is to bring an open and generous heart -- we believe God will do the rest!"

THREE Things to Know for the week ahead:
Youth Ministry for the week of Sunday September 26th...


ONE:
Middle School Youth Faith and Fun begins this Sunday @ 10am!
Faith and Fun
Bringing the Bible to Life : Part ONE!
How well do you know the Bible? How well do you know yourself? Let’s grow in faith together! We will end our time together with a Crazy Connect Four Challenge.

TWO:
High School Youth Group meets this Sunday beginning with a chance to hang out in the "Upper Room Cafe" (in our Youth Room) from 6:30-7:00.
Play the Wii (old school style fun), or an air hockey game or two... BUT most importantly, grab a warm cup of coca, sit together and talk and talk...

Following the free time above, our youth will gather from 7:00-8:15 for a themed discussion (led by Rev. Anne Marie) that will invite our youth to consider the words of Jesus, "When two or three are gathered..." Our youth will be invited to also consider ways to support the work of IINE in providing donations for Evacuees of Afghanistan.
