Welcome to fall 2020 Youth Activities!  Below you will find the details of our re-entry into face to face youth activities.  We are putting things in place to be sure we can be safe, distant, have an appropriate number of participants, and still feel connected, have fun, and grow in our faith!  We will have three opportunities for youth this fall.  I am REALLY looking forward to seeing you all!
Senior High:  Senior High Youth will meet every Saturday Night at from 6:15-8:00.  Youth are encouraged to participate in the Saturday Night Service at 5:30 and then stay for our activities, but are also welcome to come at 6:15!  Masks are required, and we will meet outside, weather permitting, so please dress for the weather.  This week we will be playing some games and then discussing: "Connection in the Pandemic.  Ideas to stay connected to friends and faith."  Please eat dinner before you come, as we will not yet be having dinner or snacks.  Bring a friend!  
*High Schoolers who are interested in serving as Middle School Small Group Leaders this year please respond to this email or let me know on Saturday.  
Middle School-Grades 7-8:  Youth Zone will continue for grades 7-8 on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. We will begin at 6:30 and will not serve dinner this semester.  Please wear a mask and dress for the weather as we will be doing outside activities as well as gathering in the gym.  We will be playing games and having choice activities such as crafts, drama, and mystery activities!  Come and watch your faith come alive!  Bring a friend! (6th graders will be joining us later in the year.)  
6th Graders: All 6th graders are invited to join us for an introduction to youth group called "Who AM I?"  This is a 6 week series that will take place on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.  Our first meeting will be September 23 from 6:30-8:00.  Please wear a mask and dress for the weather as we will be doing outdoor activities as well as gathering in the gym.  We will be doing a variety of activities...there will be something for everyone!  Dinner and snacks will not be served yet, so please eat before you come!  Friends are always welcome!  Invite someone today!  6th graders will be integrated into the Middle School Youth Zone after this series.

We know that some families are not yet comfortable with face to face activities.  I completely understand.  These are scary times and I am taking the virus very seriously.  If your youth of any age would prefer to participate in Zoom activities, please respond to this email and let me know.  We will be making opportunities to connect in this way, too!  Questions, concerns, or want to help?  Please let me know!  Thank you so much!  I am really looking forward to connecting with all of our youth this fall!~ Joy Bufano (This email address is being protected from spambots.
