Come join the fun every Sunday morning at 9:15AM in the lower level Youth Room (September through May).
All 6th- 12th grade students are welcome to attend Youth Sunday School from 9:15-10:10AM Each Sunday!
Friends are always welcome, too!
We have a great group of Youth and look forward to meeting new people! Contact Angela Bertschi with any questions.
What’s going on for November in youth group?
Well, in Sunday School we are still studying the parables. So far we’ve looked at the Sheep and Shepherd, the Vineyard and the Workers, and the Good Samaritan. In the coming weeks we will be examining The Lost Coin, The Found Son, The Rich Fool and The Ten Talents. As usual, there will be silly games and maybe even a craft or two besides the bible study.
For November’s youth group outing we will be going to the movies. On Friday, November 17th we will pile into cars and go see the upcoming disaster movie “Geostorm.” What’s the plot, you ask? Well, when the network of satellites designed to control the global climate start to attack Earth, it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone. There will be floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, tidal waves, fires, and even giant snowballs! Can’t wait!
More details about time to meet at the church and the theater we will attend will follow as the date draws closer and I know where it will be showing that week. And as usual I will need a headcount the week before to make sure we have enough transportation. Just a yes/no email to me always works!
Looking ahead to December – the Sunday School and Youth programs are hoping to have a Progressive Dinner. For those of you not familiar with this concept, a number of willing church families each volunteer to provide one course of a meal for the youth of St. Jacob’s. The youth then travel from house to house until they’ve eaten the entire dinner. Courses include appetizer, vegetable, main course, and dessert. In the weeks ahead we will be searching for volunteers willing to host a course. It’s a tremendous amount of fun, the courses don’t have to be fancy, and it’s a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. Please contact Angela or Krista if you would be willing to provide a course.
November 23rd is Thanksgiving! I invite you to take a moment to say a prayer for all those who are less fortunate than yourselves. I wish each and every one of you a safe and fun holiday filled with family, love, and pumpkin pie!
