Youth Group

Youth Schedule 2021: 

Youth group from 7-8:30pm at the church on Sunday evenings (generally every other Sunday) to 6th-12th graders (with a few exceptions to that schedule).  We plan to split the group (into middle and high school) during most meetings and offer devotional time separately to each group (to encourage participation AND provide content that better fits the maturity level of the group).  To that end, we would love to have some parent volunteers who might be able to provide support for certain events/tasks throughout the year.  If you are interested, please let Lee Derrick know so we can build a volunteer group to appropriately dovetail the events/tasks with the volunteers.
Current Schedule:  8/22 from 4-6:30pm – we are planning a kick-off at the Derrick Family Compound in Shadyside (1320 West River Rd)….swimming, boating, volleyball, potluck food, etc….we also want to make sure parents can attend from 6:15-6:30 for a parent meeting…..attached is our information/permission form if you want to complete it prior to this event…..we will also have copies for you to complete while there….more to come on this soon….wanted to try to get the event on everyone’s calendar!

11/7 – quarterly food/bring-a-friend – these are intended to be special as we will have food and want to encourage the youth to bring friends (of course, friends are free to come to any meeting, but hopefully the existence of a “bring-a-friend” event will encourage them to think about/invite people throughout the year!)
