With Youth Week having just finished up, we start our summer program schedule THIS Sunday! We have several activities each week, both for middle schoolers and high schoolers. Take a look at what is happening (all activities will meet in the Youth Loft, Room 333, at the church and, if travel happens, will return by the designated end of the program)…
Sunday School – 9:30-10:30am – Each week we’ll meet during the 9:30am service and talk about our summer theme, “Greatest Hits.” The atmosphere is always fun, casual, and welcoming of everyone, no matter what your experience with faith/church.
Sunday Summer Bible Study (SSBS) – Sundays @4:00-5:00pm – Join us on Sunday afternoons to dig a little deeper. This summer we will be following the same Scripture covered in worship. If you attended worship in the morning this is a chance to hear a little bit more, and if you want to attend the Gathering it is a chance to learn about the verses for the day before hearing a sermon about them. No matter what the case, it will be good discussion, time to share about each other, and space to grow personally.
Late Nite – Wednesdays @8:00-10:00pm – Late Nite is a time to hang out and go on adventures each week. The Summer Interns plan something fun and different each night and it is easy to invite friends. Join us for cool summer nights!
MS Service Days – Tuesdays @9:30am-1:00pm – Helping others is a great way to spend time over the summer, so join us each week as we explore a different organization and practice being in service to others. After we lend a helping hand we’ll grab lunch together, so be sure to bring some lunch money.
Movies & Foodies – Wednesdays @11am-1:00pm – Each week we’ll gather together in the Youth Loft (Room 333) and watch a movie on the projection screen while eating lunch together. Lunch is provided and prepared by the interns each week. Join us for some food and relaxation each Wednesday!
With Thanksgiving next week, we are officially at the beginning of the holiday season! We love this time of year, although it can certainly feel very busy.
