Youth Group Update

Virtual Sunday School –Virtual Sunday School – Middle school and High School will continue to be virtual while the church building is closed for remodeling. The two groups will meet together via Zoom at 11:00 am this Sunday. Our current series has us looking at the Kings of Israel. There is some pretty action-packed, drama-laden stuff going on in the stories of the kings. Check your email or weekly Messenger for Zoom link.

Save the Date – Feb 27 – Snow Day On Sunday, February 27, from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm we will be meeting up with youth from Baker Memorial UMC and Batavia UMC for an amazing outdoor “Snow Day.” We are banking on the weather cooperating and giving us plenty of snow that weekend, but we will have contingencies in place as well.
