2017 Blue Knob, PA Mission Trip (July 16th-22nd)
Parent Meeting THIS SUNDAY!!  
This Sunday, June 25, 2017, we will have a parent meeting for everyone planning to go to Blue Knob. If you have not turned in your $50 deposit this is the day to do it. This is an opportunity for parents to ask questions and for us to finalize our group. We will meet right after church in the Youth Lounge. Please bring any payments and forms you haven't turned in yet! We will try to make it as quick as possible! 
 
All high school youth (including current 8th grade students) and young adults are eligible for this trip. The cost will be $250 per person and a limited number of scholarships are available. We are going with TEAMeffort who we have done many of our mission trips with in the past. This will be an exciting and new experience for many of us! The brochures for this event are available and can be picked up from the table outside of the Youth Dining Room.

CONFIRMATION SUNDAY
May 14, 2017 (Mother's Day)
On Sunday, May 14th many of our youth will join the church during the Confirmation Service in the Nave/Sanctuary.  All Confirmation students and parents should arrive by 9:30am that morning and meet in the Confirmation classroom (#134 & #136). We will skip the normal group breakfast meeting in the dining room with the rest of the youth group. Instead, we (all Confirmation students and their parents) will have donuts, juice, & milk in our classroom. 

Then at 9:45am (during the Sunday School hour) we will go up to the sanctuary to rehearse the ceremony. During rehearsal you and your parents will find out where to sit, stand, when to come forward, etc.. We will also make sure we have the spelling of each student's name correct on their certificate and card. As well as parent's names.

Dress nice. We will take a lot of photographs! In fact, plan on staying after the service for group photos in front of the stained glass.
