All Are Welcome

Our goal as a youth group is to figure out together what it means to be disciples of Christ, and to follow what Jesus laid out as the two greatest commandments: love God, and love your neighbor. We are committed to being a supportive community that strives to hold one another up and walk alongside one another in faith.

YOUTH FELLOWSHIP, Sunday Evenings from 5:30-7pm

Youth Fellowship is a time for us to gather to share a meal, some fellowship, and a devotional. Some YF’s are for the whole group to meet together (such as our Christmas Party and New Year’s Kick-off), and some are separated for either JH youth or SH youth. Check the calendar to find out when your group is meeting! This is a great event to bring friends to who have never been to youth group before.

JH BIBLE STUDY, Sunday Mornings from 9-10am

Once Jenna returns from Maternity leave, JH and SH will once again split for their Bible Studies. JH will remain on Sunday mornings during the first service from 9-10am and will be taught by Jenna and Ben Link.

COFFEE HOUR, Tuesdays at Panera on Tremont from 3-5pm

Jenna will be at Panera from 3-5pm most Tuesdays (no school means no coffee hour), and you are welcome to stop by for 10 minutes or the whole two hours at any time. Think of this like open office hours- stop in if you have questions, would like to talk, or just want to hang out for a bit. You can also just bring your homework and have someone to sit with while you work on it for a bit after school. All are welcome.

FUNDRAISERS

We will do a series of fundraisers to help cover the costs of our summer trips. Funds raised go toward keeping costs low for each participant. Please plan to participate in any fundraiser for summer events you plan to attend.

LOCK-INS

Both SH and JH youth have a lock in during the winter here at church. For the lock-in, we stay overnight at the church and are up late playing games. It is all about fellowship, and we always have a lot of fun.

All Youth Retreat- March 24-25, 2018

Our Youth Retreat is at Marmon Valley Farms and includes a horseback trail ride, a hay ride, a climbing wall, camping out in cabins, and lots of fun and fellowship alongside our Bible Studies and devotional time. Cost is $60. Students grades 6-12 are welcome to join!

ASP- Appalachia Service Project- June 17-23rd 2018

Senior High Mission Trip- You do not need to have any construction experience to go on ASP. We learn as we go, and will place new beginners with experienced ASP volunteers to ensure that every team is equipped to succeed. Cost is $85.

Our goal is to help make homes in Appalachia warmer, safer, and drier while sharing the Gospel.

JH Mission Trip- July 23-27th 2018

We work with Jackson Area Ministries to build wheelchair ramps and complete small repair projects on homes in southern Ohio. No construction experience is needed and we love having first-timers with us! Cost is $75.

Our goal is to be the hands and feet of Christ as we meet the real needs of God’s people.
