Can you believe we are looking at 2019 already? For now, let’s take in the Holiday Season with rejoicing! There are a lot of events and activities coming up in the next few months, so mark your calendars.
Youth Forum meets in the comfortable youth room, Sunday mornings at 9:45am. We catch up, share the Gospel reading and then talk about moments in our lives when we feel Jesus’ presence. Youth 8th grade and older are invited to gather in this casual setting.
Jr. EYC Middle school Youth Group Nights are Tuesday evenings from 6-8. What a group! We share in our Blessings, enjoy a meal, engage in a group activity and then enjoy each others company at free time in the comfortable youth room. All middle school age youth and friends are invited to join us most Tuesday nights throughout the year (No EYC during winter break). We ask participating families to help provide a simple dinner (pizza, tacos, subs. Contact Paul or Frankie to sign up) once in the fall and spring. This a fun time to gather with others in a safe, friendly environment. Come join us and bring a friend!
Sr. EYC High school Youth Group Study Breaks meet on Wednesday nights, from 7-9pm. No EYC during winter break. All high school age youth are invited to hang out in the comfortable youth room, enjoy munchies, play xbox, wii, foosball, Uno, or just chill. Take a break from your busy schedules and recharge with other cool youth. A special Welcome Back EYC will be December 19 from 7-9pm for all former EYCers! Come on back and catch up with your old EYC buds. See you then!
The next Youth Summer Mission Trip meeting is Wednesday night, December 12 from 6:30-7:30. Mission Trip is open to all high school age youth (8th graders can participate this summer!) and adults as chaperons. We are beginning the plans for MT’19! Contact Paul Barker with questions about this important life-changing experience.
Jr. EYC Middle School Lock-In and MLK Mission Work Day will be January 20-21, 2019. The fun starts at 7 pm on the 20th. We will participate in fellowship and formation activities, camp out in the youth room and lounge, and have a Morning Prayer Worship on the 21st. Then, we pack breakfast bags for the Severe Weather Emergency Shelter, downtown Pittsburgh. Sign up forms will go out soon, or contact Paul Barker.
Acolytes, It’s time to be looking ahead to serving at one or more of our Christmas services. Please, respond to Paul Barker by email to sign up. Thank you!
