From all of us here at Village Youth…
We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s! We’ll see you when programs start back on January 8, 2017!
We are on Winter Break for a few weeks! Programming is taking a break from Dec. 18-Jan. 9. All of our programming starts back on Jan. 10. See you in 2016!
It’s the final week before Winter Break! And in honor of Christmas, we have a lot of special things happening during our programming. Think of it as early Christmas gifts! Here’s the rundown of what is happening in the week ahead…
1) Back in the Sanctuary THIS Sunday, Dec. 13th!
This Sunday worship returns to the Sanctuary at 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am. We will still have Sunday school, per usual, during the 9:30 service. Just come on up to the Youth Loft (Room 333) and we’ll meet you there!
2) Village Voices Christmas Caroling at Brighton Gardens – Sunday, 5:00-6:30pm
On Sunday afternoon the Village Voices are heading over to Brighton Gardens during their rehearsal time (5:00-6:30pm) to do some caroling for the residents there. Meet at the church and then we’ll travel together to 71st and Mission Rd. What a great gift to the folks down the street from us!
3) Christmas Progressive Dinner at Cheer – Sunday, 6:30-8:30pm
This Sunday is our annual Progressive Dinner and Christmas Party at high
school youth group. We meet during our normal time and have adults drive students to three different stops/houses: appetizer, entrée, and dessert. You can come dressed in your favorite ugly sweater, Christmas PJs, or you can go classy and dress for a fancy holiday party. Come join the fun!
4) Twosdays – Tuesday, 4:00-5:30pm
With one more Tuesday before the break, Twosdays will be all about Christmas fun. We’ll have a few snacks on hand and plenty of holiday cheer, so swing by after school all you middle schoolers!
5) Christmas Party at GPS, Wednesday, 6:30-8pm
The annual Christmas Party at middle school youth group is always filled with great games, holiday excitement, and delicious Christmas treats. Come on out for a fun night, and don’t forget the ugly holiday sweater competition!
6) Winter Break Schedule
As of December 18 we are officially on Winter Break. There is no youth programming from Dec. 18 – Jan. 9. Our first events in the New Year are on Sunday, January 10th.
Even though the weather has been amazing out there, Christmas is around the corner. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and hope to see you soon!
Cheers and Merry Christmas from all of us here on the Youth Staff,
Adam, Kevin, Matthew, Mich, and Zach

Hey high schoolers! There’s no school on Friday, October 23, so we are having a mission day! Come on out to the church at 8:30am on Friday morning and we are heading over to Crosslines to work on setting up their Christmas Store. It will be a great morning of doing some good work.
Not gonna lie, it’s probably one of the best ways you can spend your morning 🙂
On this Christmas Day we give to you…
We are so excited for this year’s trip; it will be an amazing experience as we fly to the East Coast to help people recover from Hurricane Sandy. We will even get to check out some of the Big Apple on our free day! An epic trip for an epic summer!
