I have several exciting things to share with you about our youth ministry as we start the school year but I don't want to overwhelm you with all of them at once so I'm just going to share a little bit one blog post at a time.
First off, we have extended an invitation to join forces in youth ministry with Memorial Baptist for the school year, meaning most of our meetings/events will be done jointly. I'm in the process of recruiting a team from both churches to plan and help implement our activities for the school year.
The youth at Memorial are aware of this but I think it would be good for the FBC youth to officially invite them by visiting them at Sunday School this upcoming Sunday. This will give them an opportunity to mix a little bit and for us to tell them about our first big event our Youth Mini Olympics on Aug. 21st. We have done events with them before and 2 youth from Memorial are in our bell choir so they obviously aren't strangers, but making things official and hanging out would be fun.
Therefore, on Aug 14th after worship I would like us to caravan to Memorial Baptist, so if there are a few youth who can plan on driving over there and be available to give rides home afterwards to those who don't drive, that would be great. That way parents don't have to pick up their youth at Memorial or wait around for them at church. So, if you have any questions, please let me know.
