Youth Feats in February - 2018

Youth Worship Series
The youth have started a new focus on Sunday and Wednesday nights on the topic of worship as they explore the many parts of worship in biblical texts and in Christian services today, reflect on what worship looks like for each of them, and apply that worship to what our church does both inside and outside of the building. The first emphasis will be on Gathering: How do we come together and welcome each other as a church? How do we prepare our hearts, minds, and bodies for worshipping? How do we become aware of and invoke the presence of God in this service? The youth are planning to lead worship on a Sunday sometime in the Spring (Tentatively, May 6). If you would like more information or be involved in any way, please let either Keith or Adam know!  Hope to see everyone there!

Faithways Academy at Georgetown
Wednesday, February 28, 6:45 p.m. - Andrew Noe will be here with a student team from Georgetown College to discuss Faithways Academy and lead activities with the youth.  Parents who are interested in Faithways Academy for their youth are welcome to join us. Faithways is not a youth group trip but a great opportunity that some of our youth might want to take advantage of. Faithways Academy summer program, at Georgetown College, is aimed to help middle (1 week) and high school (2 weeks) students mature as Christian leaders in order to better serve the church and the world.  Learn more about Faithways Academy here: https://faithways.georgetowncollege.edu/

New Sunday Night Format
We have an idea for a new Sunday night format we would like to share. Join us and give us your thoughts as we develop this.
1. Youth led interest groups (We will decide together what these are and they can change. But might include groups like, basketball, spiritual journaling, music, etc.). The emphasis will be on inviting friends to join us.
2. Supper
3. Worship Experience

Fellowship - Missions - Spiritual Growth
We will try to emphasis each of these in our extra monthly activities:
February 4 - Super Bowl Sunday (Fellowship)
March 25 - Prayer Retreat at the Abbey of Gethsemani Monastery (Spiritual Growth)
April 13-15 - CBF Youth Missions Weekend (Missions)
