Youth Group

We know the holidays are a busy time for you and your family, so let’s get straight to the point. Here’s everything you need to know about our ministry this month!A few things coming up….

*Hardin County Collective Nov. 3rd
*Wednesday Night Youth- Pizza Hut Nov. 20th
*Poinsettia Sales Starting

Our Youth this month will be studying a series called “Us for them” a 4 week series on loving others. Don’t you just love a little friendly competition? There’s something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for “us” and root against “them.” With people and with God, we’re often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this 4-week series, we’ll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we’re called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.M

Middle School Youth
We will be meeting 6:15 – 7:45 PM (meet in the Youth Room)

Wednesday Night Youth will be digging into a new curriculum called Grow this year. The month of October we will begin a 4-week study on identity called “The Haves and Have-Nots.” How many times have you compared yourself with someone else today? Seriously — see if you can count. Whether it’s their stuff, their looks, their skills, or their popularity, we can’t help but notice all the things other people have, and how those things compare to all the things we wish we had. But in this 4-week series, we’re going to focus on four things that God has given to every single one of us. You have a past, you have today, you have future, and you have a family. All four of these things make you valuable and uniquely you.

High School Youth 
We will be meeting 5:30 -7:00 PM (meet in the Youth Room)

Volunteer Opportunity:
The Lake of Lights Committee is gearing up for our 2019 event. On our “Wish List”, we hope for many volunteers to come to the park to help with the set up of the Lake of Lights Display. They are at the park starting Nov 2nd. They hope you will spare a few hours to help them with this community event. Just a few hours of your help will be very appreciated. Nov 2/3 Nov 9/10 Nov 16/17 Nov 23/24 Hours Saturday 9:30 am to 5:00 pm Sunday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Come out any time during these hours and they will help you get started. It is a great way to give back to our community. If you volunteer, remember to mark that you are working for St. John’s Church and your hours will go towards the youth.
Thank you!

Parents, you can’t do this alone. You need other adults to help you love and influence your youth. One thing we try to do for your family is to connect your youth with adults who love them and who can be trusted. If you haven’t met some of the adults who invest in your youth at church, this month is a great month to meet them!
