We are presently running a combined Jr. and Sr. Youth Group. Currently, with the Covid Pandemic, we have not been able to gather our youth together as much as we would like.
One event we did manage to fit in the summer of 2020, was an evening pool party at the Tyrone Borough Swimming Pool. The event was sponsored by our Congregational Life Team for the youth and members of the congregation. A large group showed up to swim and enjoy ice cream sundaes, root beer floats and lots of fun partying together. We thank the Lord for this fun evening in the midst of the pandemic.
2018 the youth had a Youth Retreat at Camp Blue Diamond.
We had games, crafts, campfires, swimming, canoeing and devotions, all in the context of a beautiful outdoor experience.
We also had several summer “Youth Events” which took place at people’s houses. These included a pool party with brick oven pizza, a Christmas in July event where we made cookies to benefit the Village at Morrison Cove, an outdoor movie event, and a Cook Out followed by fun (and sometimes, quite loud) games.
Our Youth Group presently meets in the church Youth Room on the first and third Sunday of the month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. We have a lot of fun playing games, solving riddles, doing Bible trivia (a fun contest where the students try to beat the pastor) as well as continued attempts at the “impossible shot”.
We also have an interactive Bible lesson with discussion and prayer. All of this is followed by some enjoyable snacks and more fellowship. We are having a great time growing together in our relationships as well as the most important relationship of all – our relationship with Christ! All youth grades 6-12 are welcome (and invite your friends!)
