2018 was our second year providing meals to the homebound members of our community. Our youth worked hard preparing meals of turkey, rolls, green beans, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie for our deliveries.
Much thanks to all of the adult workers that helped make this possible. Cathy Helfer for working hard in the kitchen and preparing desserts, Jon Hetzel for driving our youth to the deliveries, and all of those workers at Sinclair’s Bakery that cooked the turkey for us which saved us a lot of time!
This year we were able to have four different teams go out into the community and deliver meals as well as spend some time talking to the individuals we delivered to. I think the youth did a great job this year and I look forward to increasing those that we are able to bless next year!
If you would like to help support this mission, be sure to check out our Mission Of The Month list or our Noisy Offering list for how to support us financially or e-mail the church at email@example.com for ways to get involved delivering meals, preparing desserts, or adding a name to our list for receiving a meal. Thank you for your support!
Creation Station is a fun activity for youth from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Each month, children will get a chance to get creative with our awesome Creation Station leader, Mindy Radcliff. She organizes art activities, crafts, and more that allow youth to express themselves and learn more about Jesus.
Creation Station always meets on Tuesdays from 4:30pm-5:30pm.
Our current upcoming sessions are:

On Saturday Oct. 27th, we’ll have a weenie roast/haunted farm trip for both Jr. and Sr. High youth. Meet at the church at 5pm and then we’ll head out to Louie and Rachel’s house for a weenie roast. When it gets dark, we’ll head across the street to ‘R’ Acres Haunted Farm.
If you don’t like haunted houses/farms, no problem! You can stay at the weenie roast while the rest of us get scared. You may even hear our screams. Seriously, it’s loud out there.
We’ll have soda and hot dogs, plus things for S’mores, but I encourage you all to bring your favorite chips or cookies.
We’ll need plenty of chaperones for this trip–a few for the weenie roast and some for the haunted farm. If you’d like to volunteer for one or the other, please let me know. Thanks all! Sign up below or on our facebook page.
Each month you can find the Mad Gab Memory Verse posted here. Be the first one to message me (through facebook/instagram/text/e-mail) and you’ll earn 5 points towards the current point competition. Once it’s solved, you can still earn points by reciting the memory verse (while not looking at your phone/bible).
Solved by Katelyn King:
“Therefore let us move beyond elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God.” (Hebrews 6:1)
This Fall, we’re going to make the point system a bit more competitive and fun. At the end of the year, the student with the most points will earn a $25 gift card! But wait, there’s more! At the end of the year, points will reset and we’ll start a new competition in the spring, but you can still keep those points you earned over the fall to lower the cost of all the fun things we do throughout the year.
But how do you earn points? Simple. Do stuff. Like, in youth group. Things. Do lots of things, have fun, bring a friend, and maybe even learn something.
Here’s a quick guide covering just a few of the ways you can earn points:
Showing up to group on Sunday nights – 2 points
Bringing a friend to group – 2 points
Reading the scripture verse for the night – 1 point
Saying the group prayer (gasp!) – 2 points
Solving the monthly memory verse – 5 points
Reciting the memory verse – 2 points
Attending service projects – 10 points
Attending retreats/camps – 10 points
This is not an exhaustive list, we may find other ways to earn points throughout the year, like maybe you do something totally awesome and Christ-like…well have some points then. You can check out how many points you have any time on the announcement board upstairs in the youth area.
