Hey Youth,

As we enter the summertime for youth group, we will be focused on spending time and building our youth group chemistry. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for extracurricular events. If you have any questions, please reach out!





Dates for May are:



The flamingo “flocking” project has been very successful this spring! We raised $2600!

We want to say a big thanks to the community and the church for their generous support!

We also want to give God glory for turning this into a ministry of blessing folks during this difficult time. We received many positive comments and calls from the community. The flamin- go project, while raising money for the youth, also brought joy to the “flocked” as well as their neighbors! We are so thankful that God used this as a ministry to bless folks during this time of quarantine.

As you may already know, the Alaska mission trip is being moved to next year. The camp we intended to visit shut down for the entire month of June. The kids and families have already been told, but we wanted the church family to know as well. On a positive note, now we have additional time to raise more money! God is good, and always has a plan for us!

I miss all of you very much and can’t wait to get together again!





Dates for April are:


Hey Youth,

Just wanted to say I miss you all dearly and can’t wait till this is all over and we can have Youth again! Until that hap- pens, I want everyone to keep their heads up and stay positive that this will end soon! I miss you guys, and if you need anything, please text or call me about anything!!! Also, we will keep up with our weekly FaceTimes so we can stay in touch! Until then, I love you guys and remember, we are never alone in this quarantine because we have God    right beside us always!

                                          Love, Montana

Sept. 23 note from Montana:

Hey just wanted to give everyone some youth group updates. 


Tomorrow Tuesday the 24th We will meet at the church at 6pm to volunteer at Gum drops for anyone that can go.

Also there is a sign up sheet on the youth board for anyone that is wanting to go on the trip to Alaska in June 2020. The final day to sign up for the Alaska trip will be October 6th. After we have our sign ups we will have another meeting to just talk about the trip.


 I also want to inform everyone of the Yard Sale Fundraiser we will be having at the church on Saturday October 5th from 7am to 2pm. I will have the kids sign up for different shifts to work and will have a flyer to pass out and to post for everyone to share this week. And please if anyone has any items to donate you can put them in the senior high youth room. We will gladly take your junk. 


And the last announcement is that Baraba Finney has asked us to pull some weeds at her house for her and she  is going to pay the youth for their work so I will need a couple of the youth to meet at the church at 5pm on Monday Sept 30th. The kids have already been informed of this. I am done rambling now lol.


For any questions do not hesitate to ask me! Thank you everyone!
