Hope everyone is enjoying their summers!

Ball season is nearly over for some and school is edging closer again.

In the Youth Group so far this summer, we've been to Carbondale Splash Park, seen Anthem Lights courtesy of Pepsi at the Miner's Ballpark, helped at the Carnival for the VBS kickoff, and have met every Sunday possible between Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Coming up, we've got a bonfire, nights at Herrin Bowl and Cape Splash, serve the Church congregation day and a water war before school starts.  Of course, we will have lessons on how to build relationship with God, who God is, and how to exemplify your faith to others.

Remember to like our Facebook page for all the updates, details and pictures.  Also download the GroupMe app and text me at (618) 925-6117  and I'll add you to the Youth Group feed for quicker updates!

And lastly, please check out the new youth board location in the sanctuary hallway across from the Sunday School rooms.  There is a food sign-up sheet if you would like to donate or help out and there's also a calendar of events for the duration of the summer.

Thanks and God Bless!

Jared and Jennifer Whitehead



Crainville Baptist Church recognized Grace Hagan on June 25, 2017.  Grace received "The Airman's Bible" and the congregation prayed for her.  She left for St. Louis on June 26 and will be flying to San Antonio where she will be in Basic Military Training for 8 1/2 weeks.  When she finishes BMT, she will go to Tech School at Sheppard Air Force Base for Aircraft Armament training.

Hello Crainville Baptist Youth!

Jennifer and I are extremely excited to have you in the youth program!  If you haven't come to a meeting before we would love for you to come and "try" it out and tell us what you think.  If you like it, feel free to invite a friend!

We are looking forward to having fun, making everlasting friendships and helping you in your daily walk with Christ.  No matter where you are in your relationship with Jesus, we would love to help you learn more.

There are many activities already in the works for the upcoming school year and we hope you will be able to attend.  I am very open to ideas of course from everyone for any events, activities, or lessons that you believe will be of spiritual benefit to our youth, Church, and community.

My goal for all our youth is that they all grow in the knowledge, love and saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and ultimately accept him as their Lord and Savior.  We are more than happy to answer any questions regarding your personal walk with Jesus Christ no matter how silly you may think the question is.

Each Youth Group Meeting will involve a lesson and how to apply the lesson in our daily lives.  These lessons will be biblically based and will involve discussions and activities.  Some lessons will have an assignment to be completed before the next meeting, typically a scripture memorization or an activity to complete.  We will also have an activity  at every meeting, so please make sure not to wear your Sunday best!

Youth Group Meetings will typically be on Sunday afternoons from 5 to 7 PM unless otherwise stated.

Jared & Jennifer Whitehead
