Youth Group

The Youth Group is a resource for the younger members of the congregation.  Regular meetings are at the church from 6:30 to 8:00 pm on the first and third Sundays of the month - but check the Events Calendar for changes or updates.  Guests are always welcome.  Activities focus on building faith, social skills and service projects.  Special meetings throughout the year such as camp-outs, Christmas party, etc are also part of the fun.

The youth are planning to attend YRU-20 (Youth Re-Union 20th year) Feb 21-23 @ Lake Williamson Christian Retreat Center in Carlinville, IL The theme is "Living Christ". The program and music are to be by Celia Whitler. We have been represented at 15 of the 20 retreat weekends and enjoy them a lot. They get dynamic speakers and great bands (or musicians/singers). They plan to make this year a little more special since it is its 20th year of having it!!

We are collecting shoes for  "Donate Your Old Shoes",. based out of San Diego, CA. They ship the shoes to countries like Nicaragua, Liberia, Philippines, Honduras, Guinea and Zimbabwe. They have been a non-profit organization since 2006. Would like to collect 100 pair of shoes to send. We know that there are still quite a few people who say they have some to donate but keep forgetting. So far we have 73 pair.

Christmas Party - 2013

The Christmas Party went well. There was all kinds of good food and drink to snack on. We had a $15 gift exchange (we used the rob your neighbor format to see which gift you got). And Jeremey did the games. We played Minute to Win It. Many times we found out that we needed much more than a minute to do the task at hand.
