Youth Ministry Fall Programs Kick Off August 16
On Sunday, August 16, from 5-7 pm in the Fellowship Center, Youth Ministry invites all youth in grades 7-12 and their families to its kick-off celebration. Meet the youth ministry team, receive the yearly calendar of events, fill out important paperwork, get information about our exciting international senior high mission trip to Peru next summer, and have dinner (provided; free-will donations appreciated to offset the dinner expenses).
The Youth Choir, led by Assistant Music Director Tommy Strawser, has a meet & greet before the youth kick-off at 4 pm in A4. Parents welcome. Regular rehearsals begin the following week for both the Youth Choir and the Youth Handbell Choir. See the church calendar for details or contact Tommy Strawser or Ashley Snavley for details.
Junior High students have a special opportunity to go on a retreat with youth from other UMC churches in the valley, August 28-30, 2015, at Mingus Mountain. Visit www.Selfie-Retreat.com to read more and to register. The early-bird tickets are gone, but you can still register for the low fee of $95 for the whole weekend — meals and lodging included! Scholarships are available.
For all youth program questions, please contact Christopher Wurpts, youth ministries director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
