From our new Children, Youth, & Families Director, Ashley Evans, comes news of fun October events!
This month we will kick off activities for our middle school and high school youth. On the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, our middle schoolers (grades 5th – 8th) will come together for Prime Time including food, fun, and games. The first Sunday of the month, we’ll meet in Taylor Hall for snacks and then have activities in the youth room next to Taylor Hall. Activities will begin after church, and we will finish up by 1pm. The third Sunday each month will be an outing to include youth and families (as well as our younger kids and their families when the activity is appropriate). We hope to bring everyone together for fun outside of the church so our families can get to know one another even better! The first Prime Time get-together will be October 15th in Taylor Hall.
We invite our high school youth to meet for fun discussion with our CYF Director and a few of the young adults from church. This time with high schoolers will take place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday each month. We will meet in the Narthex after church and walk over to Chocolati Cafe together. Your first cup of yumminess is on the church! We will decide on a good name for this group together. Feel free to bring homework along if you like since we know there is so much to do and so little time on Sundays as you prepare for Monday. We will plan to return to the church by 1:00PM for youth to walk home or to be picked up. Our first get-together will be October 22nd – with this fall weather we are having here, we hope to warm up together with great refreshments and conversation on what’s going on in our lives and how God keeps working together with us.
On the last Sunday this month, October 29th, we invite all families with children of all ages to gather after church for a few family activities and a time to get to know each other.
Mark your calendars, and keep your eyes open for more information on these fun family activities and outings!
