FALL KICKOFF
FALL YOUTH KICK OFF: Wednesday, September 9th, 7pm

Bring a lawn chair and wear a mask! This night is for PARENTS and YOUTH together. There will be a trivia competition (contact-free) and an overview of our plan for youth ministry this year. We expect to finish by about 8:30. Save the date!
Thanks for coming!
Thank you to the 20 students and 5 volunteers (and Pastor Melody!) who came out to snow cone night! It was wonderful to see people in person and hang out. The bags tournament was quite the event! The participants did an excellent job of social distancing, wearing masks, and using hand sanitizer all evening. If we can continue to be this careful, we are excited to meet twice per month in person!
Future Plans

-In general and conditions permitting, youth group will meet TWO Wednesdays per month in person, outdoors. Masks, social distancing, and hand cleaning are required. New online large group messages and small groups will be held online when we don't meet in person.

-Students: fill out the following survey to tell us a little about what you might like to do: Youth: Take the Survey

-Since this time is unprecedented, we can't plan things out as far as we would like. However, we have tried to plan out September and October so families can plan accordingly. We appreciate your flexibility as things can change fairly quickly.
