Week 1 September 4-10: Climate Change
Week 2 September 11-17: Non-Violence

We are closing in on our return to Sunday School and by extension Youth Group Game Night this month. I am super excited for a number of reasons. Most of all, I've missed playing games and teaching the kids.
This summer we did our first YG lock-in. Based on the feedback from the children who want to make it annual, it was a smashing success. I hope to do another next summer. It is a perfect way to engage the kids when they are on their summer break.
I hope to expand our game nights into Youth Group gatherings. I plan to include a short 5 -10 minute reading or discussion. After that, we will be playing a game that will revolve every so often. I want to encourage the children to bring friends as well. The hope is that this will help our church build relations with other children outside our normal members. Then, near ending time I will give them an opportunity to discuss some ways they want to help the community and/or church.
We will be meeting Wednesdays at 7 pm concurrent with choir rehearsal starting 9/14/22.
If you have any questions, or ideas that you have for helping engage our youth, please let me know. Look forward to seeing you all there.
