Youth Group News

September 2004

The youth group got back together late this summer for an outing to Six Flags. In spite of the heat and crowds we had a wonderful time. Those who were there enjoyed catching up with each other after a long and fun summer.

While the youth were riding roller coasters and water rides, adults began discussions for next year, including service projects, time for fellowship and fun, fund raising and something we are very excited about, a possible mission project next summer. Of course we still have the Youth Center project to finish up! Our plan is to meet Sunday evenings from 6-8 pm with our kickoff meeting on September 19th. We look forward to our incoming sixth graders joining the group, and also will be sponsoring activities for all ages during the year.

Thanks to Laura Preston and Diane Stickney for their offer of help in leading the group next year. Thanks to Pastor Jan for her ongoing support and inspiration, Diane Boucher, for all her help, and of course the Women's Group and the church members for all of their support of us!

The Youth has had a very productive and fun winter season! It's such a pleasure to work with a group of Youth with such great energy and attitude and so committed to serving others. We worked hard to raise $250 in cash and supplies to donate to the Salem Animal Rescue League. Thank you to all our church family for their generous donations and support. We had a great day at the Preston's by the Lake, warmed by a bonfire and hot chocolate, with pizzas, S'mores, skating and relaxation among great company. Thanks, Laura and George and family!

This spring we are working on our Youth Center, cleaning, painting and fix-up. See dates below or our wish list if you would like to contribute to our efforts. We will also be organizing an Easter service project later in March, as well as a recycling project. Stay tuned for more information.

Thanks to Jeannie Kregger and Aletha Wood, and the Woman's Group for their donations and support, and the parents of the Youth who assist and offer goodies and ideas.
