Hello, Saints James and Andrew youth!
We had a great summer of fun outings, and now that we're settled into our school year routine, we're ready to kick off some fall programming! A quick reminder that you are always welcome to bring a friend or two to any youth events. A week by week schedule is below, and here are a few details:
On the first and third Sunday of each month, we will meet at the church Meeting Room at 11:15 a.m. (shortly after the 10 a.m. service for those in attendance). On first Sundays we'll go out for lunch together at a nearby restaurant, paid for by the church. On third Sundays, we'll all bring our own packed lunches and eat outside when it's nice, or in the Meeting Room when it's not. Following lunch we'll play board games and have discussions around a different topic each week. Feel free to bring your favorite board games! We'll end by 2:00 p.m.
On Monday, October 11th - Indigenous People's Day (formerly Columbus Day) - we will go to Mike's Maze from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. Entry will be covered by the church, but we suggest bringing spending money for concessions and games / attractions.
On Sunday, November 14th, we plan to join the youth group of St. Paul's Lutheran church in Greenfield at noon to assemble school kits for Lutheran World Relief to distribute to students in need across the world. Plan to eat lunch beforehand, but the church will be providing ice cream sundaes. We may be collecting items from our congregation for these kits in the coming weeks.
In December, we will volunteer again for Second Helpings. Stay tuned for the exact date soon.
For Youth Group on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, just show up! No need to RSVP. For all other events, we will send out a quick and easy RSVP form about a week before like we did this summer.
Any questions or suggestions for other fun things to do in the New Year? Let us know!
