Jr High Youth Group


The purpose of youth group is to give the kids an opportunity to apply what they have learned in Sunday School and church and to further develop Christian friendships/relationships. Junior High Youth Group is for any student currently in fifth through eighth grades. Youth Group meets Sunday evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. Youth Group is organized to include the following: dinner, activity/game, praise music, Bible lesson, and prayer.  A solid program should include the following: service project, mission trip/project, monthly activity outside the meeting time, one or two retreats a year, and parent involvement.

We raise money to help defray the costs of activities, retreats, and a mission trip by serving several luncheons throughout the year where donations are accepted. We have a partnership with Washington City Mission, Washington, Pennsylvania, where we complete a volunteer project on-site, participate in their Hearts of Hope Fundraiser, and purchase much-needed medical supplies for their health office. We have activities outside the regular meeting time for fun and fellowship (bowling, skating, golfing, swimming, etc.). We go on a mission trip for three or four days in the summer to reach out to others in need. We are slowly incorporating retreats into our programming.
