Elementary Youth Group
Last Spring your journey was interrupted, but it is about to begin again! Our journey will take us through Jesus’ life right up until the time He is taken back to Heaven after His resurrection. At that point, you will be ready to start double Christmas play practices focusing on the birth of Jesus. From His birth to His death, we are going to learn about Jesus! And of course, we will be working in a lot of fun games and crafts each week as we learn together. See you next week!

It was great to hear Rhonda announce that plans are officially in motion for a Christmas Musical this year. Practices will being the first Sunday in October and it is definitely not too late to get your child involved. If interested, please feel free to reach out to myself or Rhonda at anytime.

High School Youth Group
Great job on the bike ride last Sunday! Seven miles seemed intimidating to some, but it turned out to be a piece of cake. I appreciated your flexibility as our kick-off was primarily focused on the younger members in our youth groups.
Speaking of toddlers, Theo is in a stage where the response to just about anything is: “Why?” Why do dogs bark? Because they can’t meow. Why can’t they meow? Because they are not cats. Why aren’t they cats? It seems like we were all born to ask questions, but when it comes to God, we sometimes feel guilty for asking too many questions.
To begin our Sunday evening time together, we are going to explore how questions can actually deepen our faith. This will occur right in the middle of fun activities and games led by your favorite High School sponsors, Casey and Erica Blakely. It’s going to be a great year!

Who is Jesus really? People have been asking that question for thousands of years. Even when Jesus was here on earth, people couldn’t figure Him out. Sometimes even His best friends weren’t so sure who He was. So one day Jesus asked them, “Who do you say that I am?” That question is the most important question by far any of us will answer in our lifetime. And that is the topic we will be discussing during our youth group time in September. See you on Sunday!
