Resurrection 2020
January 24-26, 2019
Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about Resurrection! This is our biggest trip of the year. Resurrection is an awesome annual event of worship and spiritual growth for youth and youth mentors. Each year over 12,000 come together in Pigeon Forge, TN, to celebrate the God of the Resurrection. Through inspirational words and music led by nationally-known speakers and musicians, young people encounter the Lord in new and deeper ways. Sign ups and brochures are out now!
 
 
 
We have many youth who are only able to participate in Resurrection because of scholarships. If you need a scholarship application or you are willing to donate to help a youth attend Resurrection please let us know! Any size donation is welcome!

Potluck Pajama Christmas Party!
December 8, 2019
This year our Youth Council has decided they would like to have a Potluck Pajama Christmas party! We would like for youth to wear their pajamas and to bring a dish to the dinner so that there will be plenty of food for everyone. Click the link below to sign up for what dish you are going to bring!
 
 
Meet at the church with your covered dish or assigned treats at 4:30pm. We will travel by church vans to the home of Todd & Heather Cockerham for the party and meal. We will return to the church at 7:30pm.
 
We will also have a gift exchange. If you want to participate, just bring a gift that is around $15-$20.

Youth Band
Are You Interested?
Lately the youth band has been joining The Vine band on a rotation because the youth band doesn't quite have all the people it needs to stand on its own. This will continue for now, BUT if you have not been a part of the youth band and are interested in joining or learning more please let Troy or Sara know and we will put you in contact with Jeff! We would love for this group to continue to grow!

We had such an awesome time at NEXUS a couple weekends ago! We spent the weekend at Ocoee Ridge Camp with 10 other churches from the district! We spent the weekend in worship, hearing from our speaker, Kevin Alton, and participating in fun activities like paintball and high ropes! There were over 200 students in attendance! We had a great time and can’t wait for next year! 
 
Check out our photos from the weekend if you want to see a small glimpse into all the fun we had!

FEED Small Group - High School Only
November 17, 2019
This is our third FEED of the school year! We hope many of our high school students will be able to attend!
 
All high school students who are interested in participating in FEED will meet after church and we will all (girls and guys) go downtown somewhere for lunch. Then we will come back to the church and have small group. Last month the students who were present decided on some topics to discuss so we will have a discussion around one of those topics, but if you have any ideas for other topics we hope you will share those with us as well!
 
We will meet in the student center after church. We will be finished by 3:00 pm.
 
MARK YOUR CALENDARS: The FEED dates for the school year are 11/17, 1/5, 2/16, 3/29, 4/19, 5/17

Parent Council Meeting - November 13, 2019

Parent Council Meeting
Wednesday, November 13th
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! 
 
Our next Parent Council meeting will be this Wednesday, November 13th! We will discuss Romania 2020, rescheduled Xmas party, etc. All parents of youth are welcome to attend and bring their ideas! We will meet from 6pm-7pm in the youth dining room in the student center. Hope you can join us!
