Summer Plans at Youth group

Hi everyone

The life of our youth group has moved into summer mode which means that we break and pause around our bible camp’s schedule and around the schedule of other summer offerings of our church.

During this summer we have four regular youth group nights from 6:30 until 8:30 PM for all Jr. and Sr High Students.  If your student can stay late, on July 3rd and August 21st we will host an after youth group movie night until about 10:30.

Here is the schedule for those four nights.

-    July 3rd (The Hobbit)
-    July 17th (special time and details TBA)
-    August 14th
-    August 21st (scavenger hunt during youth group, movie to follow)

I look forward to getting to know better our new 6th grade students and those that we have already had the opportunity to work with and I’m trusting that they will enjoy being a part of our group and that they will be strengthened in their faith.

I look forward to see you all soon

Pastor Mark
