June 2016 Youth Update

Friday, May 27, 2016 View Comments Comments (0)
 
May was a time of new beginnings, including a new Sunday school schedule, and a number of high school, college, and other graduations.  We also celebrated the confirmation and membership of six awesome youth!  Nick B., Alyssa C., Nathan F., Alejandro M., Linnea S., and Ronnie S. completed confirmation work in class, on their own, and with their confirmation partners, Don L., Linda T., Greg H., Chas C., Katie C., and Gary C..  The confirmation class also had a fantastic retreat in San Francisco which included serving at Glide Memorial and participating in the high energy Glide Sunday worship.  What a great way for these outstanding individuals to start this new phase in their faith journey.  Our congregation is blessed that we get to share the journey together, young and old.

Join us for the annual Youth vs Men's Group Volleyball game on Tuesday, June 14 at 6 PM!  Last year the Youth group broke the Men's Group winning streak, and they are hungry for a repeat. Join us for a tasty dinner from the grill, world class volleyball, and homemade ice cream.Even if you don't want to play, come out and enjoy the food, fun, and fellowship.

Important Dates in June: 

    June 5-Youth Group Upper Room; June 14-Youth vs Men's Group Volleyball and dinner

In spring the Spirit is all around us, bursting forth in the natural world, and calling us to experience new growth in our relationships with God and each other.  The month of May is full of opportunities to connect in new, fun, and fulfilling ways. 

Beginning May 15, between the 9:30 am and 11:30 am services, join us for meaningful and fun ways to connect with others in our congregation.  Each Sunday you can participate in shared activities that range from hands-on outdoor projects, to arts and crafts, to adult study groups.  We are a faith community, a church family, and these short sessions are an enjoyable way to build and strengthen our bonds, within and across generations.  These are also easy ways to spend time with a prayer buddy or confirmation partner, or to make a new connection.  Join us May 15 at 10:30 am and let’s grow together.
