Last FEED of the year!
April 28, 2019
Our last FEED of the school year will be on April 28, 2019! This will be our last meeting until the fall. We would love for everyone who has participated in FEED to come! We figure since it's our last one of the year we should do something fun! We're not sure what we're going to do yet, but we will let you know in next week's email! Students, if you have any ideas, let us know! We will meet in the student center right after the service and we will be back at the church by 3 pm!

Senior Recognition Sunday
May 12, 2019
On Sunday, May 12th, we would like to take a moment during the services to recognize our graduating seniors! So, if you are graduating this year, we would like to get some information from you so we can put it in an insert we plan to give to the congregation that day. This is what we need:
 
  1. A Senior photo (or just a recent photo)
  2. What school you are graduating from
  3. What school you plan to attend (if you know)
  4. What you plan to major in (if you know)
 
We would also like to remind our seniors that we are starting a new "College Prep" retreat this summer that we would love for all of our seniors to attend! This retreat is open to rising seniors as well as those who will have just graduated (YOU!) We will have more information about this retreat available soon, but it will be June 14th-16th so mark your calendar!!

Confirmation Retreat

This year's Confirmation Retreat is approaching fast. If you or your kids are a part of our Confirmation class then make sure you jot these dates down (if you haven't already). We will return to Lake Junaluska, North Carolina for our retreat. We will have four lessons over the weekend, play tons of games, eat great food, and visit the World Methodist Museum. This retreat is the most memorable part of Confirmation and we don't want anyone to miss it!

Parent Council Meeting - March 27, 2019

Parent Council Meeting
March 27, 2019
We will have a Parent Council meeting next Wednesday, March 27th from 6pm-7pm (while youth are in Bible Study). We tried to have a meeting a couple of weeks ago but we didn't have any parents attend so we're going to try again! We want to keep parents in the loop about all the things we have planned! We hope you can join us! All parents of youth are welcome!! 
 
Most changes that take place in the student ministry are a result of either the Youth Council or the Parent Council. The Youth Council is more focused on events while the Parent Council focuses on the ministry nuts and bolts (organization, education, procedures, training and structure). 
 
It is the venue in which parents and volunteers who genuinely care about the ministry get to talk about concerns and posit solutions. The creativity and dedication of previous parent councils have played a major role in the stability, effectiveness, and growth of our student ministry. If you really want to make a difference then this is a great place to plug in!

Ice Cream With A Youth Director!

Ice Cream With A Youth Director!
This is something that we started offering awhile ago, but we just wanted to make sure you all know that it is still available to you! If any of our students are interested in having a one on one conversation with Sara or Troy over ice cream they can! All we ask is that youth get written permission from a parent to do so and contact Sara or Troy about a time and place that works! This can be an opportunity for youth to ask questions, share about things they're struggling with, ask for advice, or even just enjoy a fun time getting ice cream!
 
We want our youth to know that we are here for them and they can come to us with questions or problems that they do not feel comfortable discussing in an open setting. The idea is that female students would go with Sara and male students would go with Troy, but also if a student would like to get ice cream with both of us that is okay too!
