It’s Spring Break!
As everyone enjoys the rest and relaxation, I thought I’d put together a quick reference sheet for all of our summer activities and deadlines so that all of our parents who are solidifying their schedules can make sure they don’t miss out!
First, this is not summer, but, our Youth Sex & Sexuality Retreat is next weekend, and registration is closing ON SUNDAY. Registration is here.
On May 6, we’ll have Senior Recognition in the 11:00 service and, Youth Banquet in the evening. Be on the lookout for emails about that!
June 11 – 14 is Middle School Mission Blitz — this is our mission opportunity for our current 6th- and 7th-grade youth! They’ll stay at the Justin and serve at local non-profits, like the Tarrant Area Food Bank Learning Garden and Presbyterian Night Shelter’s Women and Children’s shelter. Registration is live and can be done here!
June 17 – 23 is High School Mission Trip — we’re taking our current 8th- through 12th-grade students out to Albuquerque, New Mexico to serve as part of the conference mission trip. They’ll help with home repairs and building relationships with underserved communities in the city alongside several other local UMC youth ministries! Registration can be done through the conference website here!
June 25 – July 1 is Cornerstone Youth Choir Tour — they’re hitting the Deep South! You can register here.
July 9 – 12 is Vacation Bible School — many of our youth usually volunteer as classroom helpers for the 600+ elementary students who will be at the church! The application to volunteer for VBS is here.
July 14 – 20 is Camp Barnabas — a camp in Missouri for children with physical and mental disabilities. Our youth serve one on one with campers, or as support staff for the camp. It’s an intense and powerful experience for all of our youth who go. All of our spots for girls are full, and we have 3 spots left for guys. Contact me (email@example.com) for more information.
Our graduated seniors will take a long weekend trip sometime in late July or early August, and if that’s something you’re interested in, please email youth staff.
August 19 is Youth Sunday — where our teenagers will lead and execute the entire 11:00 am worship service one week!
August 26 is Parent Meeting — where we’ll officially start the new school year!
