Wednesday Night Youth - Nov. 1, 8, 15
6:15 - Supper
6:45 - Nooma
For the month of November, the youth will be watching and discussing three of Rob Bell’s videos from the “Nooma” series. The first week we will learn more about Jesus’ disciples, what they were like, what it meant to be a disciple of a rabbi, and how it relates to being a disciple of Jesus. Hope to see you all there!

Missional Youth Ministry - November 5, 6:15
We have a terrific group of youth who are faithful followers of Christ, insightful, and dedicated to serving in mission, learning, and caring for each other. All of us have a part in nurturing, mentoring, encouraging, and supporting our youth. You are invited to join us in a dialogue about youth ministry, Sunday November 5,  6:15 p.m. in the youth room. We will discuss the book, Missional Youth Ministry which offers a new paradigm for youth ministry and practical guidance. Those interested in youth ministry are invited to read and discuss the book together with us. Pick up the book from Keith if you think you might be interested or find it on Amazon Kindle or Google Play Books.

Sunday Night Worship - Nov. 5, 6-8 pm
Sunday worship with the youth will be an opportunity for students to take the lessons and themes of morning worship and go deeper. By encountering scripture and discussing in group what it meant then and what it means for us today, the youth will explore being a disciple of God. Each week we worship with songs, psalms, the sermon text, experiential prayer (stations, art, journaling), shared stories, and fellowship.
