Youth Ministry News
As we prepare to kick off another great year with our youth program, let us first look back and celebrate a very full, very fun summer:
- 15 youth participated in a 12-hour challenge from noon till midnight, after serving as tour guides during the week of VBS!
- 26 youth and adults traveled to Honduras for a truly life-changing, life-affirming mission trip with HOI.
- I am thrilled to partner with Covenant Presbyterian Church to take fifteen middle school youth (8 FPC, 5 CPC) for our first time at Massanetta. Hundreds of youth come together every summer for this special middle school conference that many liken to Montreat. The theme this year is, “Y’all Are Mine: created, claimed, called.”
- 11 middle school youth from FPC and Covenant Presbyterian rode 10 hours in the church van to participate in the Middle School Massanetta Conference with the theme, “Y’all Are Mine – created, claimed, called.”
- 14 high school youth from FPC and Reid Memorial Presbyterian, Augusta explored how to “Lift Every Voice” at this year’s Montreat Youth Conference.
I am really looking forward to seeing everyone back in The PIT later this month. We have a fresh coat of paint, some new furniture (courtesy of the Lancasters), and a new youth group schedule. We will have a combined Sunday School class, with a new 3-week series offered each month taught by different church members. Confirmation class will again be offered for those in 9th grade or older during the SS time. And once a month, we will gather after church for a time of fellowship over lunch.
Please mark your calendar for our Potluck Kickoff Meeting (parents and youth) to be held in Fellowship Hall on Sunday, August 26 from 6:15-8:00 p.m. Details to come.
Enjoy the last few days of summer…
