Youth Knews: Faith, Emmanuel, andLong Memorial UMCs
The Youth are very active. We meet weekly and throughout the year enjoy a variety of fun activities: going to Gretna Glen camp every month, playing lots of Gaga Ball, sardines, and just goofing off. We are preparing to attend a powerful retreat in January 5-7, 2018 at Ocean City, MD with the Peninsula Delaware Conference--which has become an annual tradition.
The youth ministry is open to everyone in 5th -12th grade. We have about 25 students involved--and about a dozen students at each event. The youth come from Faith, Emmanuel and Long Memorial UMC, several other local churches, plus their friends and family. We have students from 5 or 6 different school districts and private schools. So, if it has been a while since you have been with us for youth activities, I encourage you to come and check out the new energy surrounding this ministry!
Sunday Mornings at 9am the youth meet for Sunday School at Faith UMC—which includes an engaging lesson by Julie Perkowski and Amy Boughter and a chance for discussion and fellowship. Long Memorial is also hosting their Youth Sunday School at 9:30am.
Sunday Nights Youth Group runs from 5-7pm.
We have a large group game or sports, a snack, and then a lesson—and of course lots of fun and laughter. We also have a game room with foosball and pool tables.
We are currently beginning a whirlwind tour of our faith from Genesis to Revelation. You won't want to miss a lesson, if you join us for the next 12 months you will have covered the highlights of the Jewish and Christian history and our core beliefs.
We will NOT meet on May 6 (since it is the day after our trip to the Susquehannock State Park) or May 13 (Mother’s Day—spend time with your mom or other special ladies).
On Saturday, May 5, the Youth Group will travel to Susquehannock State Park for a day of hiking and hanging out. Bring a water bottle, snacks, sunscreen and hiking shoes/boots. Hot Dogs will be grilled for lunch. We will meet at Faith at 9am and be back by 3pm. There is no cost for that trip, but we do need to have you bring a signed permission slip.
Youth will also help at the Faith UMC Community Day on Saturday, May 12 from 6AM (to set up before the event) to 2PM. We need help running the yard sale which benefits the Annual Youth Winter Rally in Ocean City, MD and possibly with the bounce house and other kid's games.
